This Bastard Dance

This bastard dance
Of furtive movements
And stumbling steps
Has broken my self-confidence

I’m going to miss
The sound of your footsteps
Seeing you smile
And hearing you sing

This bastard dance
Has twisted my ankles
Shattered my kneecaps
And dislocated my hips

I’m going to miss
The nervous way you play with your hair when you talk to me
I’m going to miss
The way you touch the part of my heart I thought was safely hidden away
I’m going to miss
This bastard dance

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
