Keep your legs from shaking, fill your eyes with new tears
Don't ask questions, you don't know your name
Something for everyone, try to win prizes
Stay young and quiet

Tall saint I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you
Bubbles to the chandelier
I'm in your hands tonight
Tall saint stay behind me

Don't tell everybody at the table about your dreams
They're too amazing, it'll melt their minds
Take 'em to Hollywood, cut out the good parts
Become millionaires

Tall saint I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you
Bubbles to the chandelier
I've been looking for you all night
Tall saint stay behind me now, tall saint

In my city I didn't make a sound
When I fell over and cracked my crown
Heard a woman say stay down
Champion stay down

Tall saint I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you
Bubbles to the chandelier
I'm in your hands tonight
Tall saint stay behind me now
Tall saint stay behind me now, tall saint

In my city I didn't make a sound
When I fell over and cracked my crown
Heard a woman say stay down
Champion stay down

But I got up, got in a car
Said I don't think I'm gonna go very far
Just take me one time around the ballroom slow
And take me home
