Hallo, my name is Vladimir, Im from Serbia.
Flashdance Soundtrack
Im sorry if these chords looks unnecessary,
but there are really a small changes in sound of this song.
I used a star * to note that the regular chord got a little difference than normal.

Original key: B


[Intro]

C*, Dsus4, Em* 
C*, Dsus4, Em* 


[Verse]

         Em                  Em6
Just a small town girl on a Saturday night
        Em7                 Em(maj7)
Looking for the fight of her life
        C                      Cadd9
in the real time world no one sees her at all
       Cadd9(13)   B7sus4 B7
they all say she's crazy

Locking rhythm to the beat of her heart
Changing movement into light
She had danced into the danger zone
When the dancer becomes the dance


[Pre-Chorus]

A7*                     B7*                            C*
It can cut you like a knife if the fight becomes the fire
                    B7(b13)            B7
On the wire between will and what will be


[Chorus]

         C*      Dsus4    Em*
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
           C*                Dsus4          Em*
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

         C*      Dsus4    Em*
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
           C*                Dsus4          A9
And she's dancing like she's never danced before


[Verse]

On the ice blue line of insanity
is a place most never see
It's a hard won place of mystery
touch it but can't hold it

You work all your life, for that moment in time
It could come or pass you by
it's a push shove world but there's always a chance
if the hunger stays the night 


[Pre-Chorus]

There's a cold kinetic heat struggling stretching for the peak
Never stopping with her head against the wind


[Chorus]

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before


[Interlude] 

C, B7, Em 
C, B7, Em 


[Solo] 

chords like in verses


[Pre-Chorus]

It can cut you like a knife if the fight becomes the fire
On the wire between will and what will be


[Chorus]

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

...maniac, maniac on the floor (I sure know)
And she's dancing like she's never danced before...
