Dance Away From Me

The sun is rising,
People are drifting away,
Going home after a night on the town.
You and I dance as lovers,
But I know there's another,
And the music has a haunting melody
As I watch you
Dance away from me.

How many times I've told you,
"You and I are free."
But it wasn't real then, like tonight.
Now I want to hold you,
So I don't have to see:
You dance away,
Dance away from me.

Always together,
I thought I knew you so well,
Thought I always listened
And that nothing was wrong.
Now it seems I haven't heard
What you’ve told me without words.
I've lost you, it's so plain to see:
I watch you
Dance away from me.

How many times I've told you,
"You and I are free."
But it wasn't real then, like tonight.
Now I want to hold you,
So I don't have to see:
You dance away,
Dance away from me.

Dance away, dance away, dance away, you're free.
You dance away,
Dance away from me.

Dance away, dance away, dance away, you're free.
You dance away,
Dance away from me.
