lyrics

You always swore you wanted what was best for me
Kept me safe inside and held me desperately
And every happy thought I ever dared pursue
You shot them down so quickly, I don't know why I kept loving you

Now I have another song to sing
A chaotic, sweaty, fearless, pretty, perfect sort of thing
She don't pass her beer off to any other man
She gets me to cancel all my plans

These days I'm dancing
Don't call me after ten
'Cus I'll be dancing
I will not live for you like I did back then

Yes I'll admit I still get nightmares sometimes
Locked away in darkness for some awful crime
But it's not like I come to and wish that you were here
I would rather not wake up than wake up next to you, my dear

Now I have her smile to look forward to
When all I ever used to get was tears from you
She always smells like fireworks, a new color everyday
She speaks for me when I don't know what to say

These days I'm dancing
Don't call me after ten
'Cus I'll be dancing
I will not live for you

Now I know that everything good isn't always true
I lie to myself to give me something to do
But when she stops and spins around in place
As streetlights play upon her face
It's a full moon and it's time to forget about you

These days I'm dancing
Don't call me after ten
'Cus I'll be dancing
I will not live for you now

These days I'm dancing
Don't call me after ten
'Cus I'll be dancing
I will not live for you like I did back then
