  • After your faith has let you down
    I know you'll want to run around
    And follow the crowd into the night
    But after the disco
    All of the shine just faded away
    Oh oh oh oh
    Do what you want
    Do what you will
    Don't tell me it's not our time

    'Cause I'm
    Waiting here much too long and
    Don't assume
    That I need your love
    The chill of night has got you dancing away
    And I'm
    Not the dreamer or the dream you're
    Out there looking for

    How did I get in this winding maze of love?
    And there's something wrong and it's sending you
    Round and round 'til we go nowhere

    I see the ashes on the ground
    I know the world is burning down
    And under the cold and empty moon
    But after the disco
    All of the shine just faded away
    Oh oh oh oh
    Do what you want
    Do what you will
    But you can't hide
    Oh oh oh oh
    Do what you want
    Do what you will
    Don't tell me it's not our time

    'Cause I'm
    Waiting here much too long and
    Don't assume
    That I need your love
    The chill of night has got you dancing away
    And I'm
    Not the dreamer or the dream you're
    Out there looking for

    How did I get in this winding maze of love?
    And there's something wrong and it's sending you
    Round and round 'til we go nowhere Writer/s: BRIAN BURTON, JAMES MERCER
