Too Hurt to Dance

Album: Endlessly (2010)

  • I was sad there,
    In the shadows of a place we used to go
    Drinking cocktail after cocktail
    Wondering if you'd show

    My head started spinning
    My mouth was feeling dry
    Lost inside the music I,
    I was trying not to cry

    If they call it heartache
    If they call it heartache
    Why is the rest of my body aching
    Why is the rest of my body shaking

    Please Mr. DJ won't you turn the music down
    Why can't you understand
    I'm too hurt to dance tonight

    I was sad there, looking solemn
    He said I stood out from the crowd
    He offered me a friendly face
    To wipe away my frown

    But I won't talk to strangers
    There words are all the same
    So I drowned inside this drinking glass
    To take away the pain

    If they call it heartache
    If they call it heartache
    Why is the rest of my body aching
    Why is the rest of my body shaking

    Please Mr. DJ won't you turn the music down
    Why can't you understand
    I'm too hurt to dance tonight

    Please Mr. DJ won't you turn the music down
    Why can't you understand
    I'm too hurt to dance tonight Writer/s: AIMEE DUFFY, ALBERT HAMMOND
