They say this lasts forever That's just what I'm afraid of I'll never dance like this again She smiled like a Georgia summer She laughs with the sound of thunder I wanna dance like this again
I'm not the marryin' kind I've said a thousand times But I've never danced like this before She's got them pretty little shoes And I love the way she moves I wanna dance like this again
I was free and far from home I was young and on my own I was blind as I could be Thinkin' love was not for me Till the night I met the girl named Tennessee
Lights came down and the room spun slow Started sayin' she had to go Don't go baby I didn't get your name She said Don't worry I did not say
Oh she danced away with my Heart and soul Who she was I will never know
Danced away with my Hopes and dreams My sweet girl from Tennessee

Dido helped shut down a Neo-Nazi Web site after learning it was using "White Flag" to promote its hateful messages. Owners of the site had misinterpreted the track as racist and thought they represented their white supremacy views.
