  • Somebody said you got a new friend
    Does she love you better than I can?
    It's a big black sky over my town
    I know where you at, I bet she's around
    Yeah, I know it's stupid
    I just gotta see it for myself

    I'm in the corner
    Watching you kiss her
    Oh oh oh
    I'm right over here
    Why can't you see me?
    Oh oh oh
    I'm giving it my all
    But I'm not the girl you're taking home
    Ooh ooh ooh
    I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

    I'm just gonna dance all night
    I'm all messed up, I'm so outta line
    Stilettos on broken bottles
    I'm spinning around in circles

    I'm in the corner
    Watching you kiss her
    Oh oh oh
    I'm right over here
    Why can't you see me
    Oh oh oh
    I'm giving it my all
    But I'm not the girl you're taking home
    Ooh ooh ooh
    I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

    So far away, but still so near
    (The lights go on, the music dies)
    But you don't see me standing here
    (I just came) to say goodbye

    I'm in the corner
    Watching you kiss her
    Oh oh oh
    I'm giving it my all
    But I'm not the girl you're taking home
    Ooh ooh ooh
    I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

    I'm in the corner watching you kiss her
    Oh oh oh
    I'm right over here
    Why can't you see me
    Oh oh oh
    I'm giving it my all
    But I'm not the girl you're taking home
    Ooh ooh ooh
    I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

    (I keep dancing on my own)
