  • Yesterday, well it seemed so cool
    When I walked you home, kissed goodnight
    I said "it's love" you said "all right"
    It's funny how I could never cry
    Until tonight and you pass by
    Hand in hand with another guy
    You're dressed to kill and guess who's dying?
    Dance away the heartache
    Dance away the tears
    Dance away

    Loneliness is a crowded room
    Full of open hearts turned to stone
    All together all alone
    All at once my whole world had changed
    Now I'm in the dark, off the wall
    Let the strobe light up them all
    I close my eyes and dance till dawn
    Dance away

    Now I know I must walk the line
    Until I find an open door
    There was I, many times a fool
    I hope and pray, but not too much
    Out of reach is out of touch
    All the way is far enough
