There are few things I take chance with
Few things I care to put myself through

Dancing alone isn’t so bad
Sleeping alone isn’t so bad
I’d toss and turn anyway

They say the truth comes out
When you’re unconscious

I’d talk in my sleep anyway

Dancing alone isn’t so bad
Sleeping alone isn’t so bad
I’d toss and turn anyway

Dancing alone isn’t so bad
I’d trip on your foot anyway

Dancing alone…
Isn’t so bad…

Put my hand on my chest…
Feel the rhythm…
Of the irregular heart…

A girl shouldn’t have to think these things
But I think these things for my own sake

The dancers are picking up pace
I’m still standing on the sidelines

It’s never worth the risk
Of a broken foot

A girl shouldn’t have to think these things
But I think these things for my own sake

Dancing alone isn’t that bad
It only hurts a little…
