As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies, something in your eyes
Calls to mind the silver screen
And all it’s sad good-byes
I’m never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it’s easy to pretend
I know you’re not a fool.
Should have known better than to cheat a friend
A wasted chance that I’ve been given.
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you
Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind
There’s no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you’ll find
Never without your love
Tonight the music seems so loud.
I wish that we could lose this crowd.
Maybe it’s better this way —
We’d hurt each other with the things we’d want to say.
We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who’s gonna dance with me
(Now that you’re gone) Now that you’re gone
(Now that you’re gone) What I did was so wrong, so wrong
That you had to leave me alone…
