You Used To Love To Dance Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Lying in a city night
A million fingers tingling my skin
Out there in the sea tonight
I though I saw you clutching your sin

You rolled me over long ago
And told me you were strong enough to go
You needed more than this lover's dream
You need the steel and the concrete beams in your life, in your life

We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
Every Saturday night
Hey for fifty cents we'd dance all night long
And each new tune we said, "That's our song"
Oh it felt so right, well ecstasy ain't free
But compromise is chance
I remember how you used to love to dance

They told me you have found your love
You moved in locked up and put out your blues
Well all God's children got to grow up
And play house, make vows to hang up their shoes

Do you sit and talk over coffee cups
Do headline mornings satisfy and fill you up
I kept your eyes and your cigarette kiss
You couldn't keep the lies, the adrenalin bliss in your life, in your life

We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
Every Saturday night
For fifty cents we'd dance all night long
And each new tune we said, "That's our song"
Oh it felt so right, well ecstasy ain't free
But compromise is chance
I remember how you used to love to dance

I'm gonna go out tonight
I'm gonna drive up to the hill
I'm gonna dive on into those city lights
And I'm gonna dance, dance, dance till I get my fill

We laughed and drank in the jukebox light
And we tore the rug in that downtown dive
Every Saturday night
Yeah for fifty cents we'd dance all night long
And each new tune we said, "That's our song"
Oh it felt so right, well I know, I know ecstasy ain't free
But compromise is chance
I remember how you used to love to dance
