Dancing on My Own

Dancing on My Own by the Swedish singer Robyn has the feel of an 80s tune.  I think we have all experienced the heartbreak of being in love with someone that is in love with someone else.  I used to let myself feel so hurt by the fact that the person I had feelings for didn't have the same feelings back.  The realization was that I had to love myself more and ultimately if that person didn't see how amazing I was then it was their loss.  When you are a young teenager it's not that easy to deal with but it is a part of life.  Robyn had her first number one hit in the late 90s called Do You Know What it Takes and has since released 7 albums and has won 10 Swedish Grammy Awards.  An artist that knows how to change with the times and will be around for the long run.      

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

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her (Oooh)
I'm right over here, why can't you see me (Oooh)
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home (Uuuh)
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 out of line
Stilettos and broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her (Oooh)
I'm right over here, why can't you see me (Oooh)
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home (Uuuh)
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 (Oooh)
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home (Uuuh)
I keep dancing on my own
(I keep dancing on my own)

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her (Oooh)
I'm right over here, why can't you see me (Oooh)
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home (Uuuh)
I keep dancing on my own
(I keep dancing on my own)
(I keep dancing on my own)
