You're standing there alone
And so am I
But I want you here
By my side
Your smile at me
Is everything
The staring game
That song of love.

I look you in the eyes
I try to read you thoughts
I ask you to go with me
To a far off place.
Oh.

I look you in the eyes
I try to read you thoughts
I ask you to go with me
To a far off place.

You and me dancing the night away
You can feel my heart beating so hard.
We look eye to eye
And I'm swept away.
On a moonlit walk on the beach
Watching the sunrise for the first time
I'm in a trance
From that one slowdance.

You're standing there alone
And so am I
But I want you there
By my side
Your smile at me
Is everything
The staring game
That song of love.

I look you in the eyes
I try to read your thoughts
I ask you to go with me
To a far off place.
Oh.

I look you in the eyes
I try to read your thoughts
I ask you to go with me
To a far off place.

You and me dancing the night away
You can feel my heart beating so hard.
We look eye to eye
And I'm swept away.
On a moonlit walk on the beach
Watching the sunrise for the first time
I'm in a trance
From that one slowdance.

We don't have to talk,
We don't have to laugh at all
I just want you here with me

We don't have to talk,
We don't have to laugh at all
I just want to be
You and me

You and me dancing the night away
You can feel my hearting beating so hard
We look eye to eye
And im swept away.
On a moonlit walk on the beach
Watching the sunrise for the first time
I'm in a trance
From that one slowdance.

    General CommentA very good little song about, what seems to me, your typical middle school dance. It brought back some memories, but nothing too special. I think Jawbreaker writes better love songs.

    General CommentTo all of you who like have conversations here...it's annoying, save it for IM if you want to comment on a band go for it but shut up about hook!!! And this song is awesome, to people like "Greenday Rule" OK, it really pisses me off when people come on here and judge songs like their some kind of reviewer, like only their opinion matters and after its said any debate is settled. Just shut up. I love this song, the lyrics, the music the whole, maybe it is middle school-ish sounding but i still love it.
    Love Always,

    General CommentPunk e, your really starting to annoy me, if your gonna talk like that, do it on the lyrics for a rap song, not a friggin punk song.
