"Don't Stop Dancing" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
At times life is wicked and I just can't
See the light
A silver lining sometimes isn't enough
To make some wrongs seem right
Whatever life brings
I've been through everything
And now I'm on my knees again

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many
Feel this way

Children don't stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away, away

At times life's unfair and you know
It's plain to see
Hey God I know I'm just a dot in this world
Have you forgot about me?
Whatever life brings
I've been through everything
And now I'm on my knees again

But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many
Feel this way

Children don't stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away, away

Am I hiding in the shadows?
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows
Am I hiding in the shadows?
Forget the pain and forget the sorrows
But I know I must go on
Although I hurt I must be strong
Because inside I know that many feel this way

Children don't stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away, away

Children don't stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away, away

Children don't stop dancing
Believe you can fly
Away, away

Am I hiding in the shadows?
Are we hiding in the shadows?

    General CommentI think he's saying about how when kids dance so free and light and don't care whos watching, thats how we should dance, and he's telling the kids to not stop if their still able to. 'Am I hiding in the shadows?' I think means is he hiding his true self from the world. And he feels like he wants to dance free again.

    General CommentScott's sister, Amy Stapp does the background vocals in this song. This is a very good song that really is telling kids that they can be whatever they want to be; they can "spread their wings and fly" in this world

    General Commenti think this song is one of their bests. i'd like to point out that 'believe we can fly' is 'believe you can fly' :)

    General Commenta few months ago i had a friend that died in a car accident... and a little bit after that, i listened to this song for the first time. ever since it has reminded me of her. even when things are bad, you can't just stop being free and being happy... i know it may not be the most common view of the song, but i can't shake how it reminds me of her whenever i hear it. i like it... makes me feel like, it's all right that she's gone. i've just gotta keep doing my thing and remember her, but not let go of my own innocence because something tragic happened... do i make any sense?

    General CommentCool song! I have no idea why it appeals to me so much. I just really enjoy it. Especially the parts where his wife has the small part singing. Great! Thanks.

    General CommentThis song is about disco.

    This is evident in the line "A silver lining sometimes isn't enough"-refering to the glimmer of the disco ball

    "Children don't stop dancing"-refering to when disco no longer became cool

    "Hey God I know I'm just a dot in this world
    Have you forgot about me?"-this is Scott wondering why disco is no longer cool

    "Am I hiding in the shadows?"-this refers to Scotts inability to dance after an injury left him on the sidelines

    This song always makes me cry especially when it comes to the line "Believe we can fly"-which is a reference to Barry Gibb and the non sexual crush he had on him.

    DISCO ROCKS

    SCOTT ROCKS!

    GO!!!!!!

    General CommentThis is song is amazing. It is one of the most importatn songs to me. One of my old friends is a huge Creed fan and so am I. We listened to this song when we became friends again. We had a weird friendship and always seemed to be friends at the end. We aren't friends anymore, which is my choice but I think of im each time I listen to tihs song.
