My eye's a camera
My feelings film
One hour to develop into my own newsreel
I tell you one thing you take it as the opposite
Don't keep me too long
I see no future in this
No future in this

We dance together you got me for tonight
Forget we ever made it in daylight
I only told you, you got it all mapped out
It's too much too soon
Let's dance just for tonight
Let's dance just for tonight

Your eyes they follow my every move
You make me nervous can't you see I'm not in love with you
I touch your label you take it as the opposite
I tried to tell you
I see no future in this
No future in this

We dance together you got me for tonight
Forget we ever made it in daylight
I only told you, you got it all mapped out
It's too much too soon
Let's dance just for tonight (x8)

We dance together you got me for tonight
Forget we ever made it in daylight
I only told you, you got it all mapped out
You got it all mapped out
You got it all mapped out

    General CommentIt's quite an obvious song lyrically- she wants to be in it for the long-haul, and, well, he wants something a little less serious.

    General CommentI'm not sure bout the whole long term short term stuff. I mean, lyrically, what I think they're tryin to say is that she's got it all mapped out, she's tryin to plan their relationship too far ahead. Hence the chorus, "We dance together you got me for tonight
    Forget we ever made it in daylight
    I only told you, you got it all mapped out
    It's too much too soon
    Let's dance just for tonight
    Let's dance just for tonight ". The part that shows what I'm tryin to say is " Forget we ever made it in daylight" and "It's too much too soon". And the name of the song kinda points out my view. Anyways, LOVE The Departure!!

    General Commenti LOVE the departure, yeah like you said quite straightforward lyrics, you got the meaning spot on "I see no future in this" and "can't you see i'm not in love with you" back it up.. great song!
