"Dancing Alone" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
Nothing's gonna hold me back
It's Friday night
And I feel all right
Nobody's gonna bring me down
It's my life
And I'm doing fine
Don't you know I wanna play
So take me on a holiday
So here I am
Looking pretty for you
They come and go
So many faces it's no use
So I'm dancing alone
Dreaming solo
Cause your love's the one worth waiting for
It's just like heaven
Nobody's gonna break my heart
And hurt me like they did before
No one can even get that part
Not until I know it's deep
Can't you come and take me away
Take me to another place
So here I am
Looking pretty for you
They come and go
So many faces it's no use
So I'm dancing alone
Dreaming solo
Cause your love's the one worth waiting for
It's just like heaven
Can you hurry up
Can you feel my love
I'm burning up
I'm so hot
I'm so hot
I'm so hot
Dancing alone
Dreaming alone
So here I am
Looking pretty for you
They come and go
So many faces it's no use
So I'm dancing alone
Dreaming solo
Cause your love's the one worth waiting for
It's just like heaven

    General CommentI like this song because I can relate to it so much. I'm 15 & I've never had a boyfriend; while all my friends have. But since I've had my heartbroken by guys who I've had crushes on & I don't want that to happen again. I relate to this song because right now I'm not looking for a guy, I'm in no hurry to find the "perfect" guy or to open up myself to someone like that. I like the line, "You're the one worth waiting for." - Which I can relate to because I like the idea of staying a virgin until I know he's "the one" and I'm okay with waiting a couple years. I feel that everyone in this world is in too much of a hurry to fall in love & get married - when most marriages end within a couple years. This song shows that it's okay to wait, & that being alone isn't that bad.

    General Commentshe's waiting for that one perfect love. she has had a broken heart before but now she's going to protect it and when that right guy comes around she won't have to be so protective until then other guys just won't do. this is how i felt after my heart was broken. this song was put it to words for me.

    General Commentis about keeping your heart safe from the others, waiting for the perfect guy so you can't get a broken heart again. I just simply love Ashlee Simpson.
