a black cloud's hanging over town tonight
but i don't mind
i don't mind
there's a cold breeze cutting through the summer air
but i'm not scared
i don't care
'cause we dance the night away
let's dance the night away, yeah!

the black cloud's whispering into my ear
but i don't hear
i won't hear
'cause the arms that hold me want an eye to eye
he's touching me
and i don't mind
as we dance the night away
let's dance the night away

oh yeah!
the music wants me tonight
what time will you let me down
i look pretty good tonight
oh yeah!
little black cloud
little black cloud
i don't wanna go home

the black cloud's circling over me tonight
but i don'tmind
and you don't mind
if you're cold i'll tell you it's the summer breeze
just dance with me
we'll be alright

oh yeah!
the music wants me tonight
what time will you let me down
i look pretty great tonight
oh yeah!
little black cloud
little black cloud
i'm not done yet

hey, look at me!
the music wants me tonight
what time will you let me down
i look really great tonight
oh yeah!
little black cloud
little black cloud
i don't wanna go home
i'm not done yet
i'm not done yet

    General CommentI think it is about someone with a terminal illness who wants to live in the moment. The illness is the "little black cloud". "I'm not done yet!"
