"Dancer In The Dark" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Fate lies ahead
Like the sun will rise
The light has been gone
Far to long from your eyes

But you never changed
Never played your part
And you have erased
All the fear from your heart

And tried to forget
The light in your eyes is fading out
Nights falling deeper in the heart
Hiding the truth and crashing down
My baby's a dancer in the dark

You've seen it all
You don't mind going blind
You've seen it all
All the wonders of life

Run to your boy
Don't conceal your scars
Run to your boy
And let him feel your love

Before it's too late
The light in your eyes keeps fading out
Nights falling deeper in the heart
Hiding the truth and crashing down
My baby's a dancer in the dark

Your sight is dying but you keep on trying to save your boy
You keep on lying but your false illusions will be destroyed

You heard it calling, but you turned your face, never played your part
You heard it singing, but you danced away like a falling star

Dancer in the dark
Dancer in the dark
Dancer in the dark
Dancer in the dark

    General CommentLauri wrote the lyrics based on the movie "Dancer In The Dark" starring Björk. It tells some of the story, and very well I might add!
    Beautiful song; beautiful movie.

    General Commentwhen he says" My baby's a dancer in the dark" i think it's because of Lauri's huge crush on Björk.

    General CommentThe movie was real nice. Yea, I heard he has a crush on her too. He's got a tatoo of her on his arm. This song is good. It wouldn't have a place in the movie but its still good.

    General CommentIt's no secret that Lauri admires Bjork, and Dancer in the Dark was one of Lauri's favorite movies... so it's really no surprise he made a song with the same title.
    I agree with cozsheep; the movie and song is beautiful <3
