Dance with me baby, let me hear your voice
Oh if I didn’t wanna fall for you I never had a choice
Smear the makeup on my face
run your fingers through my hair
I can not keep my heart from you and I don’t even care
Yeah, you turn me inside out
You make me shake and I can’t stop
You give new meaning to drop dead gorgeous
And I’m about to drop

You are a song to me
And every note of every chord will set me free
There’s no time before you came alone
Three cheers for the end of twenty one years
Nothing else is going wrong

Reverberate and complicate my evenings and my days
And I will only love you more
I will count the ways
Dance with me and when you see my pulse beneath my skin
It’s racing now, I don’t know how to hold the burning in
You’ve taken from me my defenses
My will is under attack
And baby when I wrap my arms around you
I feel the bones in your back

Oh yeah, your voice is like music
It’s music to my ears
I’m not dying anymore, I’m alive baby!

    General CommentI'm sorry...but I definately don't think it's about jesus. when's the last time you called jesus "baby"? that's kinda weird...."dance with me, baby?" "run your fingers through my hair?" smear the make-up on my face" no. don't think so.

    if it is about jesus, I think it's kinda disrespectful....

    Eh, maybe, but throwing up seems to be a running theme throughout the album, and vommiting is mentioned in most of the songs. I think it's just adding to that, rather than referencing an eating disorder. But, you never know. It might be about that, too.

    General Commentok it's not about a girl, it's about jesus


    "Yeah, you turn me inside out"
    josh is saying how jesus changed him

    "You give new meaning to drop dead gorgeous"
    saying how Jesus is so beautiful

    "Oh yeah, your voice is like music
    It’s music to my ears
    I’m not dying anymore, I’m alive baby!"
    he's not dying anymore because he has Jesus' music in his heart

    those are a few of the main points
    and josh said something about the throwing up thing had something to do with rejecting sin.

    General Commentactually....im pretty sure its not about Jesus....cause its all like 'run your fingers through my hair' and 'baby when i wrap my arms around you feel the bones in your back'
    somehow i dont see them sayin that to Jesus--the lines you picked do make an interesting point though...'turned me inside out' particularly, but i think he's singin this to a girl

    General Commentyes but he write very metaphoric songs,
    i look on it as like he singing for jesus to come right up to him and like embrace him or something like that,
    like "baby when i wrap my arms around you feel the bones in your back" could be like when he's really close to God he can like really feeel it or something

    General CommentI can definetly see how this song is refering to Jesus.
    but I can also see how it isn't.

    I mean, saying dance with me doesn't necessarily mean anything disrespectul. When dancing, someone usually leads.. so it could be like lead me.. like the saying life is a dance. I don't know.

    I can not keep my heart from you and I don’t even care
    and that he always knows whats in your heart.
