"We Danced Together" as written by Matthew Swinnerton, Alan Donohoe, James Horn-smith and Lasse Petersen....
We danced together on the roof at the party,
5 stories removed from the trouble on the street
The sun arose revealing goose bumps on your arm
A sign that we should move together somewhere warm.

[Chorus]
We danced together [Repeat]

We moved to the street where they tried to hold curfew
And ran among the debris as the bullets flew.
Helicopters circled overhead to get a better view
We found a doorway, fell in and I held you.

[Chorus]

We didn't have no where to go
Waiting for the daylight to begin
Singer, save our secular souls
How can you have hope with no God?

We didn't give a shit about what they would say...
And stayed up until the light turned our world/eyes grey.
We caned our money like it was our last day
Two fingers up at those who wont miss us when we pass away

    General CommentAs far as I can tell, this song is about living in a police state, and being in part of the city where you shouldnt be (due to a curfew) with your partner. They realise that they will probably be killed soon, so they figure they might as well have a little dance where they cannot be seen. This song rules.

    General Commenti heard on the radio that this was about a couple in the iraq/lebanon war. the police state idea is fantastic and it works, but i think that the war idea just fits a bit better, especially with the second verse.
    either way, both ideas so far are pretty much ther same thing and they both mean this song is a beautiful, fearless love story as well as a fanbloodytastic song. love it

    General CommentI think the part labeled 'chorus extra 1' actually goes like this:

    We didn't have nowhere to go,
    Wait for the daylight to begin
    S-S-Save our secular souls
    How can you have hope with no goal?

    It really doesn't sound like God...
