It's getting old, isn't it?
To love everyone else
More than you love yourself
It's an excuse, isn't it?
To be the tragic one
Strung out on Paxil pills

In the meantime
It's the same old dance
You danced on your own
The same old dance
That left you alone
Two more steps and you might fall
Could you maybe try
And stick this one out?

It's in your head, isn't it?
Bumping into yourself
Like you're in a house of mirrors
It's safe to say, isn't it?
You need to re-invent yourself
Even for just one day

In the meantime
It's the same old dance
You danced on your own
The same old dance
That left you alone
Two more steps and you might fall
So maybe try
And stick this one out
Or maybe try and stick this one out

Sometimes I'm in between
If it's time to reconvene

It's the same old dance
You danced on your own
The same old dance
That left you alone
Two more steps and you might fall
So maybe try
And stick this one out
Maybe try and stick this one out

    General CommentAt the time i think this song is just me. But maybe i'm wrong.
    So what is getting old? Maybe to fall in love all the time without any chance.

    You dance on your on, without your love and this is the same old dance. You never have luck.
    And this "dance" leave you alone. So it's in your head. What you were thinking about that other person you are in love with not exist. I mean you think totally the opposite what the reality is. And you try to figure out what is going on, you might fall, if you try to face the fact maybe you'll be disappointed.
    And this same old dance usually " left you alone" . It was only a shadow. Not reality.

    I dont know. This song means this to me right now.
