"Dancing in the Dark" as written by Solange Knowles, Marcello Grasso, Chris Thomas, Steve Sanz and Heinz Kiessling....
I feel walking diving in tears
Water my roses with sweet liquor
Be a stranger to fears

But see I only wanted to be, be your girl
To love you in the ways you never know
But you can't love me, No you can't love
If you don't even love yourself
Oh I still wanna be there
But I got more enough in reasons
To see this ain't our season
I should be leavin'
Oh these leaves dancing in the dark

But you got my heart (heart)
And I don't want us to part baby
You're sweeter than spring
Nobody's ever been more
I know you'd give me the shirt off of your shoulders
You'd give me the world Ooh

But see I only wanted to be your woman
To give you all the things I know I can
But you can't know me, no you can't know me
If you don't even know yourself
Oh I still wanna be there
But I got more enough in reasons
To see this ain't our season
I should be leavin'
Oh these leaves dancing in the dark

But somehow you got my heart
And these leave I want 'em to fall
And these leaves I can't shake 'em off
With these leaves I can't leave at all at all

And I should be dancing, baby dancing (oh)
And I should be dancing, baby dancing
Yeah I should be grooving, baby grooving
Yeah I should be moving on my own

But you got my heart
And I don't want us to part baby No

We keep on blooming
You plant a smile everyday
Oh, but I could be swimming in the dead end
'Cause I know you're ways (oh)

But see I only wanted to be, be your girl
To show you all the things you've never known
But you can't love me
No you can't love me
If you don't even love yourself
Oh I still wanna be there
But I got more enough in reasons
To see this ain't our season
I should be leavin'
These leaves dancing in the dark

But somehow you got my heart, oh baby
Oh darling, come on baby
And I should be dancing, baby dancing (I should be dancing baby, oh)
And I should be dancing, baby dancing
Yeah I should be grooving, baby grooving
Yeah I should be moving on my own

    General CommentI feel like walking; diving in tears
    Water my roses with sweet liquor, be a stranger to fears
    ( she is heart broken because he is being cautious about the relationship or getting into a relationship with her)

    Ooh, see I only wanted to be, be your girl;
    To love you in the ways you've never known
    But you can't love me, no, you can't love me
    If you don't even love yourself...
    ( He needs to trust himself to fall in love before he can even start to give her the hopes that she can put her guard down and she thinks she could see herself falling in love with him)

    Oh, I still wanna be there,
    But I've got more enough in reasons
    To see this ain't our season
    ( he keeps sending her vibes/signals that things aren't going to progress but she's already invested herself where she feels like she's willing to talk about why things aren't moving along when they've already reached a certain point)
    I should be leaving;
    Oh, these leaves dancing in the dark
    ( dancing in the dark is not knowing where they stand but still going on and everything seeming happy and the same)

    But you've got my heart...
    And I don't want us apart, baby
    No, no...

    You're sweeter than the spring
    Nobody's ever been more
    I know you'd give me the shirt off of your shoulders, you'd give me the world
    (he's capable of really making her happy)

    Ooh, but I only wanted to be your woman
    To give you all the things I know I can
    But you can't know me, no, you can't know me
    If you don't even know yourself
    (she wants to take the relationship to the next level but he's not on the same page)

    Oh, I still wanna be there,
    But I've got more enough in reasons
    To see this ain't our season
    I should be leaving;
    Oh, these leaves dancing in the dark

    But somehow you've got my heart
    These leaves, I want them to fall
    But these leaves, I can't shake 'em off
    (she wants to be done with it so she doesn't have to put up with his lack of commitment)
    With these leaves, I can't leave at all
    At all...
    (but she's already invested and she has hope)
    But I should be dancin' baby, dancin
    Yeah, I should be dancin' baby, dancin'
    Yeah, I should keep groovin' baby, groovin
    Yeah, I should keep groovin' on my own
    (she could be finding love somewhere else)
    But you got my heart
    And I don't want us apart, baby
    No, no, oh oh...
    (she doesn't want to look elsewhere because she's confident in what they have)
    We keep on blooming;
    You plant a smile everyday
    Oh, but I could be swimming in the dead end
    Cause I know your ways
    ( he is showing some sort of initiative but she's done with the same she wants to get in deeper)
    Oooh, but see I only wanted to be, be your girl
    To show you all the things you've never known
    But you can't love me
    No, you can't love me
    If you don't even love yourself
    (she wants to be exclusive and know he's in it for the long haul)
    Oh, I still wanna be there

    But I got more enough in reasons
    To see this ain't my season
    I should be leaving
    These leaves dancin' in the dark

    But somehow you've got my heart
    Oh, baby...
    Oh, darling...
    Oh, come on baby...
    But I should be dancin', baby, dancin
    Yeah, I should keep dancin', baby, dancin'
    Yeah, I should keep groovin', baby, groovin
    Yeah, I should keep groovin', on my own
