I feel so unsure,
as I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies, there's something in your eyes
Calls to mind the silver screen
and all its sad goodbyes

Im never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
[You know Im aint a fool, girl]

I shouldve known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I've been given
So, I'm never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you

Time can never mend
Ooh.
the careless whispers of a good friend
to the heart and mind
ignorance is kind
there's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find..

I'm never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm
though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
[You know I aint a fool, girl]

Should've known better than to cheat a friend
and waste this chance that I've been given
so I'm never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you

Uh, Slow down.
You know you're moving too fast,
you know that I dont dance, but
you insist to take my hands.
And to the beat, that move our feet,
and everyone is watching me
and I dont dance no more.

And I aint leavin' my apartment
'till its after evening.
Bars are closing down, and
every model in the pool hall is drinking.

I turn the jukebox on.
To play my favorite song.
Where we sing along.

I dont dance, no.

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Baby, it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things
We'd want to say

We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay!

I'm never gonna dance again
guilty feet have got no rhythm
though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool
[You know I aint a fool, girl]

Should've known better than to cheat a friend
and waste this chance that I've been given
so I'm never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you.

And now that you're gone.
And now that you're gone.
And now that you're gone.

    General CommentIn my opinion, I thought this song was going to be much better for the simple fact that Juliet Simms and All Time Low are in it..
    In all honesty, I didn't care for it at all.

    My InterpretationIt's about cheating. He treated on the girl who he actually cared about. She was his friend, his confident. However, he then cheats on her, and she catches him. So she leaves.
    "Should've known better than to cheat a friend
    and waste this chance that I've been given" - So, he cheats
    "We could have been so good together
    We could have lived this dance forever
    But now who's gonna dance with me?
    Please stay!" - She leaves him for it, and the gulty feet is that he has guilt over doing it.
