Driving down the Hume Highway
Saying goodnight to my charade
It's far away
(It's far away)
Far from me
I danced beneath those velvet lights
Invisibly throughout the night
You don't know
(You didn't know)
Know where I'd been
But you don't dance!
Sometimes I catch a glance
A glance of me
(A glance of me)

Once when I was twelve years old
I won a trophy for my role
As Romeo
(As Romeo)
It was easy
Come home you're crashed on the couch
My collar's stained
Hair rearranged
Should let you know
(Should let you know)
Know about me
But you don't dance!
Sometimes I catch a glance
Just a glint just a spark
Oh you don't see me how my mind's eye see me, oh

Well it's like this
I truly am a terrible terrible terrible dancer
And I simply cannot bear to have a single person I know witness this vulgar barbaric display of unrestrained impetuosity
And so it is that I must rely
On the total kindness and discretion of total strangers
In crumbling nameless bars
At local band competitions
At returned serviceman's big band nights
It brightly lit halls
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
They let me go
(They let me go)
I gotta
(I gotta go)
I gotta leave you
