Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?
There's a big black sky over my town
I know where you're at, I bet she's around
Yeah I know it's stupid
I just gotta see it for myself

I'm in the corner,
Watching you kiss her, oh
I'm right over here
Why can't you see me, oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own

I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up, I'm so outta line
Stilettos on broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

I'm in the corner,
Watching you kiss her, oh
I'm right over here
Why can't you see me, oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own

So far away, still so near
The lights go off, the music dies
But you don't see me standing here
I just came to say goodbye

I'm in the corner
Watching you kiss her, oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own,
I keep dancing on my own

    Song MeaningShe loved this guy, but he turned away and fell for someone else. She trying her hardest to get him to see her love, but, in the end, she's not the girl he picked. He is so close, but yet so far from her. All she wants is for him to love her the way she loves him, but it won't happen.
