Standing on the wall
I watch them all go by
And all I do is stare
As my eyes keep wandering
I just stare theough them all
Dancing all theough the night
Many a happy pair
And I am wondering why...

Why am I even here?
What is the purpose of my whole existence?
I'll take no chance
I don't dance
I stand against the wall of resistance

So I stand and watch my whole life before me
I watch my life slipping away
As I watch them dance away
Let the music play
And they dance
When it's fast they burn the floor
Can this last?
I can't take it anymore
And still they dance
When it's slow, they could their lovers so close
And I know
This is how the story goes
And so I stand
Watching and waiting
For someone to take my hand
To let me have this dance
To call them my own
But for now I only stand alone

Standing on the wall
Watching my life go by
I wish someone could see
I just want someone who loves me
But I am far too shy
I so desperately
Need someone who loves me

Why do I stand alone?
What is the purpose of the life I'm wasting?
I won't take the chance
But I want to dance
Even though my heart's forsaking me

So I stand and watch my whole life before me
I watch my life slipping away
As I watch them dance away
Let the music play
And they dance
When it's fast they burn the floor
Can this last?
I can't take it anymore
And still they dance
When it's slow, they could their lovers so close
And I know
This is how the story goes
And so I satnd
Watching and waiting
For someone to take my hand
To let me have this dance
To call them my own
But for now I only stand alone

And then you come along
Offer me your hand
My hesitation's gone
And you offer me this dance

And then there's nobody here
It's like there's no one else in existence
I take the chance
I join the dance
And leave the wall of my resistence

So I go and live the life before me
All my worries drift away
And then we go dance away
Let the music play!
And we dance
When it's fast we burn the floor
Will it last?
I don't care anymore
And still we dance
When it's slow, we hold each other so close
And I know
This is how the story goes
And so we dance
My heart is pounding
Take me by the hand
Let me have this dance
To call you my own
From now on I don't have to be alone
