"We Danced Anyway" as written by Matraca Maria Berg and Randy Scruggs....
The summer air was heavy and sweet
You and I on a crowded street
There was music everywhere, I can see us there
In a happy little foreign town
Where the stars hung upside down
A half a world away, far far away
I remember you were laughung
We were so in love, we were so in love

And the band played songs we'd never heard
But we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang oh la la la la la la la oh
And we danced anyway

They say you can't go back, baby I don't believe that
Come along with me, come on and dance with me
Maybe if I hold you close
Baby we could just let go
Of these things that tie us down, we'll come back around
Do you remember we were laughing
We were so in love, we were so in love

And the band played songs we'd never heard
But we danced anyway
We never understood the words
We just sang oh la la la la la la la la la oh
And we danced anyway

    General CommentI don't think that has anything to do with it gogirl. I think its a simple love song, and the giddy feeling that love creates that might allow people to sing to songs they don't understand etc.

    General CommentI really love this song. It's about loving someone so much that you hardly notice anything around you. All that matters is that one person.

    General CommentI think its mmaaybbe about being away with someone you love, and it doesnt really matter what goes on or what you do, because what it all comes down to is that your with the person and it'll be fun no matter what

    General CommentThis song means everything that is good about true love. She wrote this when she got married and the guy in the video is actually her husband. They honey mooned in Spain that's why the stars hung upside down...they were half a world away.

    'And the bands played songs that we had never heard but we danced anyway' talks about how they didn't understand much of the language or what was going on but they still danced and had a good time.

    General CommentI think Wolfie is right-on. However, it could just as easily be infatuation as love.
