about

In the very beginning after things fell apart, life was a rapid dizzying combination of alcohol, dating, rampaging, sexuality, dancing, fun, and always taking things too far. Everything was an adventure and everything had beauty in it and everything ended badly. This song is about those moments as they happened.

lyrics

Lets dance, dance, dance, dance the pain away

Drink, touch, kiss me, love it’s okay

Cause when the morning comes we can walk away

But tonight we can move, we can touch, we can dance, dance, dance

Cause I have gained my freedom but I’ve lost my home

I am bleeding, I am drinking, I am sleeping alone

And now I’m falling towards a future that’s completely unknown

I’ll end up face down in the gutters if I drink here alone

So lets dance, dance, dance, dance the pain away

Drink, touch, kiss me, love it’s okay

Cause when the morning comes we can walk away

But tonight we can move, we can touch, we can dance, dance, dance

Because tonight I’m filled with fire, don’t you feel the same?

I have a tendency to crush on every girl within range

But you cannot have my heart for it’s now made of stone

But wouldn’t you rather dance with me than be out dancing alone?

Lets dance, dance, dance, dance the pain away

Drink, touch, kiss me, love it’s okay

Cause when the morning comes we can walk away

But tonight we can move, we can touch, we can dance, dance, dance

Oh girl I know you have a boyfriend but you know he’s all wrong

He’s controlling, he’s an asshole, and you don’t get along

There’s you and I and there’s this bottle and it’s playing our song

So spend the night out here with me cause this is where we belong

Lets dance, dance, dance, dance the pain away

Drink, touch, kiss me, love it’s okay

Cause when the morning comes we can walk away

But tonight we can move, we can touch, we can dance, dance, dance

David T8tz has always used music as a way to cope with sadness. From his first heartbreak at 12 years old, he was writing and performing his own songs. He never thought this skill set learned at at such a young age would become so necessary for survival later in life.

(Previously David was the frontman for Winston and the Telescreen.)
