Roxy Music: Dance Away


Yesterday, when it seemed so cool,
When I walked you home, kiss goodnight,
I said "it's love", you said "alright".
Its funny how, I could never cry,
Until tonight, when you pass by,
Hand-in-Hand with another guy,
You're dressed to kill, and guess whos dying...

Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, tears.
Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, fears.
Dance away...

Loneliness, is a crowded room,
Full of open hearts, turned to stone.
All together, all alone.
All at once, my whole world had changed.
Now I'm in the dark, off the wall,
Lit the strobe light up the wall.
I close my eyes, and dance til dawn.

Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, tears.
Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, fears.
Dance away...
Dance away...
Dance away...

Now I know, I must walk the line
Until i find an open door,
Off the street or onto the floor.
There was I, many times a fool,
I hoped and prayed, but not too much,
Out of reach is out of touch,
All the way is far enough.

Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, tears.
Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, fears.
Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, tears.
Dance away the heartache,
Dance away, fears.

Wikipedia: Dance Away (song)
"Dance Away" is a song by the British rock band Roxy Music. Released in April 1979, it was the second single to be taken from their album Manifesto, and became one of the band's most famous songs, reaching number 2 in the UK and spending a total of 14 weeks on the charts, the longest chart residency of a Roxy Music single.

"Dance Away" was originally written by Bryan Ferry for his 1977 solo album In Your Mind, but did not make the final track listing. It was then planned for inclusion on his 1978 album The Bride Stripped Bare, but again was not included. It was finally completed and released on Roxy Music's Manifesto, the band's first studio album in four years.

Manifesto is the sixth studio album by Roxy Music, and was released in 1979 by E.G. in the UK, Polydor in Europe and by Atco Records in the U.S.

Roxy Music are an English art rock band formed in 1971 by Bryan Ferry, who became the group's lead vocalist and chief songwriter, and bassist Graham Simpson. The other members are Phil Manzanera (guitar), Andy Mackay (saxophone and oboe) and Paul Thompson (drums and percussion). Former members include Brian Eno (synthesizer and "treatments"), and Eddie Jobson (synthesizer and violin). Although the band took a break from group activities in 1976 and again in 1983, they reunited for a concert tour in 2001, and have toured together intermittently since that time.
