lyrics

I never knew hearts
Could act’ally hurt.
I never knew loss
Could trigger the pain I feel.
You try to avoid.
You try to avert.
You try to convince yourself
That the pain’s not real.
I’ve tried to keep all my feelings at bay --
To put up a wall since you went away.
So why do I fall right back
Into missing you?

I don’t understand
Why you went away.
I don’t understand
What happened to change your mind.
But now you have thrown
Me back in the fray.
You took all my love
And left only pain behind . . .
It’s time for my heart to finally heal.
It’s time to take part in things that appeal.
It’s time that I start to try
And get over you . . .

I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna get out on the floor
And not dwell any more
On the pain of missing you.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing
To help get over you.

They tell you that wounds
Feel better with time.
They tell you your heart
Will heal when you just let go.
But how you broke up
With me was a crime.
And how someone gets
Beyond that I just don’t know.
I’m sick of regret and pain from the past.
I wanna forget those feelings at last.
I’ve gotta just let you go
And get over you . . .

I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna get lost in the noise.
Be surrounded by boys
Who aren’t anything like you.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna go dancing
Until I’m over you.

You said, “It’s all for the best.”
But tell the pain in my chest --
It doesn’t think that it’s true.
There’s no consoling a heart
That feels like tearing apart
Each time I start to remember you.
I tell myself to be strong --
To just keep moving along
While I regroup and rebuild.
But still, it feels like my soul
Has got this big, gaping hole
That may not ever be filled again.

Dancing.
I wanna go dancing.
I wanna get out of my brain
And escape from the pain
And move on -- find someone new . . .

I wanna go dancing.
I gotta go dancing.
I wanna get up and move on
‘Til the heartache is gone
And this agony is through.
I wanna go dancing.
I gotta go dancing.
I oughtta be dancing . . .

But I’m not over you.
