Lyrics

Come on dance with me right now
Right here in your merciful kitchen
Let all the sorrow disappear
While our feet go missing

Under your soft Christmas lights
No one could ever reap what they sow
My dance moves are said to be a delight
As long as we keep it slow

You’re always on my mind
I can’t leave you behind
Make me want to stick around and find
If there’s an answer

Don’t know how I got so broken
If you wanna leave, what can I say
Sing a hymn for things left unspoken
A song called "Dance the Night Away"

You’re always on my mind
I can’t leave you behind
You make me want to stay and find
If there’s an answer

And all the love that I’ve known
All the love that I’ve been shown
Picks me up and drags me home
Tries and tries and tries and tries to tell me I’m not alone I’m not alone

And you’re always on my mind
I can’t leave you behind
Make me wanna stick around and find
If there’s an answer

You’re always on my mind
I can’t leave you behind
You make me wanna stick around and find
If there’s an answer
