Song Description

A man reflects on the night before, when he succumbed to the attention of his woman's old friend

Lyrics

Nobody Danced

Chorus
Wide-eyed awake near dawn in bed
Just home I toss and turn instead
Of drifting into sleep I need for sure
I took my sweetheart to the dance
A heart so sweet that half a chance
I'd sweep her off her feet forever more
Verse 1
About to step the terrace floor
That danced upon a moonlit shore
Along the beach we?d spent our growing years
She stopped to greet an old school friend
Who rocked alone in role pretend
As if nobody danced these days in pairs
Just like nobody danced these days in pairs

We walked a threesome on the sand
Not quite the scene that I had planned
To sweep her off her feet forever more
For as we walked her old school friend
Pressed hard my hand no play pretend
And whispered through the waves that broke the shore
Words hidden in the waves that broke the shore
Chorus
Wide-eyed awake near dawn in bed
Just home I toss and turn instead
Of drifting into sleep I need for sure
I took my sweetheart to the dance
A heart so sweet that half a chance
I'd sweep her off her feet forever more

Verse 2
Her friend in cool nerve walked my hand
Whispering words I hadn't planned
On hearing through the waves from her tonight
Then suddenly my paled sweetheart
In faintness bid a quick depart
Imploring me to stay in the moonlight
Enjoy the magic of the blue moonlight

That's when her old friend kissed my lips
And pulled me tight against her hips
Caressing me in concert with the tide
That lapped about our sandy feet
This school friend we had stopped to greet
Took love from me that would not be denied
Her power of passion could not be denied

Chorus
So now wide-eyed awake in bed
Just home I toss and turn instead
Of drifting into sleep I need for sure
I took my sweetheart to the dance
A heart so sweet that half a chance
I'd sweep her off her feet forever more
Reprise
She stopped to greet an old school friend
Who danced alone in role pretend
Stopped to greet an old school friend
Who danced alone in role pretend
Don't stop to greet an old school friend
Who'd dance alone no play pretend
Just like nobody danced these days in pairs

Just like nobody danced these days in pairs
Nobody danced
Nobody danced
Nobody danced
