I'm Gonna Dance

I’m not gonna just sit around
Stuffing my face
With ice cream and cookies pretending that they will
Sugar coat the bitter tastes
No
I’m not gonna just mope around, with my head in my hands
I’m not gonna watch my
Tattered walls close in on me again
I’ll tell you what I’m going to do instead

I'm gonna let the drum beats drown out every
One of our so called picture perfect memories
I’m gonna let my soul breathe in the music once again
Thoughts of you aren't going to hold me back
I’m gonna spend some time with
A long lost friend
My very first lover my very first bliss
I’m gonna meet up with it and feel free
I’m gonna dance

You couldn't understand the way that I'm feeling
Now that I've realized
How wrong it was for me to let your being
Consume my life
I was determined
To make you mine
You never noticed
The heat the intensity the butterflies I
Felt every time that your brown eyes met mine

So
I’m gonna let the drum beats drown out every
One of our so called picture perfect memories
I’m gonna let my soul breathe in the music once again
Thoughts of you aren't going to hold me back
I’m gonna spend some time with
A long lost friend
My very first lover my very first bliss
I’m gonna meet up with it and feel free
I’m gonna dance

I used to wish that
I could share the
Dance floor with you
But now I fear that
Your presence would
Be a black hole
To suck in the magic and
Overtake the music
You would end up leaving me alone to lie and cry
For my own naivety
My playlist would be left a mystery

So I’m gonna dance
On my own, all alone, no more aching for you
I’m gonna dance
For myself, for my freedom
That last move was me saying adieu
I’m gonna dance
Yeah I’m gonna dance
For me and not you

I'm gonna let the drum beats drown out every
One of our so called picture perfect memories
I’m gonna let my soul breathe in the music once again
Thoughts of you aren't going to hold me back
I'm gonna spend some time with
A long lost friend
My very first lover my very first bliss
I’m gonna meet up with it and feel free
Yeah I’m gonna dance
I’m gonna…Dance!
