Verse 1
He thought he'd leave this world alone
He'd walk his own road, on his own
And tell the ones he loved the most
His better off out on the coast
Verse 2
She's lived her life some 20 years
She's still surprised that she's still here
All those times so hard she fell
She saved that last dance for herself
Chorus
Dance all night, standing still
The night is young but it's never real
He's as old as he cares to feel
she's alone but it hurts so much to steal
But that night when the lights went down
He can't believe that it all worked out
He'd dance alone but it's her he couldn't live without
Verse 3
Some he's known and some she's forgot
Till he discovered all she's not
Dream a lifetime standing still
Of where she's gone and where he will
Verse 4
Ten years gone and he sits alone
She's inside with the music on
He hums the tune to his favorite song
He can hear her sing along
Chorus 2
Dance all night, standing still
The night is young but this time it's real
He's as young as he cares to feel
She's alone but it hurts so much to steal
But that night when the lights went down
He can't believe that it all worked out
He'd dance alone but it's her he couldn't live without
Verse 5
All the lines on the road disappear
He can't believe that she's still here
He tells the one that he loves the most
Let's take a trip down to the coast
Chorus 2
Dance all night, standing still
The night is young but this time it's real
He's as young as he cares to feel
She's alone but it hurts so much to steal
But that night when the lights went down
He can't believe that it all worked out
He'd dance alone but it's her he couldn't live without
