dance with me lyrics – old 97’s

underneath the foreign stars
in a foreign place where they don’t love you, i do care
in the pale moonlight your eyes are wide
and the band plays, everybody wants you

and he takes your hand tenderly
and he whispers sweet surrender, nothing
how he feels about girls like you. your flip flop smiles
and your big blue eyes on vacation

dance with me into the ocean
roll with me into the sea
don’t tell me the world is in trouble
do you want to dance with me?

go, changes hands as the big waves
crash and dream don’t die, but i do
where were you when i needed you right now
the telephone just rings, i’m gonna find you

dance with me, into the ocean
roll with me, into the sea
don’t tell me the world is in trouble
do you want to dance with me, oh
do you want to dance with me?

underneath the foreign sun
with a foreign man who is gone and almost forgotten
take everything you see
and remember us and wonder if you will be forgiven

dance with me, into the ocean
roll with me, into the sea
don’t tell me the world is in trouble
don’t tell me the world is in trouble

dance with me, into the ocean
roll with me, into the sea
don’t tell me the world is in trouble
do you want to dance with me?
do you want to dance with me, oh?
do you want to dance with me?
