Dancing on My Own
Robyn Lyrics


Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?
It's a big black sky over my town
I know where you at, I bet she's around
Yeah, I know it's stupid
I just gotta see it for myself

I'm in the corner
Watching you kiss her
Oh oh oh
I'm right over here
Why can't you see me?
Oh oh oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home
Ooh ooh ooh
I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up, I'm so outta line
Stilettos on broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

I'm in the corner
Watching you kiss her
Oh oh oh
I'm right over here
Why can't you see me
Oh oh oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home
Ooh ooh ooh
I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

So far away, but still so near
(The lights go on, the music dies)
But you don't see me standing here
(I just came) to say goodbye

I'm in the corner
Watching you kiss her
Oh oh oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home
Ooh ooh ooh
I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

I'm in the corner watching you kiss her
Oh oh oh
I'm right over here
Why can't you see me
Oh oh oh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home
Ooh ooh ooh
I keep dancing on my own (I keep dancing on my own)

(I keep dancing on my own)

LYRICS:
[Verse 1]
Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?
There's a big, black sky over my town
I know where you at, I bet she's around

[Refrain]
Yeah, I know it's stupid, I just gotta see it for myself

[Chorus]
I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ooh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Ooh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own
(I keep dancing on my own)

[Verse 2]
I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up, I'm so outta line
Stilettos and broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

[Chorus]
I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ooh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Ooh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooh
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own
[Bridge]
So far away, but still so near
(The lights go on, the music dies)
But you don't see me standing here
(I just came to say goodbye)

[Chorus]
I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Ooh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own
I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, ohh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me? Ooh
I'm giving it my all
But I'm not the girl you're taking home, ooo
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

[Outro]
I keep dancing on my own

The reason why Robyn's version is the best, is because everyone else plays this song in the same heartbreak song format, sad and slow. This is like you are literally in the club seeing the person you love with someone else and your so alone in a crowd of people. The bridge just wants you to burst out the pain. That's the reason this is so good and personal. We have all been there.

Mark Ferraresi

This is basically an anthem for the TikTok meme where young women would cry while dancing after a breakup.

Leo Ralph Reyes Albornoz

She loves her girlfriend.

I live there.

Also, note that the complicated, polarized, mixed feeling in Robyn's version is heightened. Wanting to escape the feeling of heartbreak by drowning in music, yet the feeling is so strong that she need to let the pain out.
'I'm just gonna dance all night.
I'm all messed up, I'm so outta line.'
