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)

Robyn B.

​@Max Taf Definitely. Loved Calum's version, so when I found out that it was a cover I had to find the original song. And you're totally right, Max. It's like they are two different songs(with the same lyrics). Great singers can do that. It's just unfortunate that I had never heard of this , considering.. (points left)

To me, Robyn's version like is screaming silently at her ex.

She's saying, "You need me, you dumb twit, you're just too blind to see it! Stop! What your doing right now is driving a dagger through our heart. ...fine, whatever, I'm out of here."

I didn't understand the quasi-fighting moves (does she really want to beat up the ex?) and the '80s getup (Those were my teenage years. I look back at my old pictures and shudder at the visual, even if it's nice to remember when my body was young and nimble. :) and I think that's what kept me from relating to Robyn's version.

Calum's version is more internal sadness over the relationship that (on his side) is on life support.

I like Calum's better, but that's just because for me it hits home: I've had a fantastic relationship that died a slow, quiet death.
His version brought an old 'film' that had been shelved in my head to one of the first year or so with his new partner. See them happy like we once were, my ex with our children having fun, a great family picture - but it's not me by their side. I'm standing at the door to a house I don't live in. At that moment it just all gelled for me.

The loss.
The aching want.
Wishing and remembering.
That hope dying as I watched them together.
They were happy. Our kids were happy. The wedding was soon.
Our time had passed. The music had faded. WE were no more, and never would be again.

So yeah, Calum's version really resonated for me.

TMI: They have now been married for 12 years(I think)? He has always been a wonderful parent. We don't really talk any more as our children are 24+ and we live in different cities. If there are problems I talk to his wife.
