Dance The Night
Dua Lipa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Baby, you can find me under the lights
Diamonds under my eyes
Turn the rhythm up, don't you wanna just
Come along for the ride?
Ooh, my outfit so tight
You can see my heartbeat tonight
I can take the heat, baby, best believe
That's the moment I shine

'Cause every romance shakes and it bends
Don't give a damn
When the night's here, I don't do tears
Baby, no chance

I could dance, I could dance, I could dance

Watch me dance, dance the night away
My heart could be burnin', but you won't see it on my face
Watch me dance, dance the night away (uh-huh)
I'll still keep the party runnin', not one hair out of place

Lately, I've been movin' close to the edge
Still be lookin' my best
I stay on the beat, you can count on me
I ain't missin' no steps

'Cause every romance shakes and it bends
Don't give a damn
When the night's here, I don't do tears
Baby, no chance

I could dance, I could dance, I could dance

Watch me dance, dance the night away
My heart could be burnin', but you won't see it on my face
Watch me dance (dance), dance the night away (uh-huh)
I'll still keep the party runnin', not one hair out of place

When my heart breaks (they never see it, never see it)
When my world shakes (I feel alive, I feel alive)
I don't play it safe (ooh), don't you know about me? (Uh-huh)
I could dance, I could dance, I could dance

Even when the tears are flowin', they're diamonds on my face
I'll still keep the party goin', not one hair out of place (yes, I can)
Even when the tears are flowin', they're diamonds on my face (yes, I can, yes, I can)
I'll still keep the party goin', not one hair out of place

Watch me dance, dance the night away (uh-huh)
My heart could be burnin', but you won't see it on my face
Watch me (dance) dance, dance the night away (uh-huh)
I'll still keep the party runnin', not one hair out of place

When my heart breaks (they never see it, never see it)
When my world shakes (I feel alive, I feel alive)
I don't play it safe, don't you know about me? (Uh-huh)
I could dance, I could dance, I could dance

1:06 “My heart could be burning but you won’t see it on my face”

Damn this lyric really shows how in the introduction of the movie Barbie looked “normal” enjoying her perfect life when on the inside, she was just expierencing all these thoughts she’s never had before. And like she just masked it acting perfectly fine like she always was. And when Barbie did mention about dieing, everyone instantly was just suprised. Which made her have to “mask” herself more in a way. (If that makes sense)

And like this is what I love so much about this song. Dua Lipa is an icon and I love all her songs. I really think this song was a great way to start the movie (other than Lizzo’s song) but like the way I love it so much is because the happy and “exciting” tone of the song really masks the lyrics that just brush past you as you listen. Like, it’s kinda some slight foreshadowing that I really like.

More lyrics that “show this” ⬇️
2:54 “When my heart breaks, you’ll never see, you’ll never see”
0:52 “When the night’s here I don’t do tears”
1:19 “Latley I’ve been moving close to the edge, still looking my best”
2:19 “Even when the tears are flowing they’re diamonds on my face”

None less, the Barbie movie was amazing and definitely not what was I expecting (in a good way) and it really beat my expectations.

Anyways this was just me overanalzing this song and kinda the Barbie movie in general but like I just had to, I really liked this movie and I think it’s definitely a masterpiece for what it is considering it’s just a movie based off of a doll brand.


Anyways live laugh love Dua Lipa and go watch this movie
