Stolen Dance
Milky Chance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I want you by my side
So that I never feel alone again
They've always been so kind
But now they've brought you away from here
I hope they didn't get your mind
Your heart is too strong anyway
We need to fetch back the time
They have stolen from us

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it

Shouldn't talk about it

Coldest winter for me
No sun is shining anymore
The only thing I feel is pain
Caused by absence of you
Suspense controlling my mind
I cannot find the way out of here

I want you by my side
So that I never feel alone again

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it
Shouldn't talk about it

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it

And I want you
We can bring it on the floor
You've never danced like this before
We don't talk about it
Dancin' on do the boogie all night long




Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it
Shouldn't talk about it

Overall Meaning

The lyrics above show someone expressing their desire not to be alone anymore and wanting the person they care about by their side. They acknowledge that the person they care about is no longer around because someone took them away, possibly against their will. The singer hopes that their mind wasn't changed and that their heart is still strong. They describe feeling pain and suspense controlling their mind, possibly stemming from the loss of this person. They want to bring the person they care about to the dance floor as a way to escape their pain for a moment, but they know they can't talk about it openly. The lyrics suggest that they are in a place of "paradise", yet they cannot be open about their feelings, for some reason.


The song seems to be telling a story of two people who were separated by some external force, whether it be physical or societal. The singer longs to be reunited with their loved one but cannot express themselves openly. Instead, they use dancing and music as a way to escape their pain, but they know that it is only temporary. While the lyrics revolve around themes of love, separation, and escapism, they also touch on the idea of societal pressure and the need to keep certain feelings hidden.


Line by Line Meaning

I want you by my side
I need you to be with me


So that I never feel alone again
So I can feel less lonely and lost


They've always been so kind
People have always treated me well


But now they've brought you away from here
But they have taken you away from me


I hope they didn't get your mind
I hope they didn't change your thoughts or feelings


Your heart is too strong anyway
But your heart is too resilient to be broken


We need to fetch back the time
We need to reclaim the time we've lost


They have stolen from us
That has been stolen from us by others


And I want you
I still want you by my side


We can bring it on the floor
We can dance together


You've never danced like this before
You've never danced this way with me


We don't talk about it
We don't need to vocalize our feelings


Dancin' on do the boogie all night long
We should dance all night


Stoned in paradise, shouldn't talk about it
Enjoying ourselves without overthinking it


Coldest winter for me
It's been a tough and depressing time for me


No sun is shining anymore
I can't see any hope or joy


The only thing I feel is pain
The only emotion I'm experiencing is pain


Caused by absence of you
That pain is caused by you not being with me


Suspense controlling my mind
I'm anxious and scared of what's to come


I cannot find the way out of here
I feel trapped and lost


Shouldn't talk about it
We shouldn't overanalyze our feelings or situation

@tobe_said_no8327

He caused a "Riot"

He said that people should "Look At Me"

But after the tragedy of "Jocelyn Flores"

He made "changes"

He wanted to "Take a Step Back" from music but returned

He used to say "Fuck love", but then he changed his mind

He wanted everyone to have "Hope"

He knew people went through "Depression & Obsession"

He wanted "Revenge" against death, which took his friend away

But he never got it, in reality all he actually wanted was "The Remedy for a broken heart"

He wanted to raise awareness for horrible causes, because if he didn't the awareness would be "Going Down"

He wanted people to be happy because he knew that "Everyone Dies in Their Nightmares", so he wanted people to have happy dreams instead

He wanted everyone to sleep peacefully under the "Moonlight"

But now he is gone

And we all feel "SAD"

We also feel "BAD" because we underestimated him

He wanted to "Save me" and everyone else

Now he is our "Guardian angel"

Thank you XXXTentacion, you made me and millions of others happy. R.I.P X
