Dancing Away with My Heart
Written by Dave Haywood, Josh Kear, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott

I finally asked you to dance
On the last slow song
And beneath the moon that was really a disco ball
I can still feel my head on your shoulder
Hoping that song would never be over

I haven't seen you in ages
Sometimes I find myself
Wondering where you are
For me you'll always be 18
And beautiful and dancing away with my heart

I brushed your curls back so I could see your eyes
And the way you moved me was like you were in my mind
I can still feel you lean into kiss me
I can't help but wonder if you ever miss me

Repeat chorus

Oh you headed out to college
At the end of that summer when we lost touch
I guess I didn't realize even at that moment we lost so much

Repeat chorus

Nah nah nah(repeat 3x)

Away with My Heart

Nah nah nah(repeat 3x)

    Don't ever regret anything you do. Live and love with all of your heart, don't ever look back. Don't ever give up.

    Luke, he goes to my church/youthgroup. I dont know how to tell him how much he means to me, how he affects me. After reading everyones comments i feel encouraged. Thank you. God bless. Have a great day.

    Don't be afraid to tell your special someone what they mean to you. You may not get another chance. Embrace life. Live it while you got it.

    It reminds me of my first love, and first everything. He still has my heart from when i was 15. We loose touch, and i think does he miss me as much as i miss him. I have never felt this way with my heart with anyone else so i know its true love 4 me. I just told him to listen to this song everytime i hear it i think of artie

    Brings back memories of when i was 19 he was 18 it was 1972. He went away to war. He was so innocent so loving. So glad i never found his name upon the "wall"
