I feel so unsure,
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor.
As the music dies...
Something in your eyes,
Calls to mind a silver screen,
And all it's sad goodbyes.

I'm never gonna dance again,
These guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.
I should've known better than to cheat a friend,
And waste a chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.

Time can never mend,
The careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind,
Ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth,
Pain is all you'll find.

I'm never gonna dance again,
These guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.
I should've known better than to cheat a friend,
And waste a chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.

Oh ohh

Tonight the music seems so loud,
I wish that we could lose the crowd.
Maybe it's better this way,
We'd hurt each other with the things we wanna to say.

We could have been so good together,
We could have lived this dance forever...
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay.

I'm never gonna dance again,
These guilty feet have got no rhythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
I know you're not a fool.
I should've known better than to cheat a friend,
And waste a chance that I'd been given.
So I'm never gonna dance again,
The way I danced with you.
Ohh oh

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh

    I think the story is he meets a girl that he falls head over heels for. He knows that he is not really a good boyfriend and doesn't want to hurt her but he goes for it anyway. He ends up cheating on her and her friend tells her about it (careless whispers). then he sees in her eyes one night that she knows and he HAS in fact hurt her. After this he notices that he was an idiot and he really loved her and he is nothing without her. He will never "dance" or have that kind of love with another person ever. so he thinks about going after her agian but he fears that she will hate him and say things to hurt him, and then he reflects and feels stupid for cheating and thought they could have been perfect together, and wonders if his mistake was really a fatal flaw.

    the "dance" he's referring to symbolizes a relationship. the line "guilty feet have got no rhythm" indicates that he did something to screw the relationship up. and when he says "i'm never gonna dance again the way i danced with you" he's saying he's never going to have a relationship like that again.
