The Gaslight Anthem – We Came To Dance lyrics

We are the last of the jukebox Romeos,
We are romantics by the light of the fourway
Came to sing out a chorus, reinvent the good times
Bring'in it all back home again

[Chorus:]
Honey we came to dance with the girls with the stars in their eyes
Do the jump back jack stop and slide to the right
Never break their hearts, never make 'em cry, come on
Strike up the band, play a song that everybody knows
If I'm not your kind then don't tell a soul
I'm not the one who hates being alone, so come on

And in the sun-stabled arena
Of what's left or become of my America
I'm asking this dance, so come take my hand, come on

And in the sun-stabled arena
Of what's left or would become of my America
I'm asking this dance, so come take my hand, come on

[Chorus:]

And if they end it all by the end of tonight
If the big bomb drops down over this quiet Edison sky
We'll blow one last kiss to all the beautiful nights like this
Under the central Jersey sky

[Chorus:]

'Cause you ain't never had a night on the town
Like I could show you such a night on the town
And you ain't never had a song you could sing
Well it's a deep, dark night, and I hear you, I've been there
But these are the songs that we sing
Whoa-oh, these are the songs that we sing
You've never seen a two step (two-step)
Like when you seen it from your mama's house
When the kids flash like lightning to the very best dancers around
We learned from the very best dancers around
We learned from the very best dancers in town
Come take my hand
'Cause mama we came to dance
