Leo Sayer – Dancing The Night Away lyrics

Writers: Russell Smith & James Brown

Standing beside of the ocean
Looking out across the water
Everything is beautiful
But I still don't feel like I oughta

Things we wanted, not so long ago
I got 'em all now, babe
But I ain't got you no more

Still I remember
The way you held me
And all the sweet things you used to say
When we were two young lovers
Dancing the night away

I remember everything
Dresses you used to wear
You were so light and graceful
You seem to float right through the air

Me I looked so funny dancing
But you loved me anyhow
Now I wish I could find somebody
To love me like that now

Still I remember
The way you held me
And all the sweet things you used to say
When we were two young lovers
Dancing the night away

Standing beside of the ocean
Looking out across the bay
I should look for companionship
But it just gets in my way

All the lights are flickering
Out along the shore
I see people dancing there
But I just don't dance no more

Still I remember
The way you held me
And all the sweet things you used to say
When we were two young lovers
Dancing the night away

Let me see you dance
Let me see you dance
Oh, babe, let me see you dance
I can still see you dance
I remember you dancing
Oh, babe, let me see you dance
