I love this song, because it’s kind of happy and sexy, but it’s still so sad. Maybe it’s just because I listened to it around 5 times in the span of four hours, but, I liked it before that, too. Today, though, it was kind of perfect. Made me think of what I’m leaving behind and what’s ahead – and how, despite that, it’ll be alright.

You know, you love *somebody* not some*body*. Know the difference, and notice. Speak the truth, it’s the only part that counts.

“She ain’t lonely now
See her shuffle across the floor
Yeah, she’s happier now
See her smile and say “come on”

Let’s dance all night
Let’s dance all night
Dance all night
Yeah, I think she’ll be alright

I ain’t lonely now
Yeah, I got someone I love
Someone I think about
Someone for me to take care of

Dance all night
Dance all night
Dance all night
Yeah, I think I’ll be alright

She ain’t lonely now
See her shuffle across the floor
Yeah, she’s happier now
See her smile and say “come on”

Let’s dance all night
Let’s dance all night
Dance all night
I think she’ll be alright”
