lyrics

I’ll pick up the shards of glass,
Clean the blood myself;
The pain won’t last,
My love.

There is nothing wrong with me:
I am not your plague,
I’m the vaccine,
My love.

And they all say they cannot dance with me;
I wasn’t made to follow anybody’s lead.
So, why should I learn the steps to your tango,
If in the end I’m left dancing on my own?

Nobody knows how to dance (x2) [My love, my love, my love don’t grow]
Nobody knows how to dance [My love, my love don’t grow]
With me.
Nobody knows how to dance (x2) [My love, my love, my love don’t grow]
Nobody knows how to dance [My love, my love don’t grow]
With me.

A potpourri of sand and wine
Won’t produce your roses,
No, not this time,
Not enough.

I’ve numbered bricks inside my heart,
To keep their place
If ever torn apart,
My love.

And they all say they cannot dance with me;
I wasn’t made to follow anybody’s lead.
So, why should I learn the steps to your tango,
If in the end I’m left dancing on my own?

Nobody knows how to dance (x2) [My love, my love, my love don’t grow]
Nobody knows how to dance [My love, my love don’t grow]
With me.
Nobody knows how to dance (x2) [My love, my love, my love don’t grow]
Nobody knows how to dance [My love, my love don’t grow]
With me.
Nobody knows how to dance (x2)
Nobody knows how to dance
With me.

Oh, we were all good kids surely,
We just lost our need to make believe.
Oh, we were smart kids before we
Gave up our freedom for a degree.

What is done can’t be undone:
You still smell smoke living out on the run.
So why not play Russian Roulette?
There’s nothing left to lose by learning my weird step.

And ooo, they say they cannot dance with me,
But oh, the things they’d learn if only they’d let me lead.
But who will dare to abandon what they know?
‘Cause nobody knows how to dance with me, uh-oh.
