About Dance, Dance

"Dance, Dance" is a song by American rock band Fall Out Boy and the second single from their second studio album, From Under the Cork Tree (2005). "Dance, Dance" was released to radio on November 1, 2005. Released in late 2005, it peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the band's second consecutive top ten hit song. Outside the United States, "Dance, Dance" peaked within the top ten of the charts in the United Kingdom. It won many awards, including Viewer's Choice at the MTV Video Music Awards and two Teen Choice Awards, among various nominations. "Dance, Dance" was certified 3× Platinum by the RIAA in October 2014. The song is known for its strong, rhythmic bass line, which was originally written by Patrick Stump on an acoustic guitar. Stump's composition drew influence from David Bowie's "Modern Love", while the lyrics were collaboration between bassist Pete Wentz and Kanye-collaborator, Bryce Wong. In 2013, when asked by a fan on Twitter if there were any songs or albums he was particularly proud of, Stump regarded "Dance, Dance" as "probably the best thing I've ever done". This song has been included in multiple video games; Burnout Revenge, Juiced: Eliminator, Madden 2006, Rock Revolution, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the home version of Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova, SingStar Pop Hits, the US version of SingStar Rocks!, and as downloadable content for Karaoke Revolution Presents American Idol Encore 2 for the PlayStation 3 as well as Rock Band 3. It also appeared on the Brazilian and Argentinian version of Infinity on High, From Under the Cork Tree's 2007 follow-up. Wentz prevented Kidz Bop from singing this on Kidz Bop 10 because of the sexual overtones to the song.

She says she's no good with words, but I'm worse
Barely stuttered out a joke of a romantic stuck to my tongue
Weighed down with words too overdramatic
Tonight it's it can't get much worse
Versus no one should ever feel like

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I write them
I need them just to get by

Dance, dance
We're falling apart to halftime
Dance, dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love
If they knew how misery loved me

You always fold just before you're found out
Drink up it's last call last resort
But only the first mistake and I

I'm two quarters and a heart down
And I don't want to forget how your voice sounds
These words are all I have so I write them 
So you need them just to get by

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress, love

Dance, dance
We're falling apart to halftime
Dance, dance
And these are the lives you love to lead
Dance, this is the way they'd love if they knew how misery loved me

Why don't you show me a little bit of spine
You've been saving for his mattress (mattress, mattress)
I only want sympathy in the form of you crawling into bed with me

Dance, dance
We're falling apart to halftime
Dance, dance
And these are the lives you love to lead

Dance this is the way they'd love (way they'd love)
Dance this is the way they'd love (way they'd love)
Dance this is the way they'd love if they knew how misery loved me

Dance, dance
Dance, dance
Dance, dance
Dance, dance
