About Dance Away

"Dance Away" is a song by the English rock band Roxy Music. Released in April 1979, it was the second single to be taken from their album Manifesto, and became one of the band's most famous songs, reaching number 2 in the UK and spending a total of 14 weeks on the charts, the longest chart residency of a Roxy Music single. Although it did not make number 1, it became the ninth biggest selling single in the UK in 1979. It did make it to number 1 on the Irish Singles Chart and held that position for one week. "Dance Away" was originally written by Bryan Ferry for his 1977 solo album In Your Mind, but did not make the final track listing. It was then planned for inclusion on his 1978 album The Bride Stripped Bare, but again was not included. It was finally completed and released on Roxy Music's Manifesto, the band's first studio album in four years. The single version was a different shorter edit and mix compared to the original album version. As with their next single "Angel Eyes", the single version of "Dance Away" replaced the album version in subsequent releases. While the 1999 re-mastered version of the "Manifesto" album restored the original version of "Angel Eyes", it still retained the single mix of "Dance Away" in place of the original, making the Thrill of It All box set the only release on which the LP version of the song could be found, until the release of the box set The Complete Studio Recordings 1972-1982 in 2012.

Yesterday, well it seemed so cool
When I walked you home, kissed goodnight
I said "it's love" you said "all right"
It's funny how I could never cry
Until tonight and you pass by
Hand in hand with another guy
You're dressed to kill and guess who's dying?
Dance away the heartache
Dance away the tears
Dance away

Loneliness is a crowded room
Full of open hearts turned to stone
All together all alone
All at once my whole world had changed
Now I'm in the dark, off the wall
Let the strobe light up them all
I close my eyes and dance till dawn
Dance away

Now I know I must walk the line
Until I find an open door
There was I, many times a fool
I hope and pray, but not too much
Out of reach is out of touch
All the way is far enough
Dance away
