Her smile was an invitation
To start a conversation
So I moved in closer wearing
Too much cologne
I asked her if she came here often
If she might like a drink
Said I think we should find some place where
We can be alone

She said, "I must be going"
So I grabbed her by the wrist
I said, "what's the girl like you doing
Alone in a place like this?"

I desired her attention
So I decided I should mention
If she felt like dancing
Well, there was room on the floor
I said, "let's spend some time together
Let's get to know each other"
I felt like maybe
We've met some place before

A more fabulous dancer
Did not exist
So I asked her what she's doing
Alone in a place like this

I longed for a connection
I spun her in all directions
Feeling light on her feet
Is what she enjoys the most
While admiring her complexion
I came across my lonely reflection
And I realized that I have been dancing
Not with a woman, but with a ghost

So I pulled myself together
Hoping no-one noticed
What's a guy like me doing dancing
Alone in a place like this

Alone in a place like this
Alone in a place like this
