Structure + Lyrics

Intro

Verse

are you going to live your life wondering
standing in the back, looking around?
are you going to waste your time thinking
how you've grown up
how you missed out?
things are never going to be the way you want
where's it going to get you acting serious?
things are never going to be quite what you want
even at twenty five you got to start sometime

Chorus

i'm on my feet
i'm on the floor
i'm good to go
now all i need is just to hear a song i know
i want to always feel like part of this was mine
i want to fall in love tonight

Verse

are you going to live your life standing in the back looking around?
are you going to waste your time?
got to make a move or you'll miss out
someone is going to ask you what it's all about
stick around nostalgia won't let you down
someone is going to ask you what it's all about
what are you going to have to say for yourself?

Chorus

i'm on my feet
i'm on the floor
i'm good to go
now all i need is just to hear a song i know
i want to always feel like part of this was mine
i want to fall in love tonight

Bridge

crimson and clover
over and over
(our house in the middle of the street, why did we ever meet?
started my rock 'n roll fantasy
don't don't, don't let's start, why did we ever part?
kick start my rock 'n rollin' heart)
 

Last Chorus

i'm on my feet
i'm on the floor
i'm good to go
so come on davey, sing me something that i know
want to always feel like part of this was mine
i want to fall in love tonight
here, tonight
