Dancing In The Dark

I put my headphones in,
And I begin to sway,
I rock back and forth to the music
And welcome in the day.
It helps me keep my peace,
all throughout the day,
That beautiful, sweet music,
Keeps me awake till the end of day.
But then I get home,
I turn the lights off and close the door,
The music goes into my speakers,
And it fills me to the core.
I raise my arms up high,
I hear the neighbours’ dog bark,
No one else can see me,
Cause I’m dancing in the dark.
