I Wouldn't Dance For You

I couldn't dance on cue
Or any of the other things you want me to do,
And everything I say to you is never getting through,
So I'll just stop bothering you.
If the only thing that I've ever known
Is wanting to write a happy song and call it my own,
Some days it seems like everyone is handing you a bone
And no one is calling you home.

I couldn't climb up the walls,
Or make myself seem interested with alcohol.
For everything you say, well, I could say nothing at all,
But I couldn't climb down from this wall.
And if you really want to know the truth,
I'd be more than happy to forget about you.
You'll never see any of things that I could do,
Cause I couldn't dance for you.

You've confused me with someone who has something to prove, someone who'd dance for you.
