“Dance Alone” lyrics – Jana Burceska (FYR Macedonia 2017)

4

Few days ago, after months of waiting, Jana Burceska unveiled her Eurovision entry “Dance Alone“. And boy, was it worth waiting!

“Dance Alone” is everything you would want a good 2010s pop song to be. It is radio-friendly, but it still sounds fresh. It is easy to dance and sing to, yet its lyrics still have a meaning. Judging by our readers’ comments, this song really has a chance to bring FYR Macedonia back to the Eurovision final for the first time since 2012.

“Dance Alone” was written by Borislav Milanov, Joacim Perrson, Florence A. and Alex Omar. Milanov and Persson, who co-wrote Bulgaria 2016’s entry “If Love Was a Crime“, also co-wrote this year’s Serbia’s song “In Too Deep“.

The song is a celebration of dancing, just letting the rhythm take over. In the big chorus, Jana sings, “I will dance alone wherever I am/The rhythm follows”.

And while “Dance Alone” provides a fierce backing track, Jana doesn’t even need music. She explains, “And all I need to keep on moving/Is the sound of my heartbeat”.

“Dance Alone” lyrics – Jana Burceska (FYR Macedonia 2017)

Take down my hair, wash off my make-up
It’s gonna be a one-man show
I gotta feel good in saturation
And I’m the only one who knows

I will dance alone wherever I am
The rhythm follows
I will dance alone, I’m lost in the sound
Holding on to my world

I let the pavement be my catwalk
I’ll bring the fire and feel the heat
And all I need to keep on moving
Is the sound of my heartbeat

I will dance alone wherever I am
The rhythm follows
I will dance alone, I’m lost in the sound
Holding on to my world

I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go wild
I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go

I will dance alone wherever I am
The rhythm follows

Take me to places that I’ve never been
Show me the faces that I’ve never seen

I will dance alone wherever I am
The rhythm follows
I will dance alone, I’m lost in the sound
Holding on to my world (I will dance alone)

I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go wild
I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go wild

I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go wild
I’ll let it go
I, I, I’ll let it go wild

I’ll be dancing on my own
Wishing you could hold me close
