This was originally the title of a short story by Jonathon Winters, but I kept it filed away in the back of my head for years. I envisioned a lonely soul on the beach dancing with himself, pretending his loved one is there. Of course the song begs questions that are never answered: Where did she go? Why did she go? Will she ever come back? We'll never know.
Last night I danced alone In the dark, by the sea And though I was alone I imagined you with me And the waves sang a chorus And the wind a melody And the stars were shining for us Till I realized it was only me In the dark, by the sea But I held you until the song was through Because I miss dancing with you I miss dancing with you
