alt-J - Dancing In The Moonlight Lyrics




Well I passed you in the doorway
And you took me with a glance
Should have been on that last bus home
But I asked you for a dance

Now we go steady to the pictures
I always get chocolate stains on my pants
And my father's going crazy
Say's I'm living in a trance

But I'm dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in the spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

Well it's three o'clock in the morning
And I'm on the streets again
Disobeyed another warning
I should have been home by ten

I won't get out until Sunday
I'll have to say I stayed with friends
But it's a habit worth forming
If the means justify the ends

I'm dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in the spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

Dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in the spotlight
It's alright
Dancing in the moonlight
On this long hot summer night

alt-J Dancing In The Moonlight Comments
  1. Zoé St

    This song is my girlfriend alarm in the morning I could have love it but I can't i'm so sorry

  2. hilou 2000

    this song sadly reminds me of my ex, I was in class and she passed me through the doorway.. And took me with a glance.. 8 months into the relationship I had to move to another country, I was still in love with her but she lost it.. I come back to this song and it reminds me of how beautiful that day was and how I literally blocked for 10 seconds from seeing her

  3. Aaron Archer

    Still thinking of you. Wherever you are.

  4. Audrey Apple

    This is what maladaptive daydreaming feels like to me... I'm dancing in the moonlight in my own mind.

  5. D G K B

    Love it 🥰😘🥰😘🥰😘😘

  6. Silver Chains

    Okay my older cousin recommended this song to me two days ago and I haven't stopped listening to it. It's so gorgeous I've fallen asleep to it at one point. And this song would be perfect to dance to. I've even imagined dancing under the moon in a valley or a beautiful place with someone I love while this song plays in the background.

    BrownieBitch's Stuff

    These songs makes you feel like you're in love with someone even if you're not.

  7. Jk Im just kidding

    after all these years I keep coming back to this song, it is just so full of love.
    I think this is going to be my wedding song for the first dance

  8. Berkay Boz

    this song brings back so many memories

  9. Aditi Randev

    Somewhere deep down I know I'll never have that person I can share a dance with to this beautiful song.

  10. Dogol-Cha

    the blacklist brought me here

  11. Luca Biloni

    È una delle canzoni forse l'unica che ho sentito fino ad ora che la tocca piano....

  12. virtual playlist

    this cover gives me the chills! alt-j, you guys never fail ❤️

  13. Federcio Dibattista

    Well I passed you in the doorway
    And you took me with a glance
    Should have been on that last bus home
    But I asked you for a dance
    Now we go steady to the pictures
    I always get chocolate stains on my pants
    And my father's going crazy
    Say's I'm living in a trance
    But I'm dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night
    Well it's three o'clock in the morning
    And I'm on the streets again
    Disobeyed another warning
    I should have been home by ten
    I won't get out until Sunday
    I'll have to say I stayed with friends
    But it's a habit worth forming If the means justify the ends
    I'm dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night
    Dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night

    Dancing in the Moonlight (It's Caught Me in its Spotlight)

    Well I passed you in the doorway
    And you took me with a glance
    Should have been on that last bus home
    But I asked you for a dance
    Now we go steady to the pictures
    I always get chocolate stains on my pants

    Say's I'm living in a trance
    But I'm dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night
    Well it's three o'clock in the morning
    And I'm on the streets again
    Disobeyed another warning
    I should have been home by ten
    I won't get out until Sunday
    I'll have to say I stayed with friends
    But it's a habit worth forming If the means justify the ends
    I'm dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night
    Dancing in the moonlight
    It's caught me in the spotlight
    It's alright
    Dancing in the moonlight
    On this long hot summer night

  53. Thomas Sammut

    I just want to know who disliked the video ...

  54. JamWorks

    _"Corpo cordenado"_

  57. Hayley Longster

    Oh crap Toploader really did rip this song off very awfully

  58. NicSlim3006

  60. Alpin Seoul

    anani sikiyim bu ne şarki böyle

  61. obi john kenobi

    Oh damn I'm commenting on the wrong song, dancing in the moonlight is the one I can't put my finger on

  62. obi john kenobi

    Why is there a part in this song that reminds me of another 80s song other than thin lizzy. No hate intended but it's driving me crazy, the bit with the angelic harmony bit?

  63. Lorena Rodrigues

    Sweet, but Thin Lizzy >>>>

  64. canadmexi

    I honestly think the new version is boring.

  65. Yellow

    How to play on guitar?

  66. Andre Adams

  75. Arkita Deka

    Who doesn't love dancing in the moonlight. :) If the means justify the ends. :)

  76. Ebrar Çevik

    If i die without dancing in the moonlight with my boyfriend while this song is playing, it means that I never existed
