Robyn - Dancing On My Own Lyrics

Somebody said you got a new friend
Does she love you better than I can?
There's a big black sky over my town
I know where you're at, I bet she's around

Yeah, I know it's stupid
I just gotta see it for myself

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, oh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, oh
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

I'm just gonna dance all night
I'm all messed up, I'm so out of line
Stilettos and broken bottles
I'm spinning around in circles

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, oh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, oh
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

So far away but still so near
The lights go on, the music dies
But you don't see me standing here
I just came to say goodbye

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, oh
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

I'm in the corner, watching you kiss her, oh
I'm right over here, why can't you see me, oh
I'm giving it my all, but I'm not the girl you're taking home, oh
I keep dancing on my own
I keep dancing on my own

I keep dancing on my own

    Came here after listening to Cailum on X factor

  4. Assous Lola

    Gossip girl ✌🏼❤️

  5. Jacob Haley

    2020 anyone?

  6. Gamersanonymous

    Calums version is far better than this one.

  7. Alina Hernandez

    This is the type of song that would have been on Awkward as Matty f’s Jenna over again and she moves on for the 137291x

  8. Janae Chavez

    Gay culture is knowing this song

  9. dboytear

    i grew up with the original version, i can't understand how people prefer calums version, this will always be Robyn's song

  10. Luis Hernández

  16. Lamont Hughes

    I’m from another timeline, long story short he would of picked a Justin Bieber song if not this

  17. Myra Ntlatlapa

    Who tf is Calum?

    Cheyenne Brennan

    He's a British singer who performed a ballad-y version of this song on Britain's Got Talent and got the Golden Buzzer for it. He is amazing and you should give it a listen.

  18. Rzech' Pospolitaya

    original is much better than calum's version deal w it

  19. Izzy Trujillo

    Robyn’s song really is enjoyable, but unfortunately I heard Callum Scott’s version first, so now the original just seems kind of ‘fake’, since it doesn’t convey the emotion behind the lyrics as well for me. No need to attack me it’s just my opinion :)

  20. CV_RN

    this song changed music

  21. Tidus Henrique

    Amo! <3

  22. kiefy why

    Wow....Calum gets 384m+ views and the original only got 53m views.
    Does it hurt Robyn??

  23. Jara

    Adoro esta cancion desde que la oí😊🎧

  24. Robert Trail

    Still waiting on her to actually sing in this video. She's an electronic hot mess.

  25. Rey Aleman


  26. muhammadimran shafiq

    Rodrigo Anjos

  34. ElectricTrooper Clash Royale

    "I'm not the guy you're taking home"

    Me: ???


    It does sound a bit like she says guy. LOL.

    polaroid_ people

    1925RTJJDER is she not actually saying guy?


    @polaroid_ people No. She's saying girl, as in, "I'm not the girl you're takin' home." It just sounds like guy with the way she sings.

    polaroid_ people

    1925RTJJDER ohhh. This whole time I thought she was saying guy, but in a way like how we say “what’s up guys”


    @polaroid_ people I can see that.

  35. Miss Understood

    I have been in the same situation she is singing about. It made me a stronger . thank you for singing with such strength Robyn

  36. Kaj Piemyat

    Follow end credit come Longshot movie

  37. ronaldo macaroni

    Why does she look like that guy from tron legacy

  38. ai ko

    This version sounds so empowering. Like even though the guy she liked didnt notice her, she eventually forgot him and did her own thing. Calum's version was really depressing.

  39. J'aimes

    This song is so emotional, I love it. It moves me every time I listen no matter what. I did a cover of Calum Scott’s version on my channel if anyone wants to see my take.

  40. Joaqin Castro

    I like Robyn's version than calum's version I dont know why

  41. Minnie E.

    I grew up with Robyn’s debut album in the 90s. I’m so happy for her for her international success and long lasting career.

  42. Hydden N. Plainsyght

    Lesbian Anthem heart-break song.

  43. taytoo RK

    I never knew this but now I'm addicted😁

  44. Jakob Israel

    Who’s here for jujubee and raven

  45. Malong Talong

    Robyn's version and Calum's version are both good... Really really good

  46. Pippo 22

    i still don't understand why the mic stand has no mic.

    Packer Packer

    Lol. Your comment made me smile

    Maame Abena

    Pippo 22 🤣🤣🤣

    Irate Primate

    The mic's in the corner...

    I'll keep standing on my own


    My guess is that it's metaphorical, implying no one is hearing her. I also could be looking too far into it or totally missing the point lol

  47. KidSemplice

    I’ve always thought calum scott wrote this song damn

  48. Miss Understood

    I definitely love her version much better than his slow poke way of singing it. Shes so much more into it

    Soul Calibur Simmer

    It also adds to the feeling of 'Getting heartbroken in the club' like the song describes

    Miss Understood

    I would love to see a concert of hers. Does anyone know next year's tour dates

    Miss Understood

    Ya know, I chose to listen to both versions tonight. And wow! I'm totally elated. Both artists know how to express their emotions in two different ways. But DAMN!! Thats what music is all about

  49. Wenas Jennifer

    Elle fanning 😍😍😍

  53. jisan

    Luckily this version came before Calum's version. If later, I would say, she ruined it.

  73. floradel •

  74. Amy Richardson

    Calum scott did it better

  75. cyber gabriel

    Robyn is a swede so I wish there was a swedish version of this song :(

  76. Soul Calibur Simmer

    Great song, but is anyone gonna talk about how she's dancing like Joker going down the stairs 💀

    Jacob Biggs

    This came out first so joker is dancing like her down them steps 😂🤷🏻‍♂️

  77. Carlos KarmaKoma

    Stereogum #1

  78. NFY Ꮋ Ꮖ Ꭲ Ꭲ Ꮮ Ꭼ Ꭱ

    Calum In A Wonderful Moment Of Your Career After America Got Talents

  79. Reanna George

    Omg Calum Scott made this song with so much meaning he sings it way better


    Reanna George But it’s a dance song... hence dancing on my own. It’s not a ballad. Robyn is the original 💁🏼‍♀️

  80. Jafar Husein

    I think this song redifine many pop songs in 2010's,,when i was 11 years old i really like this song,,greetings from Indonesia

  81. Good Job

    what I see in this mv is extremely lonely

  82. Giorno Giovanno

    im starting to smell her armpits

  83. Bjorn Lucent

    luv u gurl, ur music is awesome

  84. A D

    Robin, Robin, and Robin once more. Once authentic, always authentic

  85. Nonsense PoopyPants

    She's good at dancing like Napoleon Dynamite is good at dancing.


    She has great skills

  86. Alyza joy Pabillore

    Calum gives me goosebumpss but this lady wants me to rock while crying hahahaha

    abhishek naik

    haha XD

  87. Will

    This song is pop perfection. Hands down, no questions the best pop song of the decade imo

  88. Cheyenne Brennan

    Calum was the first time I heard this song, and it was beautiful, but thanks to Raven and Jujubee, it's this version that makes me cry buckets!

  89. Caroline Cushing

    I always thought Calum’s was the original version so I always got rly confused when he said watching u kiss her... I was like how does that work? I mean she could be lesbian or he could be gay no judgement but I finally figured out why that was the lyric

  90. Sam J. Boomhauer

    Wait, who is Calum Scott?

  91. TaraKaboom

    This song’s like a sequel to tame impala’s “Less I Know The Better”. And a prequel to Lorde’s “Green Light”

  92. ShoiYen & KierVi UPDATES

    Calum brings me here

  93. marjorie mae bascones

    I'm thinking of Cher lloyd's version. It was so emotional

  94. Cry Havoc

    Calum Scott took this song and made it legendary! His version is unforgettable! Who is this chick?

    Joaquin Ramirez

    HAHAHA and you are...?

  95. Tony Cardall

    Never heard of her but was curious who made the original.Can't say i'm a big fan of either version but i think the guy on the tv show has a better voice imo.


    Es normal que mientras la escucho, sienta el deseo de llorar y luego salir corriendo sin saber a dónde?

  97. Alejandro Mayorga

    Does anyone feel akward with the video? Or is just me 😅

    Daniel Suarez

    Just you
