Dancing on the Moon

I had little confidence before
I’m scared to sing in the shower
But now I’m singing to you
You, you just appeared from out of nowhere
You pick me up without knowing
You shot me up into the atmosphere

Hey, look at me dancing on the moon
I’ve got a girl so sweet
She got me back in tune, yeah
Now I’m floating, floating about in love

Up, up and away
I’ve got a good feeling
I’m feeling that I’m believing
It’s gonna stay with me always
Let’s go, we’ll go swimming in starlight
Diving down to you now
Take me further than I’ve ever been before

Hey, look at me dancing on the moon
I’ve got a girl so sweet
She got me back in tune, yeah
Now I’m floating, floating about in love

Hey, look at me dancing on the moon
I’ve got a girl so sweet
She got me back in tune, yeah
Now I’m floating, floating about in love
Baby you’re the one for me
You got a smile that shines
A smile that now is mine, yeah
Falling further, floating onto heaven
Keep it going, floating about in love

Song Notes

“Jesus Says”, the lead-single to which this track was a B-side, was the first Ash single to be released on two CD formats and caused unrest amongst the band, who were unhappy at the decision to do some B-sides purely for chart reasons. As a result Rick disappeared back to Belfast and didn’t arrive for the recording session, so the band got Danny Goffey from the band Supergrass to drum on this track.
