Dancing On My Own Lyrics
Does she love you better than I can?
And there's a big black sky over my town
I know where you're at, I bet she's around
And yeah, I know it's stupid
But I just gotta see it for myself
I'm in the...

With gender fluidity becoming such a big part of so many cultures, he is simply a human being in pain, because someone he wants doesn’t want him.

“I purposely didn’t change the pronouns in Dancing On My Own, so that it was from a gay man’s perspective."

This song was originally written by a female, Robyn. In the original song she writes “I’m not the girl you’re taking home”

At one point I wondered if perhaps he had passed away and at his funeral saw friends and family sharing their sympathies and was wondering why they couldn't see him. Of course I agree with everyone's comments about whether he's gay or it's about his girlfriend becoming a lesbian is all irrelevant.
I think everyone should let their soul interpret the song in the way they hear it. I just lost two brothers, a sister and a mother in the last five years and perhaps that's why the funeral is on my mind. God bless you all!

how could he be singing it from the girl's point of view when he clearly says "im not the guy you're taking home". he's either gay or the girl is a lesbian which doesn't matter 'cause it still makes sense and his song is stunning!

Without any prior insight, I had the singer a man whose woman has left him for another woman......he changed her

All that really counts is that hes a happy man, and a good singer. Get over it, people.

I don't think he is gay, he is just saying it from the girl's pov. And it's just a song.

Calum Scott came out a little while ago saying that “this is how he came out telling the world he’s gay”. No need to hate on him everyone is different I’m their own way

He's not gay well I don't think I think he's just saying it from the girls pov. (Robyn)

Hasnt anyone thought that the girl he talk about might be a lesbian?? No?? Just me? :3 .... okay :P

i think he is saying it from the girls point of view

Who cares! At the end of the day, his version is stunning to listen to and he shouldn't be subjected to being boxed under a label when it doesn't matter if he's Gay or not. It's time to grow up and let people be who they are without society's label. We are given a name at birth and that's the only label we should wear in life

He is saying why did he choose him over someone else. (perhaps a guy)

It was originally by Robyn who is female and Calum has kept the lyrics the same apart from "I'm not the guy you're taking home"
