Sam Smith - Dancing With a Stranger (with Normani)

[Intro: Sam Smith]
Hmm, mhm

[Verse 1: Sam Smith]
I don't wanna be alone tonight (Alone tonight)
It's pretty clear that I'm not over you (Over you, over you)
I'm still thinking 'bout the things you do (Things you do)
So I don't wanna be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight
Can you light the fire? (Light the fire, light the fire)
I need somebody who can take control (Take control)
I know exactly what I need to do
'Cause I don't wanna be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight

[Chorus: Sam Smith]
Look what you made me do, I'm with somebody new
Ooh, baby, baby, I'm dancing with a stranger
Look what you made me do, I'm with somebody new
Ooh, baby, baby, I'm dancing with a stranger
Dancing with a stranger

[Verse 2: Normani]
I wasn't even going out tonight (Out tonight)
But, boy, I need to get you off of my mind (Off of my mind)
I know exactly what I have to do
I don't wanna be alone tonight, alone tonight, alone tonight

“Dancing with a Stranger” is a collaboration between singer-songwriters Sam Smith and Normani. It’s about finding someone new, expressed in the metaphor ‘dancing with a stranger’, and moving on from an old flame. This track was written during a short break from Sam Smith’s The Thrill of it All World Tour in September 2018. Sam and Normani, by coincidence, were working at the same time in a Los Angeles studio with producer StarGate. In an interview to Zane Lowe, Sam said: I was with StarGate […]when she [Normani] came in that day [ …]. I said to her ‘Do you want to hear the song?’ […]. She’s special […] she just jumped on the song there with me and she sang it and it was perfect. The collaboration was timely for Sam, who had been a fan of Fifth Harmony, the girl group Normani gained recognition and fame with, and especially a fan of hers since seeing her performance with Khalid of ‘Love Lies’ for Billboard.
