"Dance With Me" is an unreleased song by Poppy.

In 2015, she first performed it live at the Corona Capital Festival and again in Portland, Oregon during the Dumblonde Tour. The studio instrumental was used in the now-deleted video of Poppy in New York. She also performed a stripped down version in a Periscope interview. Little else is known about the song.

The acoustic version performed in the Periscope interview can be listened to here. The video of Poppy in New York can be viewed here. The full instrumental can be heard here.  

Theme

Dance With Me is speculated to be about the relationship of Poppy and Mars Argo, due to Mars Argo being in New York when the song was being performed and Poppy (the character) knowing little about her.

It is also speculated that it could be about the aftermath of Titanic and Mars' relationship making it seem as if Titanic is the victim.

Lyrics

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?
It's time to take a stand stop playing pretend, everything's okay with me
I don't wanna go to New York, I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna go to New York, today

Don't mean to sound satirical but I wish you believed in miracles
You always think I'm wrong
But I'd give it up to get along
With you again

I need to be away from you for good
Just breathe, I hope I'm not misunderstood about your love
I can't believe that you're so far away now

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?
It's time to take a stand, stop playing pretend, everything’s okay with me
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna go to New York today

I don't mean to sound satirical but I wish you believed in miracles
You always think I'm wrong
But I'd give it up to get along
With you again

I would fool sternly
'Cause I can't breathe the same time only
I hope I'm not misunderstood about your love
I can't believe that you're so far away now

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?
It's time to take a stand, stop playing pretend, everything’s okay with me
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna go to New York today

I don't want to sing contentedly
But I found to work with time to spare baby
I think I broke the law
Don't know how I'll live this small with you again

I would fool sternly
Cause I can't breathe the same time only
I hope I'm not misunderstood about your love
I can't believe that you're so far away now

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?
It's time to take a stand, stop playing pretend, everything’s okay with me
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna go to New York today

Woah-oah-oah-oah-oah
Woah-oah-oah-oah-oah
Fantasize about that dream
We could make it happen too

I don't understand a single thing about you, don't you wanna dance with me?
It's time to take a stand, stop playing pretend, everything’s okay with me
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna see your face
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna go to New York
I don't wanna go to New York today

I don't understand a single thing about you

I don't understand a single thing about you
