" Links are not allowed in song text "
This message shows up every time I'm trying to add a new song today.
Up until yesterday everything was fine.
Is it a bug?

Is there a link in your text? If no, could you paste song text here or send it via a pm?

we're once again surrounded by
too many smiling people
but when we close our eyes we feel
so empty and alone
we're like strangers, like actors...
we're dancers!
And we're dancing all night...
alone

passion, confidence, style, beauty,
erotism, alcohol, drugs, money
let the dance begin!!

"stay with me my love,
hold my hand forever
whisper in my ear the words
I want to hear
dance with me my love,
offer me another drink
we're strangers in love
for one night
but this night will be long...
I hope it will be long..."

you're once again surrounded
by the blinding lights of glory
you are the very important person
of the night
and you're shining, you're flying,
you're dreaming
and you're thinking "oh! my god,
what a delight!!"
...but you're crying 'cause you know that
you're dead inside

"dance with me my child, housewife,
killer, lawyer
touch my body lover, I am out of my mind
tell me jokes and laugh!
Laugh as much as you like!
We're the dancing generation
but we don't know why we dance
please tell me why we dance?
Please tell me why we dance?"

...and as the night slowly slips away,
the first rays of light appear in the sky,
reveiling the shamefulness of your
naked bodies
dance now!! you fools...

This is the exact lyrics text.
It's a transcription I've made from the album booklet to my notepad.
I've tried to submit it once more just before I answer to your comment
but the same problem occured.

Update: I've successfully submitted another song under the same artist just a minute ago.
I can't understand what's happening...

Try to remove ... at the beginnings of lines.

I just put the dots in brackets and the problem was solved.
Thanks a bunch, Brat!

You are welcome! You can also put spaces between dots - it works either. Wink smile

This sounds a great idea. I'll try it right away.
Thanks again!

You are always welcome! And, to be completely safe-n-sound, you can also try to insert this -> … (just copy/paste it, and it should work), Wink smile

Your spaces-between-dots trick did the job.
I owe you one. Thumbs up

Your "one" would be a fun; a half is quite enough. Regular smile
BTW, I suspect that a single space before the dots can do the job too...
