THE DANCE


Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared, neath the stars above,
For a moment, all the world was right.
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye.

AND NOW, I'M GLAD I DIDN'T KNOW
THE WAY IT ALL WOULD END, THE WAY IT ALL WOULD GO.
OUR LIVES ARE BETTER LEFT TO CHANCE;
I COULD HAVE MISSED THE PAIN,
BUT I'D OF HAD TO MISS THE DANCE.

Holding you, I held everything.
For a moment, wasn't I the King ...
If I'd only known how the king would fall,
Whose to say, you know, I might have changed it all.

And now, I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go.
Our lives are better left to chance,
I could have missed the pain.
But I'd of had to miss the dance.

Yes my life is better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain,
But, I'd of had to miss the dance!

(And Sung by Garth Brooks)






Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance!
They awaken us to understanding,
With the whispering of their wisdom.

Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile
And leave footprints on our hearts.
And we are NEVER, NEVER the same!

LIFE'S A DANCE


When I was 14, I was fallin' fast
For a blue-eyed girl in my homeroom class.
Tryin' to find the courage to ask her out
Was like tryin' to get oil from a water spout.

What you can seek, I can't say.
I never did ask and she moved away.
But I learned something from my blue-eyed girl.
Sink or swim, you've got to give it a whirl.

LIFE'S A DANCE, YOU LEARN AS YOU GO
SOMETIMES YOU LEAD, SOMETIMES YOU FOLLOW
DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
LIFE'S A DANCE YOU LEARN AS YOU GO.

The longer I live, the more I believe
You do have to give, if you want to receive.
There's a time to listen, a time to talk.
And you might have to crawl even after you walk.

Had your things blow up in my face
Sent along so I could win the race.
Been knocked down by the slammin' door;
Picked myself up and came back for more.

Life's a dance, you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go.

Life's A Dance; Life's A Dance.
Life's A Dance; Take a chance on love.
Life's A Dance; You Learn As You Go!

(As Sung by John Michael Montgomery)
