The Dance


“Looking back on the memory of
the dance we shared beneath the stars above
for a moment all the world was right
how could I have known 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
but if I'd only known how the king would fall
hey who's 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"

In order to like a song you must be moved, in some way, by it. Sometimes it’s the artist, the music, the melody or the feel of the song but more than likely it’s the lyrics. The Dance by Garth Brooks moves me like no other, in ways that I cannot find the words to express. This song was probably one of the best songs he ever did and I would venture to say one of his most popular. It doesn’t take much to explain, the lyrics tell the story.
“Our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain, but I’d of had to miss the dance”. My dear Brad; thanks for the dance. You are missed and loved each day.
