I Dance

lyrics

SOMETIMES I WEAR MY HEART ON MY SHOES
SO I’M READY TO WALK AWAY IF I CHOOSE
I PUSH AND I PULL AT THE SAME TIME
IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A FAILING OF MINE

BUT ENOUGH ABOUT MY CHARACTER FLAWS
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WAY IT WAS
I USED TO LIVE IN A WORLD OF HOPE
THESE DAYS I JUST GET ON WITH THE SHOW

AND SO BEGINS THE RISE AND FALL
BUT THERE’S A DANCER IN US ALL
SO I DANCE
I DANCE

SHOULD HAVE KEPT COUNT WHEN KEEPING FAITH
BUT I BELIEVED I COULD CARRY THIS WEIGHT
AND I’M NOT SEEKING PITY OR PRAISE
JUST WANNA FEEL I’VE GOT SOMETHING LEFT TO SAY

AND SO BEGINS THE RISE AND FALL
BUT THERE’S A DANCER IN US ALL
SO I DANCE
I DANCE

WHEN I THINK OF ALL THE HOURS I’VE LOST
WORRYING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT
THEY COULD NEVER HURT ME AS BADLY
AS THE WORDS OF MY FATHER HAVE

BUT I’M THANKFUL FOR SO MUCH OTHER STUFF
FOR I HAVE TASTED TRUE LOVE
I HAVE STOOD WITH MY FACE TO THE WIND
I HAVE CRIED I HAVE LAUGHED I HAVE LIVED
