The Dance

The Dance

From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul

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 was I to know that you’d ever
say good-bye

[Chorus:]
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 a king
If I’d known how the king would fall
Well then who’s to say I might have changed it all

[Repeat Chorus]

Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I’d of had to miss the dance*
