I Hope You Dance
Lee Ann Womack Lyrics


I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'
Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance (time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance

I hope you dance (tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (where those years have gone?)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance (time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance (tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance (where those years have gone?)
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
(Where those years have gone?)

@Heaven Storm Heaven, I just saw your post. I'm so sorry for your loss! There are so many here like you - Irena, Brian and more, who have had their souls scarred with this kind of loss. But as you see, there are also many who would help you endure by listening to your grief and sharing your burden if only just to give you a little solace.

Disagreements, arguments, fights, anger -They always seem worse as your child gets older but ultimately they mean nothing with no real harm done - she knew this. She sounds like a wonderful and selfless person - clearly she learned this from your expressions of love! Love needs no words Heaven - she knew then, as she knows now that you love her! Given her selfless nature, I think that at the very least, she would not want you to be so sad and not to blame yourself - you did nothing wrong!

Never feel alone. As the poem "Footprints in the Sand" concludes;
"My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you."



Rest assured, your prayers are being heard!

There is only so much a forum like this can do to help. PLEASE reach out to a counsellor for help. ♥🙏

This is why, when people ask, "What kind of music do you prefer?" I answer, "Good music." I doesn't matter what genre, there are always standouts that rise above. This is one of those.

Linda Taylor

Myk Streja With all due respect. Good answer.

@Life Soul Centered Refer to my comment I wrote above and see why it's pointless to reminisce the "good old days when great songwriting mattered". I have difficulty distinguishing between songs and what they tell in their lyrics. There are other things in life to sing about besides the love for your beloved ones.

@foto21com A great song with great lyrics is in the past these days, thanks to Beyonce who is trying to please her husband's insatiable sexual appetite by continually upping her hypersexualized videos and people are stupidly eating it up. There's other things in life to sing about besides sex.
