I hope you dance

Written by Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers and recorded by Lee Ann Womack in 2000, this song is one of my all time favorite. It’s message is timeless, and uplifting. It re-iterates the importance of “living” and not just “existing” while emphasizing the need to take chances. I hope that in all you do, you take the time to smell the roses and to dance.

                                I HOPE YOU DANCE

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 Hellbent 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 (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder?)
