I hope you dance…

A commercial came on playing this song in the background and for the first time I actually paid attention to the words.  As I looked up the lyrics written for Lee Ann Womack (no relation) by Mark Sanders and Tia Sillers; I wanted to repost them because reading those words further inspired me to remember the goodness that life has to offer.

Some days life can be a little a scary because we have a choice to take the path of least resistance or to step out on faith.  Sometimes we take the chance it doesn’t work out so well but we can’t let those set backs stop us from living, loving and laughing.

I hope you live through the hurt.  I  hope you love through the heartbreak.  I hope you laugh through the pain.  I hope you dance through life.


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
Living might mean taking chances but they’re worth taking
Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth making

Don’t let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling 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)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
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)

  1. This song has been playing in my head ever since I read the title let alone the post. I love that song and the fact that you stopped to pay attention then called our attention to it.
