I hope you dance - Lee Ann Womack





Title: Lee Ann Womack - I Hope You Dance lyrics

Artist: Lee Ann Womack


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 by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me 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 real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me 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 real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)



Was listening to this song when I was driving to the hospital for my medical follow up .... it took 1 and half hours to reach due to the jam. And it is during this time ... I will be thinking about alot of things ... talking to God .... I was feeling down again. Thinking about Nov .... missing my sister's wedding. Thinking about "what if" I dont make it again. I have gone through the exams thinking that I will pass....but yet. What about this time. I am doing all I can... and this will be the last time and I will move on with my life regardless of the outcome.

It was at this moment when I was thinking and sighing ... this song was playing .... it was like God whispering to me .... "Son ... will you dance ? Will you still keep a soft and willing heart before Me regardless of what had happened to you? Will you still rejoice if the outcome is not what you had expected ? Will you dance just because I love you ?"

To tell you the truth ... I wanted to get out of the car and dance right there in the midst of the jam..... the song brought a smile to my face. And yes everything will be fine ...... it will be fine

*thanks to my dear brother who compiled this CD for me which I had the pleasure of listening to.

Try not to put too much stress on yourself. Just do your best and leave the rest to God.

Btw, I will be in KL some time nx month. Let's meet up if there is a chance.

And I have posted my Redang photos on my blog:) Rented the underwater camera you mentioned.

hey..dont get too uptight about the exams. Take the previous attempts at the exams a learning curve. I flunked my MRCOG as well but came back with a vengence and finally manage to get myself admitted as a member of the college. I feel that you should attend your sister's wedding, that one day would not make much difference to the coming exam as by then you would know and read all you need to know. But your sister's wedding would not come again. My two cents.

Cheer up man!
