Looking back On the memory of The dance we shared ‘Neath the stars above

For a moment All the world was right But how could I have known That you’d ever say goodbye

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 have had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything For a moment Wasn’t I the king?

If I’d only known How the king would fall Hey, who’s to say You know I might have changed it all

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 have had to miss the dance

It’s my life, it’s better left to chance I could have missed the pain But I’d have had to miss the (dance)
