I Wish You Love & I Hope You Dance

I Hope You Dance
By 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 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 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,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.


I hope you dance.



  1. Oh, I don't want to look back {scary}, but I do want to look forward to more "dancing" in my life!

    I have always loved the sentiments in this song, words to live by and dance by.

  2. well since my saying is
    there is always time to dance
    then you know i pray all get a chance to dance

  3. That's a terrific song. I have it on CD.
