"The Dance" as written by Eric D. Dawkins and Anson R. Dawkins....
Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars alone
For a moment all the world was right
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 of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have chanced 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 of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

    General CommentYou should hear the original version by Garth Brooks - it's infinitely more powerful and heartbreaking than Rockell's version. I like Rockell's voice, but the upbeat-dance beat takes alot of power out of the song.
