"Dance" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
When I think of what he's done
I can dance, dance, dance all day, all night
Come on stand, clap your hands dance, dance

Dance, everybody down with us just dance
Wanna feel the groove then clap your hands
They ask who's been blessed tonight, I am
God's been good to me, never to be too late
And continually he's great he's on time
Even if I have to sit and wait

Sitting in the corner reminiscing
The course my life
Has taken all my ups and all my downs
But your mercy and grace brought me to this place

When I think of what he's done
I can dance, dance, dance all day, all night
Come on stand, clap you hands dance, dance

Trials and pain temptations reign
I never see how I'm gone make it though on my own
Not a chance, so I have to turn to you
Then you come and rescue me once again and again
So right now all I can do is give you praise

It's alright, it's okay, come clap your hands
Give him praise, give him praise
Go ahead just stand up
Come on shout and dance, give him praise

When I think of what he's done
I can dance, dance, dance all day, all night
Come on stand, clap your hands, dance

    General CommentWhat a simple, sad song. I'm not really sure if it's about anything particular - my guess is that Gary simply put these words together because he thought they sounded beautiful. However, a few of the lines seem to have some meaning.
    The first is 'I could walk out and just impress myself', which to me suggests that Gary has decided that he no longer needs to perform on stage to impress thousands of fans; this album was of course released soon after Gary had announced his retirement from live music.
    'I dream of rumours like a favourite pastime' - this suggests how hurt Gary was by the harsh critiques to which he was subjected by the British press, and how obsessed he later became with chasing commercial success.
    The line 'This celebration makes me crawl away and hide' to me reflects his rejection of celebrity and, again, his retirement from the stage.
    This is a really amazing song. In fact, the whole Dance album is my favourite effort from Numan. Although it is strange that the title track of the album is one of the few that doesn't contain the word 'dance'.
