"To Dance" as written by Pierce Ray Pettis and Greta Larson....
To dance
A prospective of bones
Musical bath
It's clearing a path of one's own

Blue jeans and muscle
Or crinoline rustle
You learn it in class or alone
To dance

To dance
It's a gravity thing
Shoes to the earth
Pulling toward a verse that is beckoning

Oh, the dizzy affect
Of rhythm and sweat
Flying like a kid in a swing
To dance

Arms in a moment
Some worried connection
Telling of hearts
Where they don't need protection

A journey in place
A private affection to share
To dance

Is swimming in time
Where passion, and public, and prudence can somehow align

Moving like lovers on top of the covers
Everyone knows it's alright
To dance

Touch without touching
Love without breathing
Hold on and let go without anyone leaving

All of part of the beat you're receiving
And sending back out through your feet

In itself it's complete
God it is sweet
To dance

To dance
The movement confines limbs in a language
That is spoken in three quarter time

And is suddenly gone at the end of the song
And you knew you were safe all along
To dance
To dance
To dance
