Life's A Dance Lyrics

Artist: John Michael Montgomery
Album: Greatest Hits

(Allen Shamblin/Steve Seskin)

When I was fourteen I was falling fast
For a blue eyed girl in my homeroom class
Trying to find the courage to ask her out
Was like trying to get oil from a waterspout
What she would have said I can't say
I never did ask and she moved away
But I learned something from my blue eyed girl
Sink or swim you gotta give it a whirl

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

The longer I live the more I believe
You do have to give if you wanna recieve
There's a time to listen, a time to talk
And you might have to crawl even after you walk
Had sure things blow up in my face
Seen the longshot, win the race
Been knocked down by the slamming door
Picked myself up and came back for more

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don't worry about what you don't know
Life's a dance you learn as you go

Life's a dance
Life's a dance
Life's a dance
Take a chance on love
Life's a dance
You learn as you go

John Michael Montgomery wrote a lot of songs that teach something. Life's a Dance teaches that nobody knows everything, we all learn from our mistakes.
Remember, life's a dance, you learn as you go!

I love this song so much. I've seen this beautiful Blue - eyed girl at my school. The very first time i ever seen her, i thought that i was literally in heaven. I was actually drooling. I've got the same lunch period as her, and the same art class as her. I love her so much. i always have, and i always will. No matter what happens. Her name is Britney. I actually searched through exactly 7,986 different songs to find this. And now i did!!!!
