i hope you dance

By Lee Ann Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
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
Living might mean taking chances but they’re worth taking
Loving might be a mistake but it’s worth making

Don’t let some hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it ou 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 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

Dance.
