"The Dance"

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
Now 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
How our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Holding you, now I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king ?
If I'd only known how the king would fall
Now who's to say, you know I might have changed it all

So now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
How our lives are better left to chance, I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain ,but I'd have had to miss the dance
