I hope you dance...
Its amazing how you find something that you really want (or sometimes need), just when(and where) you least expect it. It has happened to me many a times...
In law school, the boys hostel LAN always had, much as I hate to admit it, the better collection of music and movies (classics and otherwise!). We did manage to get some songs from the net and some more imported from the few generous boys. I could boast of possessing the best speakers in the hostel and a reasonably good collection of music...ranging from Indian classical instrumental to Bryan Adams....and some of Floyd's genre....and ofcourse, the old yet mushy and melodious hindi songs.....but something was always missing....
One morning, after class, I chose to surf the net (read chat with Ron) over my afternoon siesta...I had heard Shravya talk about some reallllllllly good song on the not so happening LAN...and how she thought that it was fanastic...she probably used all the flowery adjectives that she could, to praise the song....Knowing her, i didnt think i would really like the song that much, if at all...

Nonetheless,I found this song on the shared folder of this particular woman I could'nt stand (for various reasons), and for a matter of fact, still cant!
I loved the song...the lyrics of the song...the way it sounds....blah blah blah....so much so that I printed the song and pasted it on my otherwise neat and clean wall, just above the comp, so i could read it anytime i wanted!! I was so thrilled that I even went and thanked that woman for sharing that song!!!
It still cheers me up....this song was originally sung by a lady called Lee Ann Womack, and recently sung again by Ronan Keating...is titled 'I hope you dance'.
I hope you Dance
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You 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 dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’,
Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth makin’,
Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you 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....I hope you dance.
I hope you dance....I hope you dance.
I hope you 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)
