the dance lyrics – garth brooks

lookin’ back
on the memory of
the dance we shared
beneath the stars above
and for a moment
all the world was right
but 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
our lives
are better left to chance
i could have missed the pain
but i’da had to miss the dance

holding you
i held everything
and for a moment
wasn’t i a king
but if i’d only known
how the king would fall
hey who’s to say
you know i might have changed it all

and now
i’m glad i didn’t know
the way it all would end
the way it all would go
our lives
are better left to chance
i could have missed the pain
but i’da had to miss the dance

yes my life
it’s better left to chance
i could’ve missed the pain
but i’da had to miss
the dance
