Album: The Hits


(5 measure intro)

Looking back, on the memory of
The dance we shared,
'neath the stars above
For a moment, all the world was right
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'd-a had to miss, the dance.

Holding you, I held everything
For a moment, wasn't I the king?
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'd-a had to miss, the dance.

It's my life, it's better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd-a had to miss, the dance.
