Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

Can I have this dance?I will do anything.
Give me the chance to learn how to love.
If you lead the way, I will try following.

Let Spirit be… the guiding force and the source the drives me,
the goal of my life and the light that shines through me;
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.

You take my hand. I step up slowly.
We take a stance and the music begins.
Step 1, 2, 3 in time with the rhythm.

Let Spirit be… the guiding force and the source the drives me,
the goal of my life and the light that shines through me;
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.

We twirl and we turn. We glide ‘cross the floor.
I’m beginning to learn the give and the take.
The melody sings, and my heart is listening.

Let Spirit be… the guiding force and the source the drives me,
the goal of my life and the light that shines through me;
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.

And the dance goes on because love is an infinite, heart-changing song.

Let Spirit be… the guiding force and the source the drives me,
the goal of my life and the light that shines through me;
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.

Let Spirit be… the guiding force and the source the drives me,
the goal of my life and the light that shines through me;
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.
the music that moves my feet as I dance this dance.
