I Hope You Dance Lee Ann Womack With Lyrics

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 Hellbent 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
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)

I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(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
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder, where those years have gone?)
