Renato Russo — The Dance lyrics

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath 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 have had to miss the dance
Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king?
If I'd only known how the king would fall
Then 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've missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance
Yes, my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance
(Lyric by Tony Arata)
