came here to dance

lyrics

we came here to dance
in the presence of our friends
to lift up our hearts
in motion entranced
and we came here to dance
emboldened emblessed
not to pine for the past
at another day's end
not to fear for the future--
but the future's a mess
and today is a gas
and we came here to dance

we came here to learn
to move and adapt
if you don't have the skills yet
we can build us a skill set
curiosity is limitless--
it's fear that kills it
and when the nausea's upon us
we gotta get out and flaunt us
we gotta keep us an ember
and remember to remember
and take every chance
we gotta get out and dance
we gotta take every chance

I am not done growing
give me some room
drink some water
eat some food
hold a friend
growth doesn't end
write a song
grow 'til you're dead
dance how you can
and love how you move
love the moving body
and bask in the love
it's a world in every little bud
drink some water
grow 'til you're dead
I am not done growing
give me some room
drink some water
eat some food
hold a friend
growth doesn't end
write a song
grow 'til you're dead
grow 'til you're dead
grow 'til you're dead
grow 'til you're dead
grow 'til you're dead
