Petra - Dance Lyrics

[Based on 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 2 Timothy 3:14, Philippians 1:6]

I've been to the party and I left alone
And I've danced with a few that I'd be better off on my own
I've been to the altar and I know I kneeled
But I ended up dancing in the grass of another field
Then someone told me I heard someone say

Dance with the one who brung ya
Dance with the one you know who got you there
Dance with the one who brung ya
Don't change hats, you know it's the one you wear

My feet start moving down inside my shoes
But I don't want to settle for the beat of a lonely blues
And there's no use dancin' to a different drum
When I've seen what happens and I know what will become
I can testify it's never worth a try

I looked high, I looked low
You're never gonna find someone who loves you so
Stand tall, stand strong
You're only gonna see you're right where you belong

Don't try to fix what has never been broke

    guess you wouldn't care for Avantasia's the Mystery of Time where an agnostic scientist is confronted with time and eternity.

  40. Ben Quebec

    Thank you for posting this. I recently downloaded the "Unseen Power" album from iTunes, and I was disappointed to find that my copy of "Unseen Power" had an acoustic version of this song instead of the original. The acoustic version is okay, but I missed the original. :-)

  41. Marci Chaney

    This Band is clean and talks about the Lord and young people should listen to it . stop buying other bands who are Christian like I'm.

  42. Phil Mante

    Love that bass on the second riff.

  43. Jennifer Pruitt

    ever considered publishing a book of poetry? you got mad skills!

  44. Jennifer Pruitt

    secular rock fans have their devil horns hand motion. we christian rock fans have what i call the "one way" thake your index finger of either hand or both and point it towards heaven. simple

  45. Jennifer Pruitt

    i tend to agree w/ that...
