When your daddy plays guitar,
You dance without a smile.
Kid you may not have great rhythm,
But you sure got style.
Just four years old and still it seems,
You've got it figured out.
When daddy sings, and then you dance,
The people clap and shout.

Cuz, you're my dancin' boy,
And it's so scary how you trust me.
Just one look from you,
And I come pouring out like wine.
Dancin' boy, I'm sure by now that you must see,
You're dancin' means much more to me,
Than any dream of mine.

Yes, I'm so proud when you are with me,
That my heart digs in my throat.
And when you stop to strut your stuff,
My eyes go all afloat.
And when I have to leave you home
As sometimes it must be.
I feel that with my leaving
I leave far too much of me.

Yes, you're my dancin' boy,
And it's scary how you trust me.
Just one look from you,
And I come pouring out like wine.
You're my dancin' boy,
I'm sure by now that you must see,
You're dancin' means much more to me,
Than any dream of mine.

You know the time will come my dancin' boy
When you're dancin' days are done,
And when daddy and his dancin' boy
Will have dwindled down to one.

You know the world will've taught you other steps
To match the march of time,
So you'll have to keep our dancin' days
Dancin' in your mind.

Yes, do your dancin' , boy,
Cuz it's so scary how you trust me.
Just one look from you,
And I come pouring out like wine.
Do your dancin' , boy.
I'm sure by now that you must see
You're dancin' means much more to me,
Than any dream of mine.


Harry Chapin is one of my favorite singers.

Thanks TK,
I forgot Harry Chapin. We hardly hear him anymore. Those are great lyrics about a Dad loving his son as we might have all hoped for.

This might become a thread to post lyrics of some wonderful songs. Music can be so soothing or just an emotional connection or an outlet. What about it guys?
Peace,
Dan

This is really obscure and came from a Canadian Beer commercial of all things. Actually it was an ad for Fosters beer in the Canadian market. It is done by the artist Coleman Wilde.It was very popular in Canada and if I can find a way to put a link to the song I will do it. The point is to feel good about who you are...It doesn't matter. It can be found on Limewire music downloads under Various artits do a name search for Coleman Wilde.

IT DOESN'T MATTER

it doesn't matter

It's a slow walk, the sideways glance
it's fast talk, you're take a chance
no two people gonna see it the same
take a look around

it's a country mob, it's the city beat
a sandy beach, or a small town street
no two places gonna feel the same
take a look around

where you're from, it doesn't matter
what you wear, it doesn't matter
the way you move, it doesn't matter
it doesn't matter how you cut your hair
it's what's inside that counts.
it's what's inside that counts.

it's a brand new style, it's a broken heart
the young girl's smile, it's a work of art.
no two people gonna see it the same
take a look around

the whispered word, it's a rock and roll band
a thunder night, you're clapping your hands
no two people gonna hear it the same
take a look around

where you're from, it doesn't matter
what you wear, it doesn't matter
the way you move, it doesn't matter
it doesn't matter how you cut your hair
it's what's inside that counts.
it's what's inside that counts.
it's what's inside that counts.

take a look around, it doesn't matter
take a look around, it doesn't matter
take a look around, it doesn't matter
the way you move, it doesn't matter
it doesn't matter how you cut your hair
it's what's inside that counts.
it's what's inside that counts.
it's what's inside that counts.....

how can you see into my eyes like open doors
leading you down into my core
where Iíve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

now that I know what Iím without
you can't just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

Bring me to life
(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

frozen inside without your touch without your love darling only you are the life among the dead

all this time I can't believe I couldn't see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
Iíve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
without a thought without a voice without a soul
don't let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

(Bring me to life)
Iíve been living a lie, thereís nothing inside
(Bring me to life)

"From The Inside"

I donít know who to trust no surprise
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts sift through dust and the lies
(Trying not to break but Iím so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

[Chorus]
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

Tension is building inside steadily
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts forcing their way out of me
(Trying not to break but Iím so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

[Chorus]
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

I wonít waste myself on you
You
You
Waste myself on you
You
You

Iíll take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you

Everything from the inside and just throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I wonít trust myself with you
You
You
