lyrics

My grandfather
He could make the world dance
With a smile he could light up any life
I know I’m lucky that I knew him at all
But on a night like this
It would be nice to know the secret of the way he smiled
I like to think that he could teach me, and I’d learn
But you can’t teach love, and so I
Want to go where the people know me
I want to sing where they already know my song
But if my grandfather was here with me
He would tell me that the song I’m singing’s wrong
He’d remind me that the greatest joy
Is bringing hope into a stranger’s eyes, and then
Calling them your friend, and so I
Look at all of the angry people
I look at them and I break
Because I know if more people only learned that smile
If no reason was enough to seal your mind
I know it’s not as if we’d all happy
But if the cost is kindness, just give in

He would call you friend

My grandmother says
That she told him that she’d never marry again
But his eyes just twinkled and he said:

“Dance, dance, dance, dance, my baby
Dance, dance, dance, dance, your whole life long
Dance, dance, dance, dance, my baby
Dance, dance, dance, dance, your rhythm strong”

I keep getting older
But I’m aging to your heartbeat
