TIME OF THE DANCE
Patty Griffin


She could hear those words of her mama still

The talk of the ways and the always will be's

She'd laugh at the time and pretend to be free

But she'd never run far from the legacy

She's trying the wind like the crack of a whip

She places her fingertips up to her lips

She thinks of a feeling that she can't quite recall

And a few days when she'd been ahead of it all

She stepped past the clocks

She stepped high and wide

Strong and true to the other side

Kickin' away all the mud from her heels

To the time of the dance

To the second chance

To the dust and the hours passed under the wheels

Oh she stepped to the time of the dance

She says sometimes being a husband and wife

Feels like a fight against natural life

And that there is no bigger chain on your soul

And you're always dancing out in the cold

Sometimes the light hits the side of his face

And it fills up your heart like a soft embrace

She knows that the struggle is more than a day

More than the words that her mama could say

Well they stepped past the clocks

They stepped high and wide

Strong and true to the other side

Kicking away all the mud from their heels

To the time of the time

To the second chance

To the dust and the hours passed under the wheels

Oh they stepped to the time of the dance

She said turn off the tv

Hush all the sound

All you can hear is the rain

Just slip out the doorway

And let the rain fall down

Steal all the light brushing back to our ?????

Well we'll step past the clocks

Step high and wide

Strong and true to the other side

Kicking away all the mud from their heels

To the time of the dance

The second chance

Til the dust and the hours passed under the wheels

We'll step to the time of the dance

Oh we'll step to the time of the dance
