Dancin' Life Away

Listen and download the song, free, here.

I wrote this one a long, long, time ago.  It bounced around my mind for a long time, and finally settled in.  A few years ago, I was in a band, Random Tangent, and we did a version of it. 

It's kinda about how people get wrapped up in their own way of living their lives without the gospel, and they're just dancing along in that groove and never realizing the joy they could find.

Dancin’  Life Away
By Mark Hansen 

She's a young girl
The streets took their toll
Tryin' to sell her body
she's already sold her soul
She's dancin'--dancin' her life away

He's a young man
a rag on his head
somebody doesn't like the color
now he's sure he'll end up dead
he's dancin--dancin his life away
dancin--dancin his life away

All the people dancing in the street
All the people trying to find a beat
All the people lost along the way
All the people dancing their lives away

There's a businessman
lonely at the top
tried so hard to make it
doesn't know where it will stop
he's dancin--dancin his life away

There’s a lady
tipsy on her toes
her hands are tight around the bottle
not so steady as she goes
she's dancin--dancin her life away
dancin--dancin her life away


Tryin’ to make it
tryin’ so hard to please
but If you want to stand
You’ve got to get down on your knees

It’s a busy day
To and fro and fro and to
Some how I dance on by
and I don’t reach out to you
I’m dancin--dancin my life away
dancin--dancin my life away

Drums: Steve Hill
