"THE DANCER"

I wanted to take her hand and to dance,
But I was afraid she would not understand. -Uh, huh.
I wanted to take her hand and to dance.

Verse 1 [Girl:]
Slipping from view into the night,
Darkness closing in on me.
You came out of the shadows into sight,
And a chance of hope came suddenly.
Help me, I'm falling ...

Chorus 1
I wanted to take her hand and to dance,
-[To move in the light,]
But I was afraid she would not understand.
-[She'll be all right.]
I wanted to take her hand and to dance.

Rap Section [Boy:]
When you move, your body's looking free
The way I know your spirit wants to be.
Everybody wants your body,
But they don't see you're fighting off depression,
Needing more than passion's expression.
Dance it off, you try to dance it off, a cocktail sipping,
But you know you're slipping, sliding, hiding,
You could be gliding to ecstasies
That will thrill 'til the climax,
Fill your heart with all it needs, but lacks.
You know there's more, much more than you realize.
He'll open your eyes, makin' you see,
Makin' you free, free as the birds,
And you won't need magic's luck,
When you find and suck the words.
So kiss them, caress them, take them deep inside,
Because His Spirit is them,
Who alone can make you whole-Lover of your soul.
Long and strong is how He's gonna hold you,
Sure and secure, when His arms enfold you,
Who alone can make you whole-Lover of your soul.

Interlude: ---[Repeat]

Ah, dance it off, you try to dance it off.-
You try to dance it off. You try to dance it off.
You try to dance it off.

Verse 2 [Girl:]
But I see there's something different in your eyes.
Ooo, I wanna know, are you there for me?
Help me, I'm falling ...

Chorus 2
I wanted to take her hand and to dance,
-[to move in the light,]
But I was afraid she would not understand.
-[She'll be all right.]

Chorus 3
I wanted to take her hand and to dance,
-[To help her to see]
The pathway to Heaven and give love a chance,
-[to set her free.]
I wanted to take her hand and to dance.

Dance it off! You try to dance it off. [Repeat]

Verse 3
[Girl:] You came out of the shadows into sight.
Yeah, I wanna know, are you there for me?
Help me, I'm falling!
------
Help me I'm falling!-

[Boy:]
To help her see Heaven and give love a chance.-
I wanted to take her hand and to dance.
