about

This song is about Eternal Love: meeting your sweetheart when you're young, dancing through life and then dancing in the hereafter.

lyrics

YOU LOOKED AT ME SLOWLY
THEN TURNED AWAY FAST
I SAW YOU SO LOVELY
WITH SOMETHING TO ASK

YOU KNOW I CAN DANCE, DANCE
SO GIVE ME YOUR HAND, YOUR HAND
AND DANCE
JUST GIVE ME YOUR HAND

YOU KNOW THAT OLD STORY
A GUY MEETS A GAL
AND INTO THAT OAK TREE
A HEART CARVED TO TELL

THAT HE HAS HIS CHANCE, A CHANCE
TO ASK FOR HER HAND, HER HAND
SO OFF THEY CAN DANCE
AND OFF SO THEY DANCE

TWO LIVES WORTH OF LOVING
BUT KNOW NOW
OUR BODIES ARE GONE

THEN DOWN AT THE OAK TREE
WE MEET AND THEN PUT ON THIS SONG
SO THEN WE CAN DANCE
JUST FLOAT OFF AND DANCE

AND OFF SO WE DANCE, WE DANCE
A LIFE TIME ROMANCE, ROMANCE
OFF SO WE DANCE, DANCE, DANCE
FOREVER WE DANCE

“I’m a guy who sings stories; I’m not this remarkable guitar player, incredible singer, or unbelievable songwriter-I’m not any of those things. I’m just a guy who does all of those things and enjoys them a lot.”
That aside, Wils’ live performances have become legendary. One such performance was written up by the Calgary Sun as having so much "power and soul it could stop your heart."
