the Sweet November Rain...

Just pressing the rewind button for once,
for those footprints that we left on the sands of time ,
for the sandcastles that were drowned with the tide,
and for the times which were washed away in the rain ...
I'm just looking forward to looking back on these days...

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared
'neath the stars above..
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known
that you'd ever say goodbye ..

But now I'm glad I didn't know ..
The way it all would end,
the way it all would go ..
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain ,
But I'd have had to miss THE DANCE..

Holding you, I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king ...
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say? You know I might have changed it all ..

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end
the way it all would go ..

It's my life, it's better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss THE DANCE...

PS: The "dance" signifies more than the dance in the literal sense of the word...its a kinda metaphorical clause for the lives we lead...every time it punishes us with pain,it gives us another reason to live, and to live better...moments of hapiness are few n oft short lived.. The day we die,we'd not only miss the dance ,but we'll miss the pain ,and this whole world...

PS2: I'm not saying this is the only interpretation of this post...:P

one of ur best works till date!!
as Martha Graham put it- "Dance is the hidden language of the soul. "

well.. as u said.. the 'dance' here signifies life (n more!).. n sum1 rightly says...
"Life's a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Dont worry about what you dont know
Lifes a dance you learn as you go"

this is for 'the dance n the dancers..
"We dance for laughter,
we dance for tears,
we dance for madness,
we dance for fears,
we dance for hopes,
we dance for screams,
we are the dancers,
we create the dreams."

The best line was ..'But now I'm glad I didn't know ..'

'If I had one wish, I'd find a way,
I'd return to my younger days
and tell my youger self
It all turns out okay! ' :)

Good work!

hehe...thx a lot...
its actually quite true...the fact that life hurts u actually gives u d strength to face it the next day...
n yes,we all have th power to avoid somethings from going wrong,but i guess they wouldnt turn out to be that memorable if we take the road that winds around the other way...
