She Danced in the Sun



SHE DANCED IN THE SUN

image and lyrics by mjs

Nancy was fancy and crazy and drunk
Cried like the devil and laughed like a monk
She wandered and sauntered and stumbled along
She lay by a river and dreamt of a song
She lay by a river so cool to the touch
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much

Grace stared in space on the 39th floor
Her life lay in boxes that blocked the front door
She leaned out the window and sang to the sky
She lifted her arms, she never asked why
Her skin was like satin, so soft to the touch
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much

(chorus)
some will take wing
and soar in the night
some will walk earth
to do what they might
some will roam heaven
some will run free
basking in sunshine
they dance as they please

one lover
one lover
smiles in the sun

Ginny was skinny and blind and bereft
Her family as memory was all that was left
She walked with a dog and a map of the earth
She reached out her hands, for what it was worth
She reached out her hands, this life she did touch
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much

Monique was unique, and free as a bird
It’s anyone’s guess what music she heard
She bowed to the trees and swayed to the beat
Her eyes were like shadows that came to kiss me
She sang in the garden, and all she did touch
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much
She danced in the sun, she loved it so much

(repeat chorus)

one lover
one lover
smiles in the sun

(repeat chorus)

one lover
one lover
smiles in the sun
