The Dance

iconoclast

The Dance moves in all of us. It’s our inner nature, our link to the universe, and greatly submerged and denied.
The Dance:

   The dance commences, 
      pulse fills our senses,
To lead us to where we begin.
    Our blood , it infuses,  
    its song, stirs and looses,
Icy fire through soul and skin. -

The moon could rise, through changing mists,
To create a world of alternates.
Where dreams come real, and thoughts persist.
Its light divides, and colors twists.
Till the darkness comes alive, with hungers long denied. -

The dance unwinding, prisons unbinding,
Souls winging, skin to skin.
        The souls symphony, 
      played soft and achingly,
By lips that seek the burning hymn. -

The moon could rise, through changing mists,
To create a world of alternates.
Where dreams come real, and thoughts persist.
Its light divides, and colors twists.
Till the darkness comes alive, with lovers long denied.

Bridge:
Listen, to the whispers of the souls,
captives to the cold
Dancing to their dreams,

and the subtle fire
Fills the night, the song, the unspoken needs
Brings them all to life,
lovers long denied

    The dance still calling, 
   though deep night’s falling
And the stars whirling sweep.
    Our senses hear the sound, 
    and seek the love unbound
And the dances steps unfailing keep 
Uploaded .

Oh, yeah, and my toes curl when you say anything good about my vocals (kidding) The dance was one of those songs I made it up as I sang it. The bridge was a total surprise, to me and to Steve, when I sang it. You know how it is? A song I’d never heard before, a melody I’d never sung before, came belting out words and all. Man was I thankful I don’t practice without the record light shining! Background vocals: Oh god thanks for the comments there. Huge stretch for me. I did them all myself, except for the heavenly female high end part (Done by Wendie Gipson)There are actually something like three more parts, but I had to start wrapping things up for the challenge. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart

Thanks for the comments on this one, everyone. This my RPM “preferred” track. My first “reverse” collaboration. Steve Buzzell brought me the music as classical guitar and piano. I walked around with it for months, came up with lyrics and melody, sent it back to steve and laid out that lead guitar. It was sweet, but to “passive”, so I ran his part through a guitar processor and “dirtied” (I wanted it as passion-wracked as the song is)it up. I hope he can forgive me. his guitar work is just so good, plus so intuitive. he gets what I need for the song. (His sax playing will just kill you).
