You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger

    To me it means that when the opportunity knocks , take that leap of faith and take a chance. Move forward , don't look back and have faith that God will take you places that you never dared to dream . Have that positive outlook and DANCE!!!! There's something good in store for you. What an awesome song.

    This song is a great song which could help save someones life or give them information or a second chance to think about the decisions they make through out their lives. It can have many meanings such as love death ..etc but i think that it's mainly a life saver and counsellors should take this into consideration to help save their clients.

    I believe it's about two friends who almost became lovers. And in that split second everything change for them. And because of that they went their separate ways

    Never heard this song before, until yesterday at best friends funeral, a lady so full of energy, always happy, she never stopped working ,cooking, looking after everyone she just gave her all and enjoyed every minute of her life cut short by cancer, and last off the dance floor just weeks before, at her sons wedding. yes it all makes sense. Life is so short enjoy every minute we have been given x

    I love this song. My mom always sung it to me when I was little, so I would fall asleep. To me it means to live life at the fullest. When u get knocked down, get back up and dance. I cry every I hear this song.

    I Hope You Dance:)

    This is a song that tells how every moment changes... all we have to do is to be very active and energetic... whatever happens to our life, it may be sadness or happiness, always bring a smile and keep moving forward... for life is a constant change... just be positive...

    It is a song about living life from the standpoint of doing a dance...when life throws you curbs and twists as it will the author's desire is that we keep dancing. Dancing causes us to keep moving inventing new steps for every new beat. i love this song and i love dancing. Thi si what it means to me.
