Song Description

Ponders the notion of unplanned departure from the living, Reflects on the things that have really come to be valued in one's life.

Story Behind the Song

I used to travel back and forth to Europe fairly regularly. The flights usually left in the late afternoon or early evening, pass into nighttime fairly quickly, and last 7-8 hours. In the darkened cabin, peering out at the darkened sky, pondering the delicate balance of forces at work, and family ...

Broadjam Member Reviews

This was a sweet little mix of 60's rock, country and older pop music. It was catchy and simple. I liked it. It was a cute song.

Dance Your Days Along
c T. C. Ballister

Well, I sit on this Jet Liner
Suspended over the Sea,
Thinking 'bout my family
And what they mean to me.

You know, I just can't help considerin'
The possibility
That this old ship its just a blip,
It could vanish indefinitely.

Who would watch over you?
Who would tickle you with songs?
Who'll do his worryin' late at night,
And Help You Dance Your Days Along?

Oh sweet child the day that you were born
We kissed your sweet round face,
And we brought you home that puppy dog
That you would someday chase.

Oh the hope the dreams I have for you
Are ever in my head,
And I'm smilin' as I think of you
Tucked safely in your bed.


Oh my Love the day we married
We danced that whole day through.
Now I worry I don't make you laugh enough
To keep your spirit true.

I know I'm driven and preoccupied
With things I'm tryin' to do,
But do you know the thing that drives me most
Is gettin' back to you?

I want to watch over you.
I want to tickle you with songs.
I do my worryin' late at night,
And Help You Dance Your Days Along.

I'll still be watchin' over you.
I'll try to tickle you through songs.
I won't be worryin' late at night,
I taught you to Dance Your Days Along.

I want you to Dance Your Days Along.
Please always Dance Your Days Along.
