Song Description

When You Dance is a song written about a man watching a dancer perform. She could be a belly dancer, a modern dancer, a ballerina, a stripper, etc.. She could also be his girlfriend, his wife or someone he does not even know - but definitely wants and needs to know. As he watches her perform he is completely spellbound and enraptured by every part of her performance. She " brings him back around " when he is down and she makes " the shadows touch the sky " when is he is happy. The chorus sums up his delight: Oh When you dance--sparks begin to fly Oh When you dance--the shadows touch the sky Oh When you dance--that's the reason why: I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance We used a vast array of instruments to bring out the upbeat dance mood: guitars, charango (Andean / South American small lute), doumbek (Middle Eastern drum), zils (Middle Eastern castanets), bass, drums and lots of vocals.

Lyrics

In my darkest hour of my longest day
I can fight the power or I can turn away
When my heart is heavy and my spirit cold
You hit the stage and you touch my soul.

CHORUS
Oh When you dance--sparks begin to fly
Oh When you dance--the shadows touch the sky
Oh When you dance-- I know the reason why:
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance

When my joy is lost, and comfort can't be found
The way you move your hips will bring me back around
Tonight you may belong to the rhythm and the light
But when you dream I hold you tight

CHORUS
Oh When you dance--sparks begin to fly
Oh When you dance--the shadows touch the sky
Oh When you dance--that's the reason why:
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance

Bridge:
Shimmy and turning you drop to the floor
Turning and yearning the crowd calls for more!
Wishing and hoping you'd give me a chance
To join you in the dance
(Guitar solo)

Oh when you dance / Oh when you dance
Oh when you dance---sparks begin to fly
Oh when you dance---the shadows touch the sky
Oh when you dance--I know the reason why
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance
Oh when you dance--sparks begin to fly
Oh when you dance-- shadows touch the sky
Oh when you dance--I know the reason why:
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance
I fall in love with you each time that I see you dance
