How We’ve Danced

These are lyrics to a tune that popped into my head on the way to work this morning. Can’t get it out of my brain now. And I’m wondering if it’s even my own tune. Ever do that? I have another one that my kids think belongs to some Disney movie but have no idea which. I think they’re havering but I can’t be sure because it feels familiar to me after singing it so many times. If I wake up humming it again, it’s mine.

What happened to the music while we danced

While we danced

What happened to the music while we danced

What happened to the graceful glide

The simple moves we didn’t hide

What happened to the music while we danced

What became of breathing while we danced

While we danced

What became of breathing while we danced

Where the fields of open doors

The honesty of earthen floors

What became of breathing while we danced 

Wherever did we go while we danced

While we danced

Wherever did we go while we danced

Disappeared like so much rain

Forgotten drops, fragmented pain

Wherever did we go while we danced

Shall we dance again in that old style, in a while

Shall we dance again in that old style

Elegant and erudite, embrace once more by kinder light

Shall we dance again in a while

What happened to that world where we danced

While we danced

What happened to that world where we danced

A simpler ball inside no walls

 One sky protecting one and all

What happened to that world after we danced

Oh, what happened to our world, how we’ve danced

  1. Very good momus, maybe your learning the art of listening to spirit 🙂
    Most of my ‘chats’ are at that very first inkling of waking up, I stay there and just put it out there or ask a question.
    But beware, sometimes its better than being awake when the beauty of that connection touches 😀

    1. I think it’s mostly when I’m not aware of thinking at all, Mark. 4a.m. is a favourite time, first thing in the morning, last thing at night or in the shower. Not really pondering anything then, pop!

      1. Perfect momus, 24 hr muse! 😀
        That is exactly what we all need to do…let go of everything AND spirit/Higher self etc can come through….you’ve got it down pat momus, an old hand at it with the frequency of your posts 🙂

    1. It only started with a line that just grew, Tric. By the time I got to school I had to sing it straight into my phone in case I would forget the words or the tune. It’s usually in the shower it happens and I’ve to keep repeating it till I can get to a pen.
