Summer Dance

by Jimmy Lo (James Lortie) Amateur

SONG LYRICS

When I knew that it was time to say goodbye
To everything I was, it was time to go because
There’s nothing in this world that could have led me
Quite this way

And every tear that I could have had
Was thrown to the past
Left there in the wild from when I was a child
Cuz there’s nothing in this world that I let
Lead me astray

I took a chance, now I belong
And I danced, danced all summer long

And now it’s your time to say goodbye
And bask in the sunlight, become the night, the star bright
Cuz there’s nothing that you were or what you’ve done
That matters any more

So take a chance, now you belong
And just dance, dance all summer

You know that you have found it
Know that you have found your love, your calling
When you can dance, dance all summer long
And when you know that you have found it
Don’t let it go, don’t drown it
Swim it to the shore forever more
And just dance, dance all summer long

We don’t hold back, won’t stand down
We just dance, dance all summer long
And we don’t care what the people say
We just dance, dance all summer long
We took a chance now we belong
And we danced, danced all summer long

DESCRIPTION
I worked in summer camps for 20 years (the last 9 with intellectual disabilities). As a child I was bullied a lot, and summer camp gave me a place to finally be myself when I was 18. I felt like I finally belonged somewhere.
