Dance Away the Tears
Written By: Bob DeYoung and Mitch Collins

She took the news much harder than me
When the Doc said one more winter is all you might see
Results showed a decline at such a fast rate
I figured there were things that just couldn’t wait

So we took a Sunday ride in our Chevy Bel Air
Sat on the front porch in her favorite chair
I grabbed my guitar and played her song
She moved to the music and hummed along

No time for tears when we’re holding on tight
To the ones we hold dear in this beautiful life
Let’s laugh out loud, look back on the years
Let’s dance till we drown all of our fears
Yeah, dance away the tears

I’ll miss the fog covered valley off Lookout Mountain
Standing in the rain while the thunder is pounding
Reminds me of our first kiss, at Middleton Lake
When that storm blew in, bout’ blew us away

Now it’s warm cups of coffee, sharing a blanket or two
Those back porch mornings, easin’ all we’ve been through
We both know what’s coming, cause life ain’t fair
But when we’re together feels like floating on air

No time for tears when we’re holding on tight
To the ones we hold dear in this beautiful life
Let’s laugh out loud, look back on the years
Let’s dance till we drown all of our fears
Yeah, dance away the tears

Listen, hear my voice, calling in the thunder
Feel me, know I’m here, in the falling rain

No time for tears when we’re holding on tight
To the ones we hold dear in this beautiful life
Let’s laugh out loud, look back on the years
Let’s dance till we drown all of our fears
Yeah, dance away the tears, yeah dance away the tears
