THE TRUE MEANING OF COMMITMENT

Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

Dance With Me To The End Of Love

"Dance Me To The End Of Love"

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Jewel,
Per your requested it has been posted. I grew up in the late 30's, 40's and 50's to the music of those times -- Big Band, Jazz. You know -- the good old times. I appreciate your comment here and on American Digest.

I grew up in the 70s. My father forced us to listen to classical and jazz. Best gift ever. I passed on the same musical requirements to my kids, and as they were growing up, finding their own styles to like, I listened to their music too. I can honestly say that the best times of my life as a parent were spent with my kids appraising their music, and listening to them listen to Debussy and Brahms and Vivaldi....freely, by choice. I think if you crawl inside my brain and listen to my synapses, you will hear this:
