I started the dance. Riff 1 Riff 2

(Repeat Verse):
A little boy full of wide-eyed wonder
Footloose and fancy-free
But it would happen as it does for every dancer
That I'd stumble on a truth I couldn't see
And find a longing deed inside of me, Saying:

Chorus:
     I am the heart, I need the heartbeat. I am the eyes, I need the sight.

      And I see clearly, I am just a body, I need the life

Ab|-------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|---------------------------3------------5--------------|
Db|---------------------------3------------5--------------|
Ab|--5------------------------1------------3--------------|
Db|--5----------------------------------------------------|
(Repeat)

I move my feet, I go through the motions. But who'll give purpose to chance?
I am the dancer. I need the Lord of the Dance.

Riff 1 Riff 2

Verse 2:
The world beneath us spins in circles
And this life makes us twist and turn and sway
But we were made for more than rhythm with no reason
By the One who moves with passion and with grace
As He dances over all that He has made

Chorus:
I am the heart, He is the heartbeat. I am the eyes, He is the sight.
And I see clearly, I am just a body. He is the life.
I move my feet, I go through the motions, but He gives purpose to chance
I am the dancer, He is the Lord of the Dance.

(Play through 4x)

(3rd time) And while the music of His love and mercy plays
I will fall down on my knees and I will pray

Chorus:
I am the heart, You are the heartbeat. I am the eyes, You are the sight.
And I see clearly, I am just a body. You are the life.
I move my feet, I go through the motions, but you give purpose to chance
I am the dancer, You are the Lord of the Dance.


Just play Riff's 1 and 2 through the end of the song however long you want to
Also, I know SCC fingers the last two notes in riff 1 differently, but this sounds 
right. If you figure out what the actual fingering is, please tell me.
And riff 3 is meant to run directly into the next line. You should be hitting the open 
Db and the next chord almost simultaneously.
Any corrections are welcome. Hope this helps.
