Dancing In The Mine Fields


I was nineteen, you were twenty-one

The year we got engaged

Everyone said we were much too young

But we did it anyway

We bought our rings for forty each

From a pawn shop down the road

We made our vows and took the leap

Now fifteen years ago

We went dancing in the minefields

We went sailing in the storm

And it was harder than we dreamed

But I believe that’s what the promise is for

“I do” are the two most famous last words

The beginning of the end

But to lose your life for another I’ve heard

Is a good place to begin

‘Cause the only way to find your life

Is to lay your own life down

And I believe it’s an easy price

For the life that we have found
And we’re dancing in the minefields

We’re sailing in the storm

This is harder than we dreamed

But I believe that’s what the promise is for

So when I lose my way, find me

When I loose love’s chains, bind me

At the end of all my faith, till the end of all my days

When I forget my name, remind me

‘Cause we bear the light of the Son of Man

So there’s nothing left to fear

So I’ll walk with you in the shadow lands

Till the shadows disappear

‘Cause he promised not to leave us

And his promises are true

So in the face of all this chaos, baby,

I can dance with you
