“I Hope You Dance” – made famous by LeeAnn Womack – is a beautiful reminder that we need to take time to see the beauty in our lives and appreciate the opportunities that we have. Robert had performed this song at some of his shows, and immediately suggested it for Lullabies from the Heart. This track features the Twin Cities vocalist, Aimée Lee.
“I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance”
Robert chose this song because it reminds us to take the time to dance – garden, sing, play, love – because “to be busy and to work hard and long is the epidemic of our world, and we need to take the time to enjoy life in whatever way we can.
