The World Was Dancing

This song is by Jason Robert Brown and appears on the album Songs For A New World (1997).

"Tomorrow you'll be here my love
Tomorrow we'll be one
Tomorrow we can follow through
On all that we've begun
Tomorrow we'll be free my love
We'll never be afraid"

Daddy bought a store out in Pittsburgh
And he called his boss and quit
And we tried to convince him
The risk was too much
But he still was convinced
Of his own Midas Touch
So he bought this piece of shit

I packed up and went off to Princeton
With a scholarship in hand
Well, I'd call up my folks every weekend or so
And I'd tell them how college was helping me grow
Which was just what they had planned

And then I met this girl named Amy
With a smile as bright as day
And while the Pirates beat the Orioles
We fell in love and danced the night away

"Tomorrow we'll be free my love
We'll never be afraid"

And we were dancing
The world was dancing
Dancing

Daddy lost his shirt out in Pittsburgh
As my sophomore year rolled round
Well he had hired some schmuck
That he knew from the war
And one weekend he left him
In charge of the store
And he burned it to the ground

And then I met this girl named Lisa
On a couch at Alpha-Mu
But then she transferred to Macalester
So it's just as well that Amy never knew

"Tomorrow we'll be free my love
We'll never be afraid"

And we were dancing
The world was dancing
Dancing

Daddy got his job back that summer
So he hid his pride and pain
And they threw him a party
And baked him a cake
And they sent me a ticket
To come winter break
But I guess I missed the plane

And since I'd spent so long with Amy
We got ourselves engaged
But then I thought
I can't,
This can't be right
'Cause dreams get burned down overnight
I wasn't quite prepared to choose,
To take that risk and maybe lose
And since I couldn't tell her why
I hit the road
And never said goodbye

"Tomorrow you'll be here my love
Tomorrow we'll be one
Tomorrow we can follow through
On all that we've begun
Tomorrow we'll be free me love
We'll never be afraid"

And I was dancing
And they were dancing
The world was dancing
Dancing
