Dance Into The Light

An Original Song by Robert Lamm and Keith Howland

“In the late 90’s – early 2000’s, Keith and I got together to write a couple of songs for the next Chicago album. This was a problem. After the “Night & Day” and “Chicago 25” albums, there was at least a half dozen Best Of, Greatest, Re-Packaged, albums.
There was obviously little interest from radio or any major record company for new Chicago music. Our management was working very hard to keep our profile current. Fortunately we could still perform convincingly and with commitment. “Chicago Live”
To a certain degree, the band members did not agree on the viability of recording new music. Even with the advent of “Indie” record companies, there was lack of understanding that this required self-financed projects. Keith and I were of the mind that we should not stop making music, whatever the cost.
This is the point of the lyric.”
– Robert Lamm

 

 

DANCE INTO THE LIGHT

I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE
DON’T WANT TO COMPROMISE MY SOUL TODAY
I DON’T WANT TO WASTE MY TIME
THE PRICE THE DEVIL TELLS ME I MUST PAY
WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR TOO LONG
FOR US TO LET IT BE THIS WAY

 

WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
IF OUR LUCK HOLDS OUT
I KNOW WE’LL BE ALRIGHT
WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
DANCE INTO THE LIGHT

 

I DON’T WANT TO SAY GOODBYE
I DON’T PRETEND TO ALWAYS KNOW WHAT’S RIGHT
I DON’T WANT TO RUN AWAY
(BUT) I’M NOT GOING DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT

 

WE COULD HAVE IT ALL FOR JUST A SONG
THINK ABOUT YOUR NIGHT AND DAY

 

WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
IF OUR LUCK HOLDS OUT
I KNOW WE’LL BE ALRIGHT
WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
DANCE INTO THE LIGHT

 

I’LL SHOW YOU. LET ME SHOW YOU
JUST GIVE US A CHANCE
YOU WILL BELIEVE AGAIN

 

WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
IF OUR LUCK HOLDS OUT
I KNOW WE’LL BE ALRIGHT
WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
REMEMBER WHEN IT ALL WAS NEW
AND IT WAS SO EXCITING
WE CAN DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
DANCE INTO THE LIGHT
