Graceful Dancing
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Describe the pain
That choked your reality
It's all in your mind, he says
You've got to go graceful dancing
I close the door on the war
I started last Halloween
I'm gonna be fine again
Just keep graceful dancing, no

Chorus:
But here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
I'm looking over your shoulder
Getting older, and God only knows
That here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
Here we are

A sunset rains like a bullet-hole
Trees only seem for hanging
A moon is a target range
And rivers seem only for drowning
You ball the blame
And then you starve to finish your painting
It's gonna take time, my friends
You have to keep graceful dancing, no

Chorus:
Here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
I'm looking over your shoulder
Getting older, and God only knows
That here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
Now, here we are

Oo oo-oo, oo oo oo, oo-oo
Oo oo oo, oo-oo, oo-oo-oo oo-oo
Oo oo oo, oo oo oo
Who knows

Chorus:
Here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
I'm looking over your shoulder
Getting older, and God only knows
That here we are
And you're a superstar on your own
Now, here we are

Oo-oo
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
Hey, it's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
It's what I've gotta keep telling myself
Sometimes Justin sings "You've got to go graceful dancing" both times in the first verse.

"This song's about believing in yourself.  Sometimes I have a really hard time doing that..."

-Justin at Fitzgerald's 01-12-01

This song is a staple of live 5591 and even Blue October performances, and the small words get changed around a bit, but nothing important.  It's one of Justin's mom's favorites, according to a 2005 5591 show.
