The Dance
Words and music by Glyn Lehmann

Verse
She stands so still and silent
Like a sentry on a windswept hill
So patiently she's waiting
To come to life once more

With graceful arms extended
Reaching out into the brilliant blue
A yearning to embrace
Her partner in the dance

Bridge
(S) And with a breath, so it begins
(SA) And with a breath, so it begins
(SA) And with a breath, so it begins
(SA) And with a breath, so it begins
(A) So it begins

(S) Tentatively turning
(A) Turning, turning, turning
(S) Like a Dervish whirling
(A) Whirling, whirling, whirling

(S) Tentatively turning
(A) Turning, turning, turning
(S) Like a Dervish whirling
(A) Whirling, whirling, whirling

Pre-chorus
Turbines turning, never tiring
It's electric, electric!
Power surging, so inspiring
It's electric, electric!

Power from the wind comes from the sun
The choreographer of currents, ah

Chorus
(SA) As long as the sun shines in the sky
There'll always be an endless supply
Of power, clean power

(S) As long as the sun shines in the sky
There'll always be endless power, clean power
(A) As long as the sun shines in the sky
There'll always be an endless supply
Of power, clean power

(S) As long as the sun shines in the sky
There'll always be endless power, clean power
(A) As long as the sun shines in the sky
There'll always be an endless supply
Of power, clean power

Verse - reprise
She stands so still and silent
Like a sentry on a windswept hill
So patiently she's waiting
To come to life once more
