Lyrics:

On the bank of a Tennessee River

In a small Kentucky town

I drew my first breath one cold November morning

And before my feet even touched the ground

With the doctors and the nurses gathered 'round

I started to dance

I started to dance

A little boy full of wide-eyed wonder

Footloose and fancy free

But it would happen, as it does for every dancer

That I'd stumble on a truth I couldn't see

And find a longing deep inside of me, it said

I am the heart, I need the heartbeat

I am the eyes, I need the sight

I realize that I am just a body

I need the life

I move my feet, I go through the motions

But who'll give purpose to chance

I am the dancer

I need the Lord of the dance


-


I was eight years old when I decided to follow Jesus

I started down that road

Somebody told me that this path that leads to heaven

Will not be the easy way

Well I found that to be true

But I also found, I found out there's

No better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven

No other place I'd rather be

No better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven

No better place to be

Well I know this road has a final destination

But I also know that if we're only looking for the prize that's waiting

We'll miss so much along the way

Cause Jesus came to give us life in the here and now

And to show us that there's

No better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven

No other place I'd rather be

No better place on earth than the road that leads to heaven

No better place to be
