walk-dancing

“walk-dancing” 2016 – by Dawn-joy Leong.

Musing on proprioceptivity. Walking. Walk-dancing. Dance-walking. The journey.

(The shadows of a girl and a greyhound dog walking along concrete pavement. Girl softly singing at the beginning. Then the song, “Love,” fades in.)

Featuring the song, “Love,” by Dawn-joy Leong.┬áVocals by Arthur Sim & Dawn-joy Leong.

Love is a pearl of great price,
The hand of a friend by your side,
Commitments you make, the give and the take,
Each and every day of your life.

Love is pearl of great price,
Wrapped in the tears of sacrifice.
The paths that you take, decisions you make,
Each and every step of your life.

The stars in the night, the songs of the birds,
The soaring feeling inside…
But what of the times, the road gets so dark,
You can’t find your way in the night?

Love is a pearl of great price,
You sell all you have to buy.
The vows that you keep, the harvest you reap,
Each and every day of your life.

Love is a paradise found,
Where wonders abound,
Where hopes and dreams
Shine so bright!
But what of the storms, the battles that rage,
Your heart loses strengths to fight?

Love is a pearl of great price,
The hand of a friend by your side.
Commitments you make, the give and the take,
Each and every day of your life.

Love… Love is a pearl of great price.

Love is a pearl of great price,
You sell all you have to buy.
The vows that you keep, the harvest you reap,
Each and every day of your life.

Love is a paradise found,
Where wonders abound,
Where hopes and dreams shine so bright!
But what of the storms, the battles that rage,
Your heart loses strength to fight?

Love is a pearl of great price.
