"I kid you not, I was listening to my playlist and The Dance came on and that's the thing," Clarkson explained. "I literally, it's not like your song, like a rip-off, but I literally wrote this whole thing therapeutically for me, and it's actually on my next album," Clarkson told Brooks. "It's the whole kind of come around...the little tag part is, ‘even though my heart is broken it was worth the dance anyway.'"
Finding Comfort In Dark Times
This song was therapeutic for her in the darkest hours of her divorce. God was definitely on the move when he provided Kelly comfort that He knew would speak to her heart. The Dance was written in 1990 and it became one of the most iconic songs by Garth of all time.
Most people assume the song is about a soured relationship. But Garth said it's more than that. It's about the bigger picture. It's about life. Indeed, isn't that the truth? Even when we are hurting in the middle of our present circumstances, God is holding us and leading us forward into the bigger picture of life. He sees the bigger picture from beginning to end.
