Lyrics

Golden gate, watch the waves as they rise and fall

With the sand at her feet every woman girl here can recall

The inaugural dance happened here on this very shore

Isadora, the wind remembers your story

When you dance Isadora the wind remembers your story

 

Then Valentine Baby came filling this dance with her life

She stood on the same shore, the same rays of sun that gave

Isadora her light

So she could preserve the same gesture, the same choreography

To unwind the feet that were bound up throughout all our history

Of the dance

She remembered the dance

 

Then the music from Schubert and Brahms came upon the dance floor

And the dance gave to her what the song gave the troubadour

Mignon did the dance like the one on this very shore

Isadora, the wind remembers your story

When you dance Isadora the wind remembers your story

 

So learning to dance began just when I learned how to run

Keep your eyes to the sky and raise both your arms above

Praising the sun

When I was three all I thought about was how to leap above that red scarf

Now I realize that my sister and I are the keepers of that same love

Of the dance

We remember the dance

 

If you gather around in a circle and lift up your hands

See the only thing in between us now is the dance

You’ll say silken scarves are the wings that I’ve found

And my roots grow in the buttercups here on the ground

You’ll remember the dance

 

Golden gate watch the waves as they rise and fall

With the sand at her feet every woman girl here can recall

The inaugural dance happened here on this very shore

Isadora, the wind remembers your story

When you dance Isadora the wind remembers your story

I remember the dance

I remember the dance

I remember your dance
