~ Dance With My Father ~





~ Dance With My Father ~

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me
And then spin me around til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

If I could get another chance
Another walk, another dance with him
Id play a song that would never, ever end
How Id love, love, love
To dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way, I would run from her to him
Hed make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do
Just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he
Would be gone from me

If I could steal one final glance
One final step, one final dance with him
Id play a song that would never, ever end
Cause Id love, love, love
To dance with my father again

Sometimes Id listen outside her door
And Id hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know Im praying for much too much
But could you send back
The only man she loved
I know you dont do it usually
But dear Lord shes dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream
