i wanna dance...

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 till 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 
I'd play a song that would never, ever end 
How I'd 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 
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me, yeah, yeah 
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 
I'd play a song that would never, ever end 
Cause I'd love, love, love to dance with my father 
again 


Sometimes I'd listen outside her door 
And I'd hear her, mama cryin' for him 
I pray for her even more than me 
I pray for her even more than me 


I know I'm prayin' for much too much 
But could You send back the only man she loved 
I know You don't do it usually 
But Lord, she's dyin' to dance with my father again 
Every night I fall asleep 
And this is all I ever dream
