I started like it when I was listening to my friend’s playlist of Jessica Sanchez, the runner up of American Idol 2012. A song from Celine Dion, Dance With My Father. I have crush on its melody first, then its lyrics: beautiful.  

For my beloved Daddy, which is still here with us, still gimme his words, advises, and loves.. I say my thanks to Alloh..

Dance With My Father

Songwriters: Luther Vandross.

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
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 will 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 says

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, love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how my mama cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

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

I know You don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’s dying to dance with my father again

For me, the Sanchez’s version is more emotional, I don’t know why… How about you? 

Cheers
