Jessica Sanchez – Dance With My Father Again lyrics

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 me and my momma would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my momma 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
Coz I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again.

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my momma cry for him
I'd pray for her even more than me
I'd 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...

And still I cannot move on. I will always be your little girl. I love you dad. I love you po :(

    I wish that my father didn't die because I really miss him so much. That, when I sing this song, I could reallly remember him after I move on from when he died. I was really happy before but, when we went to my father, instead of seeing him waiting for me, I saw inside a casket, look dead. I burst into tears, well my remembrance of him were his text messages, my surname, his cellphone (which he gave it to me), two of his handkerchiefs and, His only picture. Yea good thing there was still a picture left because if I don't have any pictures of him. I'll never see him again. When Mama said that, "Look at your father." I Looked at him, he was sleeping peacefully forever. : '(
