Joe McElderry – Dance With My Father 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

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door,
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I'd pray for her even more than me,
I'd pray for her even more than me, oooooooohhhhhhhh,

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 usally,
But dear lord she's dying, to dance with my father again
