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 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 mama and I would disagree to get my way I would run from her to him He'd make me laugh just to comfort me then make me do exactly what my mama said Later that night when I was asleep, he slipped a dollar under my sheet Never dreamed that he would be gone from me Sometimes I'd listen outside her door and I'd hear how my mama cried for him And 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 alseep and this is all I ever dream
