Dance With My Father

07 Mar

It’s a brief post bout a song called Dance With My Father. Thing song was first popularized by Luther Vandross. Yesterday I heard this song again when I was having a final test of my english course (which was free due paid by my office).

We had to fill words in the blanks as a listening test. Unfortunately I only had 90% correct words. It meant that I had two incorrect words.

This song thrilled me when I was trying to sing it. It rang my bell bout death also. Just read the lyrics here:

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
Spend 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 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
Cause I’d love love love to dance with my father again

Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
I’d hear how my mother cried for him
(2x) 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

I remembered how my mother missed my late father so much. Probably this song describes best bout it.

Anyway, hopefully that the english course (paid by my office also of course :D) will continue in higher level such as IELTS class. I’d love to attend it frequently. Hahahahaha frankly that I had less enthusiasm in my previous class. It was because of so old-school-kinda-classroom. You know, when the teacher speaks more dominantly than the students is so boring. Thus, I skipped alot lately 😛
