Passion Céline Dion

Dance with my father
Length: 4:38
Language(s): Spanish
Credits: Marx, Richard / Vandross, Luther
Summary:
If only my mother and me could dance one more time with my father, as like when we were all together, all happy.
Notes:
Dance with My Father was the last album released by Luther Vandross before he died (on July 1st, 2005). The whole album but especially the title song were written in the momory of his late father, Luther Ronzoni Vandross. We can find this song on the So Amazing...An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross album. Must be very emotional for Céline to sing that song since she lost her father in November 2003.

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
Oh

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 mama 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
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
Yeah mmm mmm yeah

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
Oh yeah yeah

I know you don't do it usually
But dear Lord she's dying
To dance with my father again
