This week’s song is in memory of my father. What I would do to have one more conversation, one more dance and one more laugh. I have peace knowing that I never let a day go by without telling my father that I loved him and I took the time on many occassions to thank him for being such a wonderful parent.
Take the time to tell the people you love that you love them. Don’t assume that tomorrow they will be there and you will have plenty of chances to let them know how you feel. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.

Happy Friday!
What songs are you listening to this week?

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 ’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

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, yea yea
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

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
