Dancing With My Father by Luther Van Dross

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And (1)__________ 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 (2)________ that would (3)__________ ever end
How I'd love, love, love to dance with my father again, ooh
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 (4)________ night when I was asleep
He (5)________ a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one (6)__________ glance, one final step
One final dance with him
I'd play a (7)________ 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 (8)________ 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 (9)____________ and this is all I ever dream
