Tear jerker Father/Daughter dance song

I haven't talked much about music on this blog. You are in luck... that is about to change!

I was watching the news and Steven Curtis Chapman was singing this song. It immediately made me think of father/daughter dance.

Although the meaning behind the song is very sad (and my prayers go out to the Chapman family), I think he would want his song to be used as something happy.

Here are the lyrics for you all, along with a video:

The song is called Cinderella.



She spins and she sways to whatever song plays,
Without a care in the world.
And I'm sittin' here wearin' the weight of the world on my shoulders.
It's been a long day and there's still work to do,
She's pulling at me saying "Dad I need you!
There's a ball at the castle and I've been invited and I need to practice my dancin'"
"Oh please, daddy, please!"

So I'll dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh I'll dance with Cinderella
I don't wanna miss even one song,
Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone

She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed
She wants to know if I approve of the dress
She says "Dad, the prom is just one week away,
And I need to practice my dancin'"
"Oh please, daddy, please!"

So I'll dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Ohh-oh ohh-oh, I'll dance with Cinderella
I don't wanna miss even one song,
Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone
She will be gone.

Well, she came home today
With a ring on her hand
Just glowin' and tellin' us all they had planned
She says "Dad, the wedding's still six months away
but I need to practice my dancin'"
"Oh please, daddy please!"

So I'll dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Ohh-oh ohh-oh, I'll dance with Cinderella
I don't wanna miss even one song,
(even one song)
Cuz all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone


Are you crying yet? Cuz I am! haha

Take care until next time,

My mom brought the song to me and I instantly knew that this would be my song for the father/daughter dance. Though I do have to admit that there is no way that I won't be a mess at the end of the song!

I love Steven Cutis!!! I'm planning for Matt and I to dance to his song, "I will be there" for our first dance. I haven't heard this song so I'll have to check it out!
