Dancing with Dad!

Recommended Posts

Hey All!

 

Well all of these posts left me so inspired and excited, so my dad and I started talking about our ideas. He ended up suggesting the song "The face" by... I can't remember. lol

 

Anyway, it isn't very "daddy's Girl" which is perfect, because--although we are very close-- we aren't "daddy's little girl" close. Our relationship revolves very much around ideas, conversations, and life aspirations. So this song was perfect-- all about telling me he'll be there, whether I choose to take his advice or not.

 

I'm so excited, and he seemed really pleased that I liked his choice. One more check on the list!

My brother and SIL did this with a family dance for both sides, they used Angels Among Us, wow what a tear jerker, but it was so worth it as my mom and her dad couldn't be there with us.

I know it's a bit untraditional but I was thinking about using "Footprints in the Sand" by Leona Lewis. I have a good relationship with my dad but it's not like the Butterfly Kisses or My Little Girl kind of relationship. Ours is more of a respectful relationship and very much a friendship. Does anyone have any thoughts on this song? I am worried it might be more of a love song than anything- though it does talk about being there and being your friend etc. Here are the lyrics though I am sure everyone has heard the song:

 

You walked with me,

Footprints in the sand,

And help me understand,

Where I'm going,

 

You walked with me,

When I was all alone,

With so much unknown,

Along the way,

Then I heard you say,

 

I promise you,

I'm always there,

When your heart is filled

With sorrow and despair,

I'll carry you

When you need a friend,

You'll find my footprints in the sand.

 

I see my life flash across the sky,

So many times have I been so afraid.

And just when I, I thought I lost my way,

You give me strength to carry on,

That's when I heard you say,

 

I promise you

I'm always there

When your heart is filled

With sorrow and despair

And, I'll carry you

When you need a friend

You'll find my footprints in the sand.

 

When I'm with you,

Well I know you've been there,

And I can feel you when you say,

 

I promise you (you)

I'm always there

When your heart is filled (when your heart)

With sadness and despair (and despair)

I'll carry you when you need a friend (need a friend)

You'll find my footprints in the sand. (I promise you)

 

Ohh. (I'm always there)

 

When your heart is full of

Sadness and despair, (and despair)

I'll carry you when you need a friend. (I'll carry you)

You'll find my footprints in the sand.
