Dance With Me lyrics

There at the table my daughter and I
Just ate the last of my mother's pie
It's the 5th of December and I act like I don't know
Where it is she wants to go
She pushed back a chair and took my hand
Come into the living room and put on my favorite band
Dad it's my birthday don't miss your chance
Ask my to dance

So I said dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again
Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again

Several years later my daughter and I
Can't get along no matter how hard I try
She got herself a boyfriend who lives on down our road
His intentions, I don't know
So on her birthday that same year
I went and put on that music she loved to hear
Said girl it's your birthday don't wanna miss my chance
And asked you to dance

So I said dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again
Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again

She turned her head and grabbed her coat
She didn't look back and she slammed the door
Took a bus down to Texas with that boy down the road
Had no idea that he'd leave her there alone
She was drinking her freedom and weather in the cold
Too stuborn to come back home
She finally got a job at a night time club
She was dancing on tables for men she didn't love
She thought if my daddy could see me now
He'd never take me back no way, no how
And how she longed to hear him say

Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again
Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again

Found out from her boyfriend who lived down the road
He left her in Texas and he moved back home
He had her address and I drove all night long
Just to fine that she was gone
It was 10 in the morning when I found out what she did
Left a note at the club, got in my car and drove home again
When she read it she cried alone
Hoped a bus and headed home
It was that note it read

Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again
Dance with me
Dance with me Jen
I'd love to feel you in my arms again
