cinderella (acoustic) lyrics – steven curtis chapman

“cinderella (acoustic)”

she spins and she sways
to whatever song plays
without a care in the world
and i’m sitting here wearing
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 dancing
oh, please, daddy, please?”

so i will dance with cinderella
while she is here in my arms
’cause i know something the prince never knew
oh, i will dance with cinderella
i don’t want to miss even one song
’cause 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 dancing
oh, please, daddy, please?”

so i will dance with cinderella
while she is here in my arms
’cause i know something the prince never knew
oh, i will dance with cinderella
i don’t want to miss even one song
’cause 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 glowing and telling us all they had planned
she says, “dad, the wedding’s still six months away
but i need to practice my dancing
oh, please, daddy, please?”

so i will dance with cinderella
while she is here in my arms
’cause i know something the prince never knew
oh, i will dance with cinderella
i don’t want to miss even one song
’cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
and she’ll be gone
