cinderella lyrics – steven curtis chapman

[verse 1:]
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 dancin’
oh please, daddy, please!”

[chorus:]
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

[verse 2:]
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!”

[chorus:]
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

[verse 3:]
but 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 dancin’
oh please, daddy, please!”

[chorus:]
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
