With Richard Marx, Vandross wrote the song based on his personal experience. The lyrics recall childhood memories with Vandross’ father, who used to dance with him and his mother.

Despite the lack of promotion due in part to Vandross’ hospitalization, “Dance with My Father” became one of the most requested songs at the time. During the 2004 Grammy Awards, “Dance with My Father” earned Vandross the Song of the Year and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance accolades.

Back when I was a child
Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother and me
And then
Spin me around ’till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure
I was loved
If I could get another chance
Another walk
Another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
How I’d love love love
To dance with my father again
When I and my mother
Would disagree
To get my way I would run
From her to him
He’d make me laugh just to comfort me
yeah yeah
Then finally make me do
Just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet
Never dreamed that he
Would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance
One final step
One final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
‘Cause I’d love love love to
Dance with my father again
Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how mama would cry for him
I’d pray for her even more than me
I’d pray for her even more than me
I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send her
The only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But Dear Lord
She’s dying to dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep
And this is all I ever dream
