Dance With My Father~Luther Vandross

Luther Vandross在2003年出了這張專輯【Dance With My Father】,獻給他在天上的父親,他的父親在他八歲的時候過世,源於家族性的糖尿病,他則在2005年過52歲生日的前四天,因糖尿病引發的中風而過世。
這張也是他所發行的最後一張專輯,【Dance With My Father】勇奪年度最佳歌曲。


我想在幼年失去父母的,想必在這輩子都期望為他們再做點什麼。若女兒是父親上輩子的情人,那我想父親應該就是兒子的最佳心靈導師和朋友。不管現在你的父親在不在身邊,都希望能感念並獻上ㄧ句,爸爸,父親節快樂!

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 'til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved
當我還是個孩子
在那保有天真的歲月裡
父親會將我抱得高高的
與我母親ㄧ起跳著舞
父親會抱著我轉圈,直到我入睡
然後把我抱上樓
我很清楚我是被愛的

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
如果我還有一次機會
與他一起散步、與他共舞
我會放一首永遠不會結束的曲子
我是多麼想
再跟父親跳一次舞

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
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
當我不想聽母親話的時候
我總會跑到父親的身邊
他會逗我開心,安慰我
最後讓我心甘情願地照我母親的話去做
那ㄧ晚在我睡覺的時候
他在我的床單下放了ㄧ塊錢
我從來沒有想過 父親會離開我

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
如果我還能再看父親ㄧ眼
再邁出ㄧ步,再跟父親跳最後ㄧ支舞
我會放一首永遠不會結束的曲子
我是多麼想
再跟父親跳ㄧ次舞

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me
有時候我會在母親的門外
聽見她思念父親的哭聲
我常為她不停的祈禱
我常為她不停的祈禱

I know I'm praying for much too much
But could you send back 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
我知道我祈求得太多
但您能不能把她今生唯一深愛的男人還給她?
我知道您通常不會這麼做
可是親愛的上帝
她是如此渴望再和我的父親共舞阿

Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream
每晚入睡時,我都是這麼夢想著
