Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Are You Someone's Cinderella? - 4Ms #Music

Inside I'll always be that little girl trying to grow up. I feel it everyday. As I get older, I'll be the wise little girl. Waiting to be someone's Cinderella.

Are you Someone's Cinderella? Have you been Someone's Cinderella?

Join our meme and share your favorite tunes.

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”
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”

    Have a fantabulosa week :-)

    1. Thank you Steve.
      And you have a wonderful week also.

  2. What a sweet song; just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Callie, this is a new one for me, but oh so pretty! Thanks for the introduction! You so rock! Have a great day Mama & I'm still waiting to see your baby girl's picture of that all nighter hairdo! :) Hugs & have a rockin' week!

    1. Haha yes. I'm such a late poster on personal stuff.
      I'll share soon Doll! Thank you.

  4. What a sweet song! Really hits home to me since my oldest daughter will be getting married next month.

    1. Thank you Danielle.
      And happy family time with your daughter.

  5. What a beautiful song.

  6. An inspiring song; makes me miss my father.


  7. No Cinderella here, but it's okay. I'm too old to rock glass slippers anyway, and I like my husband pretty good, even though I'm no princess and he's no Prince Charming (of course, I don't tell him that ;) ). :)

    The song is a really good one!

    1. Haha. I imagined you saying all that in the most Southern of accents Rosey :)

  8. lovely tune - new to me. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are off to a fabulous week

    1. Thank you Stacey.
      It should go well if I release control to God :)

  9. beautiful song. very emotional for me because I don't know my real dad at all. but my step dad is an awesome man, who although he came to me later in life, has been a Prince. restored my faith in men.

    1. That's how I feel about this song too Rory.
      I have not met my father either. He walked away from my mom when he found out she was pregnant.
      I ...guess I'd still like to know him. What kind of person he is now.

  10. Maybe. I'm wearing a raggy nightgown that is in such bad shape that I don't care if the puppy chews on the bottom of it. Although I hope I'm stronger than Cinderella. She is the wimpiest character known to fairy tales--Oh, rescue me prince because I can do nothing on my own. Great song, by the wy.

  11. I am lucky to have had my own wonderful dad in my life, as well as a wonderful stepfather. Though it may be for different reasons, I, too, will always feel like a little girl trying to grow up on the inside.
