Yeah, we’re just alike, hey, ain’t we, dad?
I wanna do everything you do
So I’ve been watching you.”

As she fumbles up those stairs
She smiles back at him
Draggin’ that teddy bear, sleep tight
Blue eyes and bouncin’ curls

There goes my future, my everything
I love you Daddy, good night
There goes my life””

In my daughter’s eyes”

As long as there’s still life in me
No matter what, remember, you know I’d always come for you

No matter what, remember, you know I’d always come for you
You know I’d always come for you.”

And a place in my heart will always be hers

And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first”

6. I Hope You Dance

You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance”

7. You Can’t Lose Me

“Momma use to say “Girl it won’t be long
‘Til it’s time to go out on your own
Chase your dreams find your place in life
I know you’ll do just fine”
When that day finally came
There were things she needed to but could not say
So I whispered softly as I wiped
The tears from Momma’s eyes
“You can’t lose me””

– Faith Hill

Sitting in a rocking chair in the middle of the night
In the quiet, in the dark
You’re stealing every bit of my heart with your daddy’s eyes
What a sweet surprise”

Chase your dreams, but always know the road
That’ll lead you home again
Go on, take on this whole world
But to me you know you’ll always be
My little girl”

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too”

– Rascal Flatts

Just close your eyes and I’ll be there
Listen to the sound
Of this old heart beating for you
Yes I’d miss you
But I never want to hold you down
You might say I’m here for you”

– Neil Young

Beats so damn quick when you say my name
When I holding you tight
I’m so alive”

Is you, oh”

Your eyes might be green
Or the bluest that I’ve ever seen
Anyway, you’ll be blessed”

Butterfly fly away”

Oh, please, Daddy, please”
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms”

The beating heart inside me
Crumbled at this one so new”

Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right”
