Lyrics

I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
but she's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change

And I've done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hand
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe itâ??s got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Ooh, you see that skin?
It's the same she's been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she's left
cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

Boys, you can break
You find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without warmth from
A woman's good, good heart

On behalf of every man
looking out for every girl
You are the god and the weight of her world

So fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too
So mothers be good to your daughters, too.

mylin33 says...
I'm using this song for our father/daughter dance.
I just love it!
You can hear the song on you tube

Jzepol82 says...
I love John Mayer and this song, but the song is about a girl who was abandoned by her father as a child and who has trouble with relationships as an adult.

Alexandrea says...
Jzepol82, i'm wondering if it would be an insult to dance with my father to this song. He was abusive to me growing up and we have somewhat mended our issues but we are not close. should i even dance with my father? have him give me away?

Ali says...
Alexandrea, I understand. I had a similar relationship with my father and we're still (slowly) trying to work on things. I just hope that for one day we can put aside our problems and dance together. Maybe through that we'll become closer.

valerie says...
This is a beautiful song! im using it for my father/daughter dance and just having my DJ remove the 2nd verse & chorus & skipping to the boys u can break overture

Bri says...
Alexandrea. I know my opinon doesn't really count for anything since you don't know me, but your father loves you very much. He had a difficult time and the fact that he's trying to make it up to you shows that he's never given up on you. Fathers are a special thing. I was gunna have my uncle give me away at my wedding but now i'm reconnecting with my dad and I couldnt be more happier. He's giving me away at my wedding, because HE'S my father. Just like your dad is your father. You should dance with him and have him give you away. Life is too short for that. Just forgive and try to mend

Jo says...
My dad left , and isn't on the right path, he will not be at our wedding, I'm danceing to this song with my Father in law who is more than a dad to me.

Carrie says...
Oh Valerie! I like that idea! was thinking about this song but had reservations because of the second verse as my dad and I have always been SUPER close (my dad is kinda my hero.)

MARIA says...
perfect song possible for father daughter dance this or Butterfly Kisses

Anonymous says...
I'm not close at all to my father either. I'm walking down the aisle alone but am still having a father/daughter dance. I think this song is perfect for us (especially when the second verse is cut out). I wanted something that wasn't too sweet and personal because it would feel like a lie but not something so vague people wondered why I picked it.

Tonya says...
This is the song for me and my daddy....I love it so much even before I got engaged I said this would be the song I dance to with my daddy I have always been a daddy's girl and this says it all because I have 2 daughters an 2 sons.

Tonya says...
OMG .... I'm so sorry for my post I dident read all of them I feel so bad now ... they all brought me to tears once again I'm so sorry....I wish you all could of had a good father that is one thing a girl needs but I truly hope and pray you all mend what you need to and ask God for help and he will give it to you......Have fun planning them weddings.... and once again I'm sorry.
