Lyrics

Verse 1:
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you,
though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.

Chorus:
Your beautiful baby from the outside in.
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.

Verse 2:
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I've turned around and you've almost grown.
Sometimes you're asleep I whisper "I Love You!" in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, "Daddy Love You More!".

(Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3:
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won't say "yes" to him unless I know, he's the half
that makes you whole, he has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man.
I know he'll say that he's in love.
But between you and me. He won't be good enough!

(Repeat Chorus)

This song makes me cry everytime I listen to it.

Amber says...
I had a hard time finding a song that was perfrect for my father daughter dance at my wedding, then I herd this song and I know it is perfect for me and my dad. Only because the dad I am having walk me down the aisle is not my real dad by blood but he is my real dad because he raised me and treated me as his own. And this song explains our relationship perfect. So if you are having a hard time choosing a song for your father daughter dance, this song is perfect.

Lacey says...
I agree, I almost cried just reading the lyrics. I'm the youngest of my siblings so it fits perfectly with me and my dad.

booba3 says...
from the moment i had heard this song, before i was ever engaged, i knew it was the one for me and my father because, i cry just thinking of us dancing to it.

diane3111@yahoo.com says...
I love this song, I knew it was the perfect father/daughter dance when i heard it.

Future Mrs says...
I absolutely love this song.. I knew it was going to be my father/daughter song from the moment I heard it. I cry each time I hear it, so I definitely am going to have to wear waterproof mascara at my wedding.

kendra90 says...
I think this is the perfect song for my father/daughter dance. I am my daddy's only daughter, so it will be very emotional. I love this song.

blaineandmassimo says...
I am using this song on March 7th with my Dad and if I even think about it now, I start to cry - its going to be a teary crowd too!

Future Mrs. Araujo says...
I too could not find the perfect song to dance with my dad!!! When i first heard this one i knew it was THE ONE! :) i love it; the words explain are just so special also!! Cant wait to dance with my dad!

pete says...
The words to this song are beautiful and slow and easy to understand them all and Tim has a classy but easy does it way,that lets every little girl remember the times when she was little,the times that her daddy and what he thought meant everything to her. Then she is marrying and the words dancing with your daddy made me so emotional but content to have started this journey with the second man I will ever love. A father's love is the first love a female knows usually with a man. I thank my daddy for giving me such that special gift to me and my sisters and having such love and respect for our mother. For those of you whose dad was not there and my words mean nothing. Remember: Above all our Father in Heaven loves each of us and he can be that father you never had. HE will never leave you or forsake you. His word is testimony to that.

May God bless ALL the lovely women in this huge world of ours.

Michelle says...
Cannot listen to this and not cry.
It is PERFECT for my daddy and me.
I dont see how anyone can pass this up for a daddy and daughter song

amy1982 says...
I get married in 3 weeks and every since I heard this I knew that is was going to be the song that I was going to dance with my dad too. Everytime that I hear this song I cry and I know that when he does when we are dancing I know that he is going to also. That song is just so perfect for a father and daughter to dance to at her wedding.

nikkie1107 says...
I loveeee this song! This is the song my stepdad is choosing for me & him to dance to!

mrsladylane says...
I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG AND IT IS SO PERFECT

Brooke-Lynn says...
This is the perfect song for me and my grandfather who will be giving me away. He has always been the one to give me everything and i know that he will love this song too


Zangelina05 says...
this song made me cry.. i wish i could've had a relationship with my dad.

Sabrina0305 says...
This is the perfect father/daughter song for my daughter and her new step dad to dance to. she will be five when we get married.

jamieo says...
absolutely perfect for any father and daughter

Nicole says...
When this song first came out i knew it was the song i wanted to my father daughter dance to. It makes me cry everytime i hear it. Its fits me and my dad perfect

FriarGirl03 says...
I love this song too, but I can't get passed the part where he's talking about a boy asking for her hand and not being good enough. I just can't have the message that my dad thinks that my new husband is not good enough for me. If I could just get that verse out of the song, it would be perfect!

Jennifer says...
agreed to everyone...this is absolutely the PERFECT father daughter dance...and here I thought one of "our" songs would be better...but alas...so much better to make people wimper...then jump into "Cocaine" by Eric Clapton LOL!

Nicole says...
I heard this song and knew this is the one. I hope my makeup will be okay, because I am going to cry:)

ksmith07 says...
My Daddy actually picked this song! When I turned 18 and graduated from High School he bought me this CD because he said evertime he listens to that song it makes him think of me! I am his oldest baby and we are very close. I can't wait to dance with my daddy to this song. We cried when he gave me the CD...so I can't even think about how we are going to be when we dance to this at the wedding! Very Emotional.... :)

Angela says...
This song is perfect for me and my daddy. I'm getting Married in 2012 and my father will always say that I'm too young. But in reality he told me that he says this because he doesn't want to give me away. He and my Fiance are very close, he actually set me and him up and although he is the perfect man for his little girl to marry, it still tears my dad up. He spoke to me the other night about what songs I was having and I told him that I haven't even thought of it yet and he said "I have something for you to listen to" he put this song on. Right away I knew this song was the one. My daddy and I both cried that night. I Love him and this song is going to be the best one for the father/daughter dance at my wedding :)

Liz says...
this song makes me cry! i wish i had this kind of relationship with my dad. all the songs make me cry:( we never had the greatest relationship but im still trying to find a song that will work for us.

Annette says...
i think this one is THE ONE!

Sheri says...
the best song!!

Christina says...
I can't stop crying when this song plays. It's got so much meaning.

Jessica says...
im using this song. ive had this song picked out for years

Future Mrs. S says...
this is my father daughter dance song! It describes us perfectly, especially since I used to always say love you more to him

Vanessa <3 says...
@FriarGirl03 That was my original response to this song as well. But I had my dad listen to it and he said that is exactly how he feels. Not that he doesn't like my FH, they get along great. Just that as a father, no one can take care of his daughter like he can. I suspect I will never know how that feels until I have kids.

So after wrestling with that part of the song, I am thinking this is the the one I'm going to use. It's very good!

rayna says...
wow.. gives me shivers on my arms.. i in fact have two dads not sure which will be which but one or the other this is it. one biological father and one step dad.

Summer says...
This is for us Summer. I love you!
DAD

Danielle says...
yay they actually have my father and I's song this will be perfect

Tina says...
I love this song too but the "won't be good enough" part got me too. I think vanessa is right. We'll never know how a parent feels until we become one but it does seem to be the strongest kind of love. One that they may think no one else can ever live up to.

Anonymous says...
I had a hard time picking just the right song out for the father/daughter dance. As soon as I heard this song and started singing along, I was crying. I think I found the one.

Megan says...
Wow, this song is perfect.. and I am crying! whew!

Brianna says...
love it

Caitlyn says...
I've loved this song from the moment I heard it! I've always wanted it to be my father/daughter dance, unfortunately I lost my dad in 09, but I still think I'm going to have this song play for me and my uncle(who is walking me down the isle) =]

Krystle  says...
I Love this song and when I first heard it I knew it was going to be my father/daughter dance :) Getting married June 24th so excited :)

Sarah says...
This is my song that I will be dancing with my daddy too. I will try not to cry.

Kelly says...
My dad gave me this CD this Christmas it first came out and circled this song number and had me listen to it. Even now, every time I listen to this song, I tear up. This is going to be my Father/Daughter song.

Shianne M says...
Perfect song for me and my daddy. I started crying just reading the lyrics!

Lisa says...
My Husband and I hav selected this song for his Father/Daughter dance - we absolutely love her fiancee and know he's the right one for her.

Do you think it's hurtful to choose this song since the lyrics say...

But between you and me. He won't be good enough!

??

BellaGurl8609 says...
I love this song

BellaGurl8609 says...
lisa no its saying that in a fathers eyes no man will ever be as good as her DADDY

Stephanie says...
This is the one for me!

Beth says...
I love this song! I cry every time!

Tracy says...
I love this song. And like most of you, after hearing it the first time, I always thought it would be the one I dance with my daddy to. However, in 2010 my dad had a massive heart attack, and after being in a drug induced coma for 7 days, died.

Call it fate or destiny, or even just coincidence, but the night I left the hospital to drive home to Rhode Island from Maine, where he lived, I heard Crystal Shawanda's You can let go. It was heart wrenching, to hear it but perfect at the same time.

Seeing as I will not have my daddy to dance with at my wedding in 2014, all the men in my family have decided to each take turns dancing with me, in representation of my dad. How do I now choose the song?

Danielle says...
This song will have Mom in tears... Perfect for our Sweetie

Travis & Kimmy says...
So.. My dad left my life when I was really little.. so I am deciding to have my Grandfather walk me down the aisle and dance with me.. This song is perfect and made me cry so so much.

Melissa & Gary says...
So many good songs that would be great for father/daughter dance, but all that I have listened to are for the girls that grew up with daddy being in their life. What about for girls like me that just recently met their father after 31 years??? Having such a hard time finding a good song to play getting married April 2014 anyone have any good ideas?
