Lyrics

Just once upon a yesterday
I held you in my arms
You grew into a little girl
with lovely childhood charms
Now it seems I only turned around
And I see you by his side
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter is a bride
I guess somehow I always knew
This day would soon be here
Still I wonder as I look at you
What became of all the years
And no words could ever quite express
The way I feel inside
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter is a bride
All the laughter and the teardrops
The sunshine and the rain
I would relive every moment, Dear
If I could bring them all back again
But now, my love, the time has come
To send you on your way
So I wish you every happiness
And the blessings of this day
And I hope the love I've given you
Will forever be your guide
Oh, I can't believe my eyes today
My daughter - Oh, I can't believe my eyes
My daughter - Oh, my angel and my pride
My daughter is a bride

Wow really good song. I searched for awhile for a song that fit my dad and I and this one really is the one.

This is my Dad no doubt. He is always there no matter what it is...he is a very jolly,caring, loving person. I want this to be special not for just him but for me and all the memories i will have.

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this song? I checked iTunes but they don't have it?? :o)

Deb  says...
A sololist just sang this song at my daughter's wedding this past weekend (6/20/2009) after her Dad walked her down the isle, right before he gave her away. We were told there was not a dry eye in the church and have been asked several times where we got the song. I keep humming this song in my mind because it was such an appropriate song since my daughter and husband have had a very close relationship her entire life. I am so glad I found this on Wedding Wire Songs. Thank you so much for making a special day extremely "Special for my daughter and her Father" with this beautiful song/music.

Deb  says...
The sheet music can be obtained from New Traditions 413-739-3060. Very nice to work with and rec'd it via e-mail, very quickly. Hope this works as nicely for anyone interested as it did for us. I am still getting asked where we got this song.

This song describes the relationship between my dad and myself. I would love to use it but unfortunately my dad passed away in 2005. I am sure that my Dad will be looking down on me on my Wedding Day. I am looking for a song that I can use to dance with my brother. I would appreciate it if anyone can help me out. Thank you. Good luck to all of your upcoming weddings!

LLOYD says...
When I went looking for a song for myself & daughter i GOOGLED THIS SITE, and the 1st impression is the best...I cried the 1st time, and just cried AGAIN. My daughter cried and gave it to our DJ who was familiar with it .... The lyrics are INCREDIBLE, and instead of waiting until this day, all parents who have a GIRL should play it so they can slow down and appreciate this GIFT.
