Lyrics

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all


You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me


You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you


You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me


You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you


You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me


I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

Mrs. Lucky says...
What a Beautiful Song for the Bride Entrance. This will be my song

JessicaDawn2122 says...
I've always loved this song but always thought of it as a woman to man love song but after listening to it and reading over the lyrics again I've found it as a daughter to father song as well. It is everything that my father has ever been to me and now I'm considering it as my father-daughter song.

vickywelch@bellsouth.net says...
does everybody knows now shane and holly going getting merry on this day too ok

luci says...
i had a stroke nearly a year ago. with song speak my mind. and also what my husband to be he did. i going to have this song

tsunami says...
I've heard this song a million times, but I really listened to it just now and cried like a baby, too. I would love to use this as the father-daughter song and think it makes perfect sense to do so...I just think I would be sobbing the whole time...

Lori says...
When I left my first husband, I was almost dead. I was so week physically I could not even stand up. My Baby brother, ten years younger than me, came and LITERALLY carried my daughter and me out of the house and put us in his car. He has been there for me and my daughter ever since that day. He will give me away at my wedding this June and this song is for him. I hope he will dance with me to it even though he hates to dance. And if he does, I hope I don't cry like a baby!

Future Mrs. Vega says...
This song will def be danced with my father and my little 15yr old brother. If I could dance it with my mother and sister I would too. My little big family is all I ever had and is all I will ever have. They have been there through think and thin and all because they loved me I am where I am now!! This song is dedicated to them and will be dedicated to them the day of my wedding!! This song is truly beautiful!!

trayz_girl_03 says...
i was just listening to all these songs trying to get an idea of what i wanted played at my wedding. I have always loved this song as one of my favorites and always thought that it would be the song for my groom but i was almost in tears as i listened and i know this will definitely be the sng i dedicate to my parents.

kmorris09 says...
Aw so sweet . . . So romantic . . . So true . . .

Queenbe says...
As I read all the comment about this song , Yes it's a great song to dedicate to your parents and dance with your dad, but I see it as giving thanks to GOD. He gives us the strength and the eyes to see. Without him this would not be possible so I thank him for all that he has done in my life and giving Mrs. Celine Dion the words and desire to sing these beautiful song. It really is a tear jerk-er. What better way to walk out of the church and be thanking GOD at the same time.

Debbie says...
My Mom and I danced to this song on my Wedding Day. Everything that Celine Dion sings is so true. This song was especially made for my Mom & I. All I did was get into trouble until the St Patricks Day of 1988. She helped me get out of jail due to my 3rd DWI and visited me in Rehab and a Half-way house. Due to me being in the program of AA, I met my husband and we have a beautiful life together. We had a great wedding ceromony and reception and a wonderful honeymoon in Maui Hawaii. Thank God I found someone who loves me. I will always be greatful!

Charlie says...
If I could have one wish, it would be that I could dance with my mom to this song, she was the one who taught me to so much, just recently lost mom in January of 2009 and my husband and I are renewing our wedding vows in 2010 after 25 yrs together.............so yes this song will be deadicated to my mom...........such a insirational song

Our Special Day says...
I'm crying as I listen to this song... It remind me of my Grandmother. She was of these things to me. I'm going to use this song for my Grandparents when they come in.

annishal says...
This song is just what my soon to be husband is to me and i'm to him..the words to this song is why i love him like i do..

kevinsgirl says...

kevinsgirl says...
I like this one, But it sounds more like women to man song, However it could be a Daughter to Father song, and would be very proud to dance too this song with my Daughter the Bride.

this song is amazing. makes me cry like a baby everytime i hear it. it is definately going on the list of options

Brandi  says...
Love it!!!

deborah says...
this is the one,love it

A&T_Lewis says...
This showed up as suggestion for father-daughter. The moment it played and I started reading the lyrics, I also cried like a baby. It is perfect for my relationship with my dad. We don't have a typical "daddy's little girl" relationship, so all those "Butterfly Kisses" type songs just don't fit with us. We're not sentimental or mushy, just straight-up support through the years. The other songs didn't invoke a sense of belonging in me when I heard them, but this song describes us perfectly. I am everything I am because he loves me the way he does.

Alesha says...
Ooh this song is perfect for a father daughter song I am def considering this one.

Staci says...
Yes this will be played at the reception. Love Celine!

Stephanie says...
this is a beatiful song my wedding is next year and this is going to be the song i dance to with my mum because she truely has ben my rock and everything

Gretchan says...
def. my father-daughter song, but not for me while walking down the aisle...i love celine dion!!!

Janet says...
I am going to play this song in my wedding which will be in 2011 In Memory Of my Grandmother,Grandfather and my niece.

Doree says...
this song will be my first dance song i have always loved this song and now that i have found someone to share it with me my wedding will be perfect Aug. 2011.....

Shanitta says...
This song is so powerful and encompassing. I first cry for father, God who I know loves me unconditionally. Then I think of my father/uncle who has trully been there for me and has loved me through some hard times. Then I cry for my son who has stood by his mother not matter what and today I have such a strong young man that is ready to give his mother away to the right man. So last my fiancee, whom I trully love, appreciate and I promise to be there for him until God calls ones of us home!

Tonya says...
I loved this song the very first time I heard it. When my fiance and I decided to get married, this is the only song i could think of to dance with my father on. My daddy has always taught me to be the best you you can be.

brittbrat1363 says...
I never had a father until i was 10 years old and then my mom met my stepfather. I never thought i was going to find a song that we could dance to together because most songs talk about their father but i don't call him dad. This song is so perfect for me to dance with him to because it says all the things i never could say to him before

bride2be2011 says...
The words are amazing...it seems no matter what song I listen to for the first dance I begin to cry because the lyrics say it all on how I feel about my Rob =)

Carrie says...
i plan to dance to this song with my father(if the lord's wwill of course)

Renee says...
this is deffinatly my and my moms song she always is there for me ....even when i mess up real bad i dont know what i would do with out her

Lori says...
Meaningful for couples and parent / child relationships. Beautiful words and sentiments ^_^

annmarie says...
Im going to be using this song for when me and my fiance walk up the aisle. It will be in memory of my Father, Step Father, Grandmother, Grandfather and Great Grandmother. All of whom I was so very close to, its going to be a very hard day without them there, but this song is just perfect for my relationship with them.

Rachel says...
Even before I met my fiance I always said that this would be my father/daughter dance. This song is amazing! And honestly, if I am who I am because of my father. He's the best!

Amanda says...
im torn.. I absoluely LOVE this song and will definately use it! I just don't know where. The way the song falls I would use it for my parents or my brother. He has always been there for me. But, I have always been a Mommy's girl. I really want to use I Loved Her First by Heartland for my father-daughter dance. Hmmm...

Private User says...
