    If you love your Dad...

    This is the best song. I hope to play it when I get married. I'm crying now as I listen to it... cuz well, I'm just emotional like this sometimes.

    Butterfly Kisses
    There's two things I know for sure:
    She was sent here from heaven and she's
    daddy's little girl.
    As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
    She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes and
    I thank god for all the joy in my life
    Oh, but most of all
    For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
    sticking little white flowers all up in her
    hair; "Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
    "I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
    In all that I've done wrong I know I must
    have done something right to deserve a hug
    every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

    Sweet 16 today
    She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
    One part woman, the other part girl.
    To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
    Trying her wings out in a great big world.

    But I remember
    Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; sticking
    little white flowers all up in her hair.
    "You know how much I love you, Daddy, But if you
    don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time."
    With all that I've done wrong I must have done
    something right to deserve her love every morning
    and butterfly kisses at night.

    All the precious time
    Like the wind, the years go by.
    Precious butterfly.
    Spread your wings and fly.

    She'll change her name today.
    She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
    Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
    She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
    sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
    She leaned over and gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
    Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
    "Walk my down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
    "Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry!"

    Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have
    done something right.
    To deserve your love every morning and butterfly
    kisses-I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.

    I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
    every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses.


    This is my favorite part...

    She'll change her name today.
    She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
    Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
    She asked me what I'm thinking and I said "I'm not
    sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
    She leaned over and gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,


    I love my Daddy. Hugs to those who have lost one or don't keep in touch with one.

    I respect and love my dad very dearly. Reading this makes my eyes begin to water, and makes me wish my dad could come home from work and give me a big hug and kiss. What a wonderful song!

    I was going to dance with my dad to this song at the wedding reception but he chose another one (that the DJ didn't have so we actually danced to a song that meant nothing to either of us, but that's another story). The line that always got me was "I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl..." I never got emotional listening to that song until I got engaged and I'm back to not being *as* emotional as I was when I was engaged. It's a great song. Wish we had just danced to it after all.

    I absolutely LOVE that song, and I did dance to it with my father at my wedding. So sweet I will always remember that I cried like a baby, and I still do when I hear it....


    Thank you so much Michelle!

    Wow, that is beautiful.

    I love my Dad, but we have a very strange relationship. We never give each other hugs or kisses and he always seems to feel uncomfortable around me. Not sure why, we were very close when I was younger. Hopefully he'll change as I get older, maybe its just because I'm a teenager, he doesn't know how to act around me.

    *tears* That's beautiful. Simply beautiful. I couldn't even make it through the first paragraph without crying. I'm just one big baby.

    So I know for the future (wink wink) who wrote/sings this song? I already have a list going for what's going to be played at my wedding (always have.. I'm only 16 and seriously have my wedding planned out!) and I'd want this for the dance between my daddy and I. :*)

    I love my daddy so much, he means everything to me. Thank you so much for posting this. This is what I needed today.

    That's my dads favorite song. Ever since I was small just him and I would go to this diner place that has been in a small town just over since the 1950's. Every time we go there, we put our nickel in the jukebox, and play that song over and over while we are/were eating. I am definantly playing it at my wedding, too.

    That is a touching song, and I just love it!

    The song I hope to play at my wedding is "You don't have to let go" it describes my dad and me perfectly.

    Here are the lyrcs

    You Don't Have To Let Go


    I don't need your strength anymore
    cause you've made me strong
    You may not see the one light in me
    And you dreamed of
    Holding me in your arms

    All the days that you gave
    All the moments you've saved me,
    Praying for my life
    Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
    You don't have to let go

    You don't say it
    But it's in your eyes
    All the fears of good-bye
    But I can promise
    You'll always have a place, and a way to my heart

    All the days that you gave
    All the moments you've saved me,
    Praying for my life
    Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
    You don't have to let go

    I can live
    Cause you lived for me
    And I can love
    Because you loved me.

    All the days that you gave
    All the moments you've saved me,
    Praying for my life
    Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own
    You don't have to let go

    (Ooh ooh ooh)
    You don't have to let go

    ILMAG, I bought Bob Carlisle's CD specifically for that song. I love that song, and it makes me very emotional.

    Yeah Sarah, like Anna mentioned, it's by Bob Carlisle. I think a few others sing it as well, though.

    That is so beautiful, and so touching. I love my daddy dearly, as well as my mom, of course. There is no one in this world like one's parents...no one. No one can even come close to comparing.

    I LOVE that song! i'm going to play it when i get married, and dance with my dad.

    Alright......you were just trying to make us all cry over our dads weren't you?!
    That is just one of the sweetest & precious song lyrics I've read. Ya know it's sad but I can't even remember what I played for my dad last year. It wasn't that song though, I wanted something different, something that REALLY reminded me of my dad. I almost made up lyrics & was going to have someone sing it to him but it got too late to put together. One of these days I am going to come up with my own, just to show him how much I truly love him!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love my dad very much, and no matter how many times I read the lyrics or hear the song, I always get sad about it.
