i know many will agree but there are these songs that touch you, find you and in the end, change you. This song is one of those. Sunrise in Hawaii, and a song for my little girl. I first played this song for her when she was around 11. We don’t always see eye to eye, we don’t always agree, But the reality is she is daddies little girl and always will be.
I’ve shared this song before and have talked about it, but it is a part of me that i cherish. So i hope you love this one as much as I do.
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 eyesand I thank god for all of the joy in my lifeOh, but most of all
For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayersticking 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.”Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.Sweet 16 todayShe’s looking like her mama a little more everydayOne part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curlsTrying her wings out in a great big world.But I remember…Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayersticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
“You know how much I love you, DaddyBut if you don’t mind I’m only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time.”Oh with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something rightto deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.
All the precious timeLike 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 overGave me butterfly kisses with her mama thereSticking little white flowers all up in her hair”Walk me 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 her love every morning and butterfly kissesI couldn’t ask God for more, man this is what love is.I know I gotta let her go, but I’ll always rememberEvery hug in the morning and butterfly kisses…
sometimes songs can be more than simply music, right?
