Phil Collins - You'll Be in My Heart


Notable Lyrics:

Come stop your crying

It will be alright

Just take my hand

Hold it tight


I will protect you

From all around you

I will be here

Don't you cry

For one so small

You seem so strong

My arms will hold you

Keep you safe and warm

This bond between us

Can't be broken

I will be here

Don't you cry


[Chorus]

Cause you'll be in my heart

Yes, you'll be in my heart

From this day on

Now and forever more


You'll be in my heart

No matter what they say

You'll be here in my heart

Always


 

Celine Dion - Dance With My Father


Notable Lyrics:

Back when I was a child

Before life removed all the innocence

My father would lift me high

And dance with my mother and me and then


[Pre-Chorus]

Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep

Then up the stairs he would carry me

And I knew for sure I was loved

[Chorus]

If I could get another chance

Another walk, another dance with him

I'd play a song that would never ever end

How I'd love, love, love

To dance with my father again


Ooh, ooh, yeah


 

Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up


Notable Lyrics:

Your little hand's wrapped around my finger

And it's so quiet in the world tonight

Your little eyelids flutter 'cause you're dreaming

So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite nightlight

To you, everything's funny

You got nothing to regret

I'd give all I have, honey

If you could stay like that


[Chorus]

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little

Oh, darling, don't you ever grow up

Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you

Won't let no one break your heart

And no one will desert you

Just try to never grow up

Never grow up


 

Krystal Keith - Daddy Dance With me


Notable Lyrics:

I know what you see when you look at me

As we walk down the aisle

Little pink tutu, bows and tennis shoes

In the wide eyes of your child

Those are all the memories you will cherish and you'll carry

No matter how much time has come and gone


[Chorus]

Daddy dance with me

I want you to see the woman I've become

Daddy don't let go

I want you to know I'll always need your love

Today I became his wife

But I'll be your baby girl for life

[Verse 2]

Don't know what to do when I look at you

Words can't say enough

What you've done for me

You gave me what I need

You were tender, you were tough

'Cause the world you built around me is the strength that will surround me

And protect me now that I am on my own


 

Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses


Notable Lyrics:

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 of 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."

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.


 

Camila Cabello - First Man


Notable Lyrics:

I swear on my heart that he's a good man

I promise he loves me, he'd never hurt me

You held me so tight now someone else can

But you were the first man that really loved me

Now you're on the driveway faking a smile

You wish you could tell him he doesn't deserve me

So I had to stop the car and turn around

To tell you, "You were the first man that really loved me."


And before they open up the doors

I say, "I've never seen you cry before."

You say, "You've never looked so beautiful

You know you'll always be my little girl"


You're looking at me, we're walking down the aisle

With tears in your eyes, maybe he deserves me

You don't even know how much it means to me now

That you were the first man that really loved me


Oh, that really loved me, oh

You really love me


 

Stylistics - You're a Big Girl Now


Notable Lyrics:

You’re a big girl now

No more daddy’s little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)

You’re a big girl now

No more daddy’s little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)


[Verse 1]

No more pigtails in your hair

No more silly looks with a childish glare

No more doll for you to play

No more dumbness in the things you say

[Chorus]

You’re a big girl now

No more daddy’s little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)

You’re a big girl now

No more daddy’s little girl (Oh, ho, ho, ho)


 

Michael Bolton - Daddy's Little Girl


Notable Lyrics:

You're the end of the rainbow, my pot of gold

You're daddy's little girl to have and hold

A precious gem is what you are

A ray of hope, a shining star


You're the brightest of the sunshine

Morning's first light

You warm my day, you brighten my night

You're sugar you're spice, you're everything nice

And you're daddy's little girl


 

Jason Blaine - Dance With My Daughter


Notable Lyrics:

Momma's looks, Momma's eyes

Her old man's fightin' side

Stubborn heart, gypsy soul

Tell me where does the time go


Gonna dance with my daughter

Spin her around under the lights

'Cause I'm just a father

Making the most of this moment in time

Before she lets me go, I'll hold her close

Caught in this race against time

Right now all I want is to dance with my daughter tonight


 

Abby Anderson - Daddy


Notable Lyrics:

Well daddy I came here today

'Cause I think I might have found the one

Oh yeah I'm head over heels in love and

I bet I can tell you what you're thinking of


Yeah you're wondering

How I know he's it

Well my whole life

I have a dad who showed me what a real man is


Cause daddy he loves me just like you do

He treats me like a queen just like you, just like you do

He's my shoulder to cry on, he's my best friend

Oh and daddy, he loves me just like you


 

Marvin Gaye - "How Sweet It Is"


Notable Lyrics:

I close my eyes at night,

wondering where would I be without you in my life

Everything I did was just a bore,

everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before

But you brightened up for me all of my days

With a love so sweet in so many ways

I want to stop and thank you baby

I want to stop and thank you baby


How sweet it is to be loved by you

How sweet it is to be loved by you
