lyrics

Now that you’re here, I can think about tomorrow
I see my life’s reflection in your eyes, but I don’t know where it will take you
All I know is how much I care, and I wish I could say I’d always be here
But, life goes fast, got to hang on to what lasts…
My memory of you is crystal clear.

From the first seconds, you’ve been engrained in my mind, my mind
Your eyes gazed at me like light cast from the sky
You touched my life through my eyes
And when your little hand wrapped around my finger
It was the other way around, I was enamored…
I was a Father…
And this is a letter for a daughter…
My daughter.

And with all that’s changed, I feel a sense of peace inside
It’s evident as we breathe in and out, as I hold you in my arms tonight
But, I know that this stage is fleeting and one day you’ll be out on your own
Just know that there’s a place for you here, my arms will always be open.

From the first seconds, you’ve been engrained in my mind, my mind
Your eyes gazed at me like light cast from the sky
You touched my life through my eyes
And when your little hand wrapped around my finger
It was the other way around, I was enamored…
I was a Father…
And this is a letter for a daughter…
My daughter.
