Butterfly Kisses - Various

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.

 

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."

Oh 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."

 

Then she leaned over

 

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,

 

Sticking 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 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
