    Default need name of father-daughter dance song

    I'm looking for the title of a song that I heard. It would be for a father-daughter wedding dance song. The song is about firsts... Some of the lyrics were along the lines of: daddy will you marry me, first pony ride, etc. I heard it about the same time that "Stealing Cinderella" came out. I don't think that it's "Butterfly Kisses" Anyone have any ideas?

    I Loved Her First - by Heartland

    Look at the two of you dancing that way
    Lost in the moment and each others face
    So much in love your alone in this place
    Like there's nobody else in the world
    I was enough for her not long ago
    I was her number one
    She told me so
    And she still means the world to me
    Just so you know
    So be careful when you hold my girl
    Time changes everything
    Life must go on
    And I'm not gonna stand in your way

    But I loved her first and I held her first
    And a place in my heart will always be hers
    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    And I prayed that she'd find you someday
    But it still hard to give her away
    I loved her first

    How could that beautiful women with you
    Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
    The one that I read all those fairy tales to
    And tucked into bed all those nights
    And I knew the first time I saw you with her
    It was only a matter of time

    But I loved her first and I held her first
    And a place in my heart will always be hers
    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    And I prayed that she'd find you someday
    But its still hard to give her away
    I loved her first

    From the first breath she breathed
    When she first smiled at me
    I knew the love of a father runs deep
    Someday you might know what I'm going through
    When a miracle smiles up at you
    I loved her first

    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."
    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."
    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, 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 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.

    There's a new song that's perfect for a Sweet 16 Father/Daughter dance. It's
    called "Sweet 16 (My Everything)" by "Who Are Those Guys". You can hear for
    free on their website: www.whoarethoseguys.com or there's also a link to
    Broadjam where you can download it.
    This is the PERFECT tune for a father/daughter dance......
    Thanks for listening!.
