My dad and I are dancing to “Daddy” by Kendall Payne.  It’s BEAUTIFUL!! but, it’s not a sappy “Butterfly Kisses” song.

Here are the lyrics:

How long have I been dreaming? Who forgot to wake, to wake me up?
I know it sounds crazy but daddy now I think I’m in love
Cause when he steps in the room my heart begins to pound

You said, “Never settle,” you promised there was one out there for me
It’s true, I might have doubted but he’s standing here and now *, now* I believe
Yes, I know you’ll be proud of the man that chose me

It’s elementary to the wise, for the fool in full disguise
Beggars bow and poets kneel, and as for me… it’s finally real

I will always love you and I will always be your little girl
None could come between us, you’ll forever be the first man in my world
But when he smiles I can see how much he reminds me of you
A man of faith, a man of strength, who loves me like you do

*It’s elementary to the wise, for the fool in full disguise
Beggars bow and poets kneel, and as for me… it’s finally real*

How long have I been sleeping? Who forgot to wake, to wake me up?
Daddy, he’s amazing, he’s everything that I’ve been dreaming of
And now he has become my very best friend…

*It’s elementary to the wise, for the fool in full disguise
Beggars bow and poets kneel, and as for me… it’s finally real*

*It’s all the time I’ve spent in tears. Worth the heartace, worth the fears. To stand beside him on this day after you give me away.*

 

Good luck picking your song! : )

We might not do special dances now, but if we do I plan to use “Daughter” by Loudwin Wainwright (that is probably really poorly spelled haha).

My dad and I are dancing to Nat and Natalie King Cole’s duet of “Unforgettable.”  Perfect father/daughter duet for a perfect father/daughter dance in my opinion =)

I fell in love with the song my dad and I used in may. We danced to “you’ll be in my heart” by phil collins from the disney tarzan soundtrack. I knew pretty much from the beginning that I wanted that song.

We are dancing to Joy of my Life by John Fogerty.  Other songs we thought of were My Wish by Rascal Flatts, Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel and You Raise Me Up by The Celtic Women. 

 

Have you asked your dad what he wants?

What about Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely”? It’s more upbeat, so it’s not sappy, and it’s a fun song!

My Dad and I are dancing to Desperado by the Eagles.  The song and the Eagles  have a lot of meaning to us.  I know most people will think its strange, but I don’t care.  So if you like “You’ve got a friend” because its what you think of when you think about your Dad, use it. And I don’t think it has a lot of Negative in it.  Its just saying I’ll be there for you whenever you need me.  I think its very sweet.

I really wanted “the best day” by taylor swift, but my step mom said that my dad wanted to pick out the song so I let it go. I think it is nice that he wanted to do that =)

We are dancing to Edwin McCain’s “Walk With You”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LBUMnQgSTs

Lyrics: Walk With You

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say: I do
He will discover just how blessed a life can be
I know cuz all those years ago
Someone handed you to me

Every step that we take
Brings back the memories
Winter snows and horse shows
Dancing on the beach
I can’t help thinking that I’m the lucky one
You’re still my baby daughter
And now I’ve gained a son

Chorus
I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say : I do
He will discover just how blessed a life can be
I know ‘cause all those years ago
Your mom handed you to me

Don’t miss a chance to put each other first
Now that you’ve vowed for better or for worse
Don’t let the beauty of this life pass you by
In the times of trouble you’ll stand side by side

Chorus
I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say : I do

I picture a slow sweet walk yet to be
When you’ll take my hand and say : Daddy come see
Then you’ll know what it felt like
You won’t believe what it feels like
Then you’ll know what it felt like
When she handed you to me

She handed you to me

“Daddy” by Kendall Payne is really sweet! I’m still looking for a F/D song, and while i love the lyrics, this one seems really slow for dancing. Sigh, I can’t figure it out! I’m not much for country, and that’s what most of the F/D songs out there are!
