We used “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” by Stevie Wonder for this. It’s upbeat and a little faster and the lyrics are appropriate…

 

You are the sunshine of my life
Thats why Ill always be around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning,
Though Ive loved you for a million years,
And if I thought our love was ending,
Id find myself drowning in my own tears.

You are the sunshine of my life,
Thats why Ill always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart,

You must have known that I was lonely,
Because you came to my rescue,
And I know that this must be heaven,
How could so much love be inside of you?

You are the sunshine of my life, yeah,
Thats why Ill always stay around,
You are the apple of my eye,
Forever youll stay in my heart.

(background) love has joined us,
Love has joined us,
Lets think sweet love.

Rascal Flatts – My Wish. Not sure if you like country but its a great song that is great for both. This is what we are using and we are combining the two.

I LOVE “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas – without fail, I will CRY every time.

(lyrics)

<span style=”font-family: Arial, Helvetica, ‘Times New Roman’; font-size: 16px;”>let it go, 
let it roll right off your shoulder 
don’t you know 
the hardest part is over 
let it in, 
let your clarity define you 
in the end 
we will only just remember how it feels 

our lives are made 
in these small hours 
these little wonders, 
these twists & turns of fate 
time falls away, 
but these small hours, 
these small hours still remain 

let it slide, 
let your troubles fall behind you 
let it shine 
until you feel it all around you 
and i don’t mind 
if it’s me you need to turn to 
we?ll get by, 
it’s the heart that really matters in the end 

our lives are made 
in these small hours 
these little wonders, 
these twists & turns of fate 
time falls away, 
but these small hours, 
these small hours still remain 

all of my regret 
will wash away some how 
but i can not forget 
the way i feel right now 

in these small hours 
these little wonders 
these twists & turns of fate 
these twists & turns of fate 
time falls away but these small hours 
these small hours, still remain, 
still remain 
these little wonders 
these twists & turns of fate 
time falls away 
but these small hours 
these little wonders still remain

Love how sweet it is… I was going to suggest the Nat King Cole/Natalie Cole Unforgettable duet.

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong is a classic that would work for a combined dance. There’s probably some good covers of this song too if you don’t want the Armstrong version.

In My Life by the Beatles for something with a stronger beat and a little faster.

Any Sintara song could work. We considered “I get a kick out of you” and “You make me feel so young” for our combined dance. We finally settled on “Under my skin.”

We used “There You’ll Be” by Faith Hill for our combined dance (his mother passed away and he danced with his maternal grandmother for the dance). It was really nice and fit my relationship with my father as well.

I know your wedding date has passed but if someone else has the same question….

I was thinking about using “The Prayer” by Josh Groban and Celine Dion but I couldn’t imagine not having a “father-daughter” specific song for my dad… It’s a pretty song and I think it’s appropriate 🙂

 

I pray you�ll be our eyes And watch us where we go And help us to be wise In times when we don�t know

Let this be our prayer As we go our way Lead us to a place Guide us with your grace To a place where we�ll be safe La luce che to dai

I pray we�ll find your light Nel cuore restero And hold it in our hearts A ricordarchi che When stars go out each night L�eterna stella sei Nella mia preghiera Let this be our prayer Quanta fede c�e When shadows fill our day Lead us to a place Guide us with your grace

Give us faith so we�ll be safe. Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza

Un mondo di giustizia e di speranza Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino Simbolo di pace e di fraternita

La forza che ci dai We ask that life be kind E�il desiderio che And watch us from above Ognuno trovi amore We hope each soul will find Intorno e dentro a se Another soul to love

Let this be our prayer Let this be our prayer Just like every child Just like every child

Needs to find a place, Guide us with your grace Give us faith so we�ll be safe E la fede che Hai acceso in noi Sento che ci salvera
