Well my dad and I are dancing to ‘I Loved Her First’ by Heartland.  It’s about how your dad is the first guy to love you, hold you and kiss you, but now he’s handing you over to someone else and how he wants this new man to take care of his baby girl.  It’s country, so I don’t know if you care for that, but it’s sweet.

My dad got so excited about it that he downloaded it as his ringtone on his phone and it’s what rings when I call now.  And let me just tell you that my dad is not the best with cell phones, and it took him over an hour and a phone call to AT&T to download it so I was really touched by that.

My dad and I will be using phil keaggy’s Father Daughter Harmony. It was our song when I was little. I love it because it is just about a dad and his daughter and how much they love eachother.

What about When You Come Back Down by Nickel Creek? My sister and Dad danced to that at her wedding. Its not directly about a father/daughter relationship. But its about supporting someone, which sounds like it may apply to both you and your dad. Below are the first two verses.

You got to leave me now, you got to go alone
You got to chase a dream, one that’s all your own
Before it slips away
When you’re flyin’ high, take my heart along
I’ll be the harmony to every lonely song
That you learn to play

When you’re soarin’ through the air
I’ll be your solid ground
Take every chance you dare
I’ll still be there
When you come back down
When you come back down

@peaches1038: I know, I love this song! It has such a great nessage, and its not super common. Too bad my sister has already used it, and I don’t want to steal her song! I am still looking for my song.

@Miss Sweet Tea: I love that song!

My dad and I danced to, Your Song by Elton John. Not the perfect father/daughter song, but we both love it and it means something to us.

I’m really sorry to hear about your dad’s illness.  🙁 

I don’t know if this song would work for you but my dad and I are dancing to Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World (the Hawaiian sounding version) sung by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.   Really a lovely song with a lovely sentiment.

My dad and I are dancing to Kind and Generous by Natalie Merchant. I picked it as my song with him long before I even met my FI! I told my best friend about it, and now whenever she hears it she tears up. LOL!

I like it because it talks about being grateful to this person for giving you unconditional support, and love. I also like that it’s not a typical daddy/daughter song because that’s just not me. I love my dad and we are close, but I am much closer to my mom. Also, it’s a little more upbeat than a typical ballad, which I like. I will however be bawling through the whole thing, I’m sure. I’m a sap.
