father/daughter song

Recommended Posts

Oh no! What do I do!? I told my dad that he could pick the song that him and I dance to at the wedding...big mistake! He just emailed me the song he chose and I totally hate it! What do I do!? Suck it up (I did tell him he could choose the song) or be honest?

First, what song is it? Secondly, sorry but my opinion is you told him to pick and the song must mean something to him. Maybe you could ask what it means to him?

Here are the lyrics:

 

 

Daughter of Mine

 

 

 

These are the thoughts of a father

On the wedding day of his daughter

As his mind wanders back to the first time he held her

He looks at her now, the same pride in his eyes

As onto the dance floor they glide

This is the dance of the bride and her father

 

Dance with me daughter of mine

On this your wedding day

Dance with me daughter of mine

You'll soon be going away

I loved you since you first began

Now you've found a new man

But I love you so, and this you must know

That my love won't falter

So dance with me daughter

Beautiful daughter of mine

 

We walk down the aisle

On my face there's a smile

But deep in my heart there's a tear

Our friends and relations are here in the church

With smiles on their faces they stare

As we walk t'ward the man who has stolen your heart

And to whom I must give you away

But I wish you love and happiness too

On this your wedding day

 

Chorus

 

The dance has begun

We twirl around the floor

But I know you're not my little girl anymore

A lovely young woman has taken her place

And there's happiness written all over her face

But always remember although we must part

You may leave my arms but never my heart

 

Chorus

Yes, I know. I LOVE the lyrics. I just really dislike the sound of the song itself. I think I will just go for it, because I did give him the go ahead. I just really really dislike the overall sound. I spose it's just one song. And it does mean something to me that he put the effort into finding a song. That itself means something to me, so I guess I just answered my own question.

Totally! Thanks ladies. I was being a baby to begin with! I just needed to take a second and realize that this is something he has put thought into and will have meaning to him. Now I love the song just because of that!

I know what you mean about the "sound" of it! But the lyrics are very very nice - and it is just one song..........I think you are right to just go with it!
