    I am dancing with my dad to "Daughter of Mine" by John McDermott. The words are perfect, he wrote it for his own daughter. The words to the song are below.

    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

    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

        I'm really thinking about the song "God Only Knows" by the beach boys. I love it but I'm still contemplating.

          Oh my god, or "Little Miss Magic" by Jimmy Buffett. I know my dad likes that song a lot too. So tough!

                I am in the same boat at you, Indy_Chic. I am not crazy about dancing and neither is my father. We have a really close relationship and I was trying to think of a way to honor him, instead of having to make him (and myself) look like two really uncomfortable people standing in the middle of a dancefloor swaying lol. We both LOVE Jimmy Buffett and his song "Little Miss Magic" so I am taking pictures of the two of us from my birth to current day and making a slide show with that song. He will be shocked and I can't wait to sit right beside him, holding his hand as he watches it for the first time.

                  My bet is Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. I really love song, every time I hear it, it made me cry.

                      I'm torn between My Girl by the Temptations, I Loved Her First by Heartland, I honestly don't love anything. My Dad used to sing My Girl(s) to me and my sister growing up so I tend to lean more towards that one. But doesn't it talk about a lover and not father daughter, or am I making too much out of it? I Loved Her First makes me ball my eyes out, but FI thinks its SOOO boring! Not sure... and then there is "Michelle" by the Beatles. With my name being Michele (spelled differently), my Dad used to always sing that one to me too. Any advice??
