"Butterfly Kisses"
  Song sung by Bob Carlisle

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven,
And she's daddy's little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed each night
She talks to Jesus as I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life,
But most of all for
Butterfly Kisses
after bedtime prayer,
stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride"
and "I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I
sure tried,"
Oh with all that I've done wrong,
I must've done something right
To deserve a hug every morning
And butterfly kisses at night...

Sweet Sixteen today
She's lookin' like her momma
A little more every day
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and makeup
From ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember Butterfly Kisses
After bedtime prayer
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair,
"You know how much I love you, Daddy,
but if you don't mind, I'm only gonna kiss you
on the cheek this time,"
Oh with all that I've done wrong
I must've done something right
To deserve her love every morning
And butterfly kisses at night..

Like the wind the years go by
        (Precious butterfly)
Spread your wings and fly.....

She'll change her name today
She'll make a promise,
And I'll give her away
Standing in the brideroom
Just staring at her
She asks me what I'm thinking,
And I say I'm not sure
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl
She leaned over
Gave me butterfly kisses
With her momma there
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy, it's just about time"
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy?"
"Daddy, don't cry!"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must've done something right
I couldn't ask God for more,
then this is what love is
I know I've gotta let her go,
But I'll always remember...
Every hug in the morning
And butterfly kisses at night
