I started writing this song on Father's day, for my dad...and then it became a song for my husband and children as well. :)


It was just me and mom, I was only three
One perfect day you came along, swept her off her feet
While you were asking her to dance
I was asking please, would you be my daddy
and the rest is history
I remember many nights, sitting on your knee
And all along I’ve held tight to these words you said to me

We’re a family
and that’s all we need
when life hands you a bitter cup
you’ve still got something sweet
in this family
There will always be
a place to lay your head and rest your feet
cause we’re a family

Then I grew up, fell in love
And though he wanted me to stay
One beautiful spring morning
Daddy gave me away
All around were wedding bells, birds singing in the trees
But all I heard was my new love and what he said to me,
I’m gonna hold your hand come life or death and i promise
I will love you until my dying breath

It’s joy it’s pain
It’s loss it’s gain
Things I wouldn’t trade

The years are flying by now as we’re watchin you kids
Growing up so fast, like our parents say we did
We hold you close and never want
to let you go
But as you make your own way we pray you’ll always know
