Butterfly by wipetty Butterfly by wipetty
Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle

I love this song.




There're two things I know for sure.

She was sent here from heaven, and she is daddy's little girl.

As I drop to my knees by her bed at night, she talks to Jesus

And I close my eyes and I thank God for all of the joy in my life.

Oh but most of all.

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer

Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.

Walk beside the pony daddy, it's my first ride

I know the cake looks funny daddy, but I sure tried.

Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right

To deserve a hug every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet sixteen today.

She's looking like her mama, 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 great big world

But I remember

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer

Sticking 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 have done something right

To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

(Choir: All the precious time)

Oh, like the wind the years go by

(Choir: 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 bride room, just staring at her.

She asks me what I'm thinking

And I said I'm not sure

I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl

She leaned over...

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,

Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.

Walk me down the aisle daddy, it's about time

Does my wedding gown look pretty daddy?

Daddy don't cry

Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right

To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses.

I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is

I know I got to let her go...but I'll always remember...

Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses...

Hi there! This is a very beautiful piece, and I love that this was inspired by the Butterfly Kisses song. That was me and my dad's song when I was a little girl, and will probably be our daddy/daughter dance at my wedding =)
Anyways, I was wondering if it would be alright with you if I used some of this design to make a t-shirt for my secret santa at work? I'm only giving it to her as a gift, and if I put pictures of it up, of course I'd give you credit =)
