Ode To Nia
Gillian and I have our song, "There Goes My Life" by Kenny Chesney. Even though we're not huge fans of the genre, it's a Country song but it is truly beautiful. I remember singing it with Gillian at my brothers wedding:
Since we're having another girl I felt like even though Nia isn't born yet we needed a song as well, and once again turned to Country (I don;t see T-pain or Justin Timberlake writing a song about daughters). I chose "My Little Girl" from Tim McGraw. I defy you to not be in tears after listening to this song even if you don't like Country music.
Here's the lyrics:
Tim McGraw, My Little Girl Lyrics
Gotta hold on easy as I let you go.
Gonna tell you how much I love you,
though you think you already know.
I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm.
You've had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born.
Your beautiful baby from the outside in.
Chase your dreams but always know the road that'll lead you home again.
Go on, take on this whole world.
But to me you know you'll always be, my little girl.
When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone.
Now look at you, I've turned around and you've almost grown.
Sometimes you're asleep I whisper "I Love You!" in the moonlight at your door.
As I walk away, I hear you say, "Daddy Love You More!".
Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand.
But I won't say "yes" to him unless I know, he's the half
that makes you whole, he has a poet's soul, and the heart of a man's man.
I know he'll say that he's in love.
But between you and me. He won't be good enough!
