Verse 1
In my mind I know it’s time
To let her spread her wings
She has to let her voice fly
And I’ve to let her sing
Verse 2
She has a smile on her face
As long as a summer’s day
She can’t wait to start her new life
And I’ve to step away
Bridge 1
But it’s hard to do…feeling like a fool
This heart of mine still aches
As she holds my hand and whispered in my ear
A memory remains
Chorus
From the first day of the rest of her life
She’s never left my side
She’s given me so much pride
I’m just along for the ride
A little voice inside my head
Is saying “Let her on her way”
But my heart is asking
If there’s a chance
Can she stay
Verse 3
Tell me where the time has gone
I wish to God I knew
It’s like an old forgotten song
In my heart she sings it too
Verse 4
Wish I could make her stay the same
A child in every single way
And as she grows into a lady
I gotta let her go someday
Bridge 2
But it’s hard to do..it all went by too soon
The moments drift away
As I close my eyes and think of all those years
The memories remain
Chorus
From the first day of the rest of her life
She’s never left my side
She’s given me so much pride
I’m just along for the ride
A little voice inside my head
Is saying “Let her on her way”
But my heart’s the one that’s asking
If there’s a chance
Can she stay
Verse 5
In my mind I know it’s time
The hourglass stood still
And as I walk her down the aisle
I’m holding back the tears
Verse 6
She’s got a smile on her face
I lift her veil and gave her a kiss
And as she turned to start her new life
I said “Your daddy’s here to stay”
Chorus
On this first day of the rest of your life
I’ll never leave your side
You’ve given me so much pride
I’m just along for the ride
A little voice inside my head
Is saying “Let her on her way”
But my heart’s the one that’s asking
If there’s a chance
Can you stay
