About the song...

Daddy's Angel was inspired by conversations I had with my wife in regards to her relationship with her father. It was a challenging song to write. I had previously written "A Mother's Song" and I was able to experience the emotion in the song writing process as the words and melody came together naturally because of the relationship I had with my mother. It was easy to put to words so to speak. For Daddy's Angel, I relied heavily on my wife Carrie's experiences and memories of her own dad who had passed away just a few years prior. While taking long drives through the country with my wife and newborn son, she would share her thoughts of being a little girl and special memories that she had of her dad. Everything from playing softball in the yard, to laughing, to tucking her in at night became part of our conversations. I used a little bit here and there with the lyrics I ended up with. The main sentiment was all about the lasting memories that were made. 

As I struggled for a hook and a melody I stumbled up on the line "I'm giving you away, but I'm not letting go." That line became the foundation of the song. From there I wanted to build upon the story of a girl growning up in the eyes of her father. From that perspective, it would be an emotional experience as he sees his beautiful daughter grow into a beautiful bride. With the music and melodies complete I focused on the lyrics to make sure that the song said everything that a father would want to say to his daughter on her wedding day. The special moment was specific to the father daughter dance. A heartfelt moment shared by the love that only a daddy and daughter could understand.

Lyrics

Daddy's Angel 

Words and Music: Anthony W. Carter

 
I'm giving you away
But I'm not letting go
The memories, they flood my mind
Of the little girl I know   

Once upon a time
You held my hand so tight
You'd close your eyes and say a prayer
Then I'd kiss your head goodnight  

As we dance I keep our love deep within my heart
And thank God for giving me this angel in my arms…

You're my little angel
So baby don't you cry
It's time to spread your wings and fly
If there's one thing this father knows
The hardest part is letting go
But you will still always be…
Daddy's little angel  

It seems like yesterday 
Has come and gone so fast 
Now my baby's all grown up
But the memories will last  

It's hard to say goodbye
When you've always been so near
But for now I'll hold you tight
Like those times that I hold dear  

As we dance I keep our love deep within my heart
And thank God for giving me this angel in my arms…

You're my little angel
So baby don't you cry
It's time to spread your wings and fly
If there's one thing this father knows
The hardest part is letting go
But you will still always be…
Daddy's little angel   

When you were young, I used to laugh 
At the funny things you'd say
Right now I just can't help but smile…
On this blessed day

You're my little angel
So baby don't you cry
It's time to spread your wings and fly
If there's one thing this father knows
The hardest part is letting go
But you will still always be…
Daddy's little angel   

I'm giving you away, but I'm not letting go...
