I Loved Her First

Look at the two of you – dancing that way
Lost in the moment – and each other’s face
So much in love – you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her – not long ago
I was her number one – she told me so
And she still means the world to me – just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything – life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way

I loved her first – I held her first
And a place in my heart – Will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away – I loved her first

How could that beautiful – woman with you
Be the same freckle faced – kid that I knew
The one that I read – all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time

Chorus

~short solo section~

From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
I loved her first
