Last night I thought about
The years gone by
The little girl with curly hair
Who took her smile everywhere
She captured my heart
And made my life worth living for
I watched her grow
It feels like over night
I tried to stop the hands of time
But here we are here hand in mine
She's dancing with me
But I still see that little girl

I see those blue eyes looking up at me
When she thought her daddy knew it all
I see her running to me
Down the hall
It's not that love has changed at all
She's just not that little girl anymore

I see the smile on her face
The gleam in her eye
The time has come to give away
That little girl from yesterday
She's happy as can be
Please take care of my little girl

You have to count right after lightening strikes
Before you hear the thunder roll
You have to hold her under starry skies
And notice the beauty of it all
She's just not that little girl anymore

I never thought it'd be so hard to let go
I know she'll always be my girl
But she's just not that little girl anymore
