Story Behind the Song

I wrote this when my step-daughter got married a few years ago. I watched her grow up and loved her like my own and felt all the things that a FATHER should feel (even though I didn't walk her down the aisle) when his daughter gets married. The song is th

Lyrics

"TODAY"
(Dwain C. Hathaway)
© 2002 D.C. Hathaway Music

Here it is, your wedding day. I'm not the one who gave you away
but I still love you like my own. I'm so amazed how fast you've grown.
I love who you've turned out to be and thanks for all you've given me.
I feel the same way fathers do when it comes to lovin' you TODAY.

I always knew TODAY would come but it came so fast part of me is numb.
I sift through memories of you as a little girl doin' what they do.
You stole my heart from the word "HELLO" and today I'm lettin' go
the same way a father does. I love you why......well just because TODAY.

CHORUS:

TODAY'S the day a new day begins with a love as fresh as a soft blown wind.
A little girl becomes a bride with the man of her dreams standing by her side.
I didn't walk you down the aisle but I still wore a father's smile.
I only wanted you to know just how much I love you so TODAY.

BRIDGE:

You own a part of me I just can't hide. TODAY I feel a father's pride
with a father's heart that I can't overcome even though I'm just the guy who married Mom.
______________________________________________________________________

There's so many things I want to say but it's time for you to be on your way.
TODAY begins the rest of your life, hand in hand, as man and wife.
Before you go could I have this dance. I may never get another chance.
I hope that all your dreams come true with all the love I wish for you TODAY.
