Lyrics

I was only 4 years old when I gave my heart to you.
"dad I want to marry you," I said and you just grinned.
With my tiny feet on top of yours I'd hold on to your hand,
A princess in a fairy tale had never danced so grand,

My bedtime came and I'd start to cry as you'd turn out the light,
You'd chase the monsters from under my bed as you'd tuck me in at night,
With my arms wrapped tight around your neck, I'd beg for you to stay,
And with that calm and loving voice, this is what you'd say,

Chorus
Don't be afrain I will always be near,
As long as I live you have nothing to fear,
I'll slay all your dragons and be your white knight,
Nothing can keep us apart, I'm always as close as your heart,

3rd
Those little girl memories are treasures now as I sit here by your side,
I always thought you'd live forever, but I know you're growing tired,
I know you need to go dad,
And I'm trying to be strong,
But I wish I had just one more dance,
To Our old favorite song,

Repeat Chorus

I'm fighting back the tears, I know it has to be this way,
And with one last gentle breath, I know I heard you say,

Don't be afraid,

I'm always as close as your heart,

I Love you daddy. Save me a dance.
