My Playlist - Butterfly Kisses

Bob Carlisle
The fifth song on My Playlist is sung by Bob Carlisle.
He is best known for his hit song "Butterfly Kisses", which appeared on his third solo album' of the same name
The song was written for his daughter Brooke's 16th birthday.

There is also a book based on the chart-topping song by the same name, and is for every dad who knows the joy of raising a daughter, and for every little girl who has experienced the comfort of a father's unconditional love.

My eldest daughter gave her Dad the CD and we have the Little Golden Book Butterfly kisses which is a lovely story explaining butterfly kisses and that special relationship between a father and daughter.

Butterfly Kisses
There's two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven, and she's Daddy's little girl.
Butterfly Kisses - The book
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life, oh but most of all...

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
Walk beside the pony Daddy, it's my first ride
I know the cake looks funny Daddy, but I sure tried
Oh with all that I've done wrong, I must of done something right
To deserve a hug every morning, and butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet sixteen today
She's looking like her Mama, a little more everyday.
Butterfly Kisses - Album
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and makeup, from ribbons and curls.
Trying her wings out in a great big world, but I remember...

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
You know how much I love you Daddy, but if you don't mind
I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time.
With all that I've done wrong, I must of done something right
To deserve her love every morning, and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time, oh, like the wind the years go by.
Precious butterfly, spread your wings and fly.

She'll change her name today, she'll make a promise, and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bridegroom just staring at her
She asks me what I'm thinking, and I said I'm not sure.
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl, and she leaned over...

Gave me butterfly kisses with her Mama there
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
Walk me down the aisle Daddy, it's just about time.
Does my wedding gown look pretty Daddy? Daddy, don't cry.
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must of done something right.

To deserve her love every morning, and butterfly kisses,
I couldn't ask God for more, than this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember...
Every hug in the morning, and butterfly kisses.
