Verse 1

In my mind I know it’s time

To let her spread her wings

She has to let her voice fly

And I’ve to let her sing


Verse 2

She has a smile on her face

As long as a summer’s day

She can’t wait to start her new life

And I’ve to step away


Bridge 1

But it’s hard to do…feeling like a fool

This heart of mine still aches

As she holds my hand and whispered in my ear

A memory remains


Chorus

From the first day of the rest of her life

She’s never left my side

She’s given me so much pride

I’m just along for the ride

A little voice inside my head

Is saying “Let her on her way”

But my heart is asking

If there’s a chance

Can she stay


Verse 3

Tell me where the time has gone

I wish to God I knew

It’s like an old forgotten song

In my heart she sings it too


Verse 4

Wish I could make her stay the same

A child in every single way

And as she grows into a lady

I gotta let her go someday


Bridge 2

But it’s hard to do..it all went by too soon

The moments drift away

As I close my eyes and think of all those years

The memories remain


Chorus

From the first day of the rest of her life

She’s never left my side

She’s given me so much pride

I’m just along for the ride

A little voice inside my head

Is saying “Let her on her way”

But my heart’s the one that’s asking

If there’s a chance

Can she stay


Verse 5

In my mind I know it’s time

The hourglass stood still

And as I walk her down the aisle

I’m holding back the tears


Verse 6

She’s got a smile on her face

I lift her veil and gave her a kiss

And as she turned to start her new life

I said “Your daddy’s here to stay”


Chorus

On this first day of the rest of your life

I’ll never leave your side

You’ve given me so much pride

I’m just along for the ride

A little voice inside my head

Is saying “Let her on her way”

But my heart’s the one that’s asking

If there’s a chance

Can you stay




“One day…I tell ya…there’s going to be a father that chooses to either walk his daughter officially down the aisle to this song or set this melody as the background to the traditional father-daughter dance…and very shortly after that, singer/songwriter Dennis Sy is going to have to answer for an entire flood of tears. “


- Sleeping Bag Studios


“The emotion is powerful, clear and insightfully well-woven into this tale, the imagery is clear and the story comes alive in a classic songwriter’s style.”

- Sleeping Bag Studios

“That kind of storyteller’s gift is a real part of the magic of this particular single from Sy, and definitely every indication of an artist that’s sharply focused & dedicated completely to the craft of songwriting.”
