Jenny, my 8 year old daughter, obliged me and was willing to learn this song and sing with me :D
She was excited to hear other songwriters would listen and post responses :note1:

Daddies and Daughters

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=7341920

Sing, sing with me now of a love deeper than words
Sing, sing with me now of a father and his girl

You are amazing and capture my heart
Just because of who you are

You are my strength and believe in me
You make me feel like a star

Hold, hold my now, your hugs open up my soul
Hold, hold me now, tell me we'll never grow old

I treasure you more than life itself
You are my joy and wealth

You show your love and I know you care
It feels like I am dancing on air

And for a life time you will be
The one I love so tenderly
Whatever changes whatever comes
Daddies' and daughters' hearts will always beat as one

Dream, dream with me now with each day a blessing comes true
Dream, dream with me now everyday I love being with you

You say some day you want a man like me
To love like I love your mother

Some day I will find my Prince Charming
But you're my king there is no other

And for a life time you will be
The one I love so tenderly
Whatever changes whatever comes
Daddies' and daughters' hearts will always beat as one

Wow!!!!!!! Nice job!!! I think this was the best one I've heard since joining this group. It just worked really really well. Beautiful.

In Space, no one can hear me sing!

Thanks guys for the affirmations :D The nicest thing was having my wife get interested in the song. It isn't very often she is, but she emailed her play group parents:

> Hi Playgroup Moms and Dads,
> I just want to share James' new song. I think this one
> topped my favorites. It's just the "rough
> copy" but sounds good to me. They recorded it last last
> night. Go to the website and click the 1st song

:mrgreen:

Anyway, it's not a sacred cow so don't be afraid to slaughter a part that might not be working...those make the best hamburgers :wink:

I wouldn't touch it.

Hey James - beautiful. You may be wondering why I've been silent this week (1) I have been pretty sick and completely unmotivated to do anything and [as a complete contrast to #1] (2) I found out my wife's pregnant!!! So maybe in 9 years or so, I'll have a duet partner too. :)

And my Soundclick Page to listen to my song submissions: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=903876

Wow!
Have you been experiencing the classic morning sickness symptoms . . . of pregnancy?
Congratulations, Germ
My best wishes to all three of you.

Awww! That is sooo sweet. When my son was little he used to come over and mute the strings when I sang and played! (everyone's a critic) :roll:
When does your daughter start the guitar lessons? I see a great future as a great female singer-songwriter for her!

Falling in love is like learning to play the guitar; first you learn to follow the rules, then you learn to play with your heart.

so true! :lol:

She has been taking piano lessons for about a year, and at school they just started learning the recorder. She was very excited to play "Hot Crossed Buns" for me last night. She seems to favor the theatrical life. Last year the school did Seussical and this year they will perform Beauty and the Beast in about 2 weeks so she has been quite busy with after school and Saturday practices.
...I was glad she fit me into her busy schedule :lol:

Thanks for the listen and the post.

LOL, that's the truth too, my son does that now, but I think he just wants me to shut up and feed him :lol: or just stop singing

In Space, no one can hear me sing!

That is beautiful. Kudos to Jenny and her wonderful voice. I like the progression in the chorus too.

Thank you for posting this,
