Diamonds & Daughters

  • First moment I saw your face
    I was moved by amazing grace
    And I cried like a baby
    Just like I'll do walking you down the aisle
    I found fortune like diamonds
    In the love of a daughter
    Worth more than all the gold in the world
    And they say that a son
    Is the pride of a father
    But my heart belongs to my little girl

    Diamonds and daughters
    Precious and few
    Diamonds and daughters
    Timeless and true
    Don't you ever forget that your heart is divine
    You belong to the one who made you sparkle and shine
    Diamonds and daughters

    And I'll be there for you
    Every step of the way
    From your very first breath
    Until my dying day
    And the women I see
    In that white wedding gown
    Is just my little girl
    Saying daddy won't you spin me around

    Diamonds and daughters
    Precious and few
    Diamonds and daughters
    Timeless and true
    Don't you ever forget that your heart is divine
    You belong to the one who made you sparkle and shine
    Diamonds and daughters

    Diamonds and daughters
    Precious and few
    Diamonds and daughters
    Timeless and true
    Don't you ever forget that your heart is divine
    You belong to the one who made you sparkle and shine
    Diamonds and daughters

    First moment I saw your face
    I was moved by amazing grace
