Lyrics

A Daughter
Raymy Krumrei and Warren Sellers

Years of praying, months of waiting
Days spent contemplating how your life is gonna change
Hours of labor then a second later
You’re staring at a person who before was just a name
You got the blankets, the crib and the pink paint
You think you’re ready but you ain’t

What is this? It’s like Christmas
Your heart is blowing up
You feel somewhere between Superman and man you’re not enough
It’s crazy amazing and scary beautiful
There’s so much you want to be for her, so much you still don’t know
It’s a game-changer, a man-maker, a life-starter
When you have a daughter

Soon her crawlin’ leads to walkin’
Then she climbs up on your lap like she’s a princess on her throne
One day you wake up and she’s wearing make-up
Instead of doing Barbie’s hair, she’s working on her own
Then it’s boys and some honest conversations
And at times you’re gonna test each other’s patience

What is this tough business
To see her growing up?
Some days you’re still her Superman, somedays you’re out of touch
It’s crazy amazing, she’s scary beautiful
You’d like to lock her up somewhere but love to watch her go.
Yeah It’s a real roller-coaster, a heart-stopper
When you have a daughter

When you have a daughter, you swear much less and open up more doors
When you have a daughter, some jokes aren’t that funny anymore
When you have a daughter It’s worth the changes that you both go through
When she says, “Hey Dad I hope I find a guy who’s just like you”

What is this? It’s like Christmas
‘Cuz when she’s all grown up
You’ll swear that you’ve received the greatest gift there ever was
It’s crazy amazing, life’s so beautiful
How a guy like you could be so lucky you don't know
But you thank God every day that you’ve got her
When you have a daughter
