I’m Too Young To Have A Teenage Daughter!

cassandEI’ve been saying this phrase over and over for the past week, but it hasn’t helped.

It’s true… as of today, I am the father of a teenage girl. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! It seems like only yesterday we were bringing Cassidy home from the hospital. For the past 13 years, she has brought us lots of funny moments, a few not-so-funny moments, and LOTS of joy! I am very thankful that God started me out as a dad by giving her to me, and I am very proud of the young lady she is growing into!

The night before Cass was born,  I felt inspired to write a song to let her know that I would always be there for her. From the beginning, I wanted this song to be different from all the other songs I had written, so I came up with the idea of recording her “in-utero” heartbeat and using it as part of the rhythm track, then I built the rest of the music around that sound. I still get chills when the song starts, because that heartbeat was the first sound that I ever heard from my little girl. It was the beginning of our relationship.

This is the song that resulted from that heartbeat. If you like it, feel free to click the “share” button and spread it around.

The Lyrics:

Little angel lay down your head
Close your eyes and go to sleep
There’s no need for you to be afraid
You are safe in your Daddy’s arms
You mean more than anything to me
And I love you so
So little angel don’t be afraid
You are safe in my heart

Little angel I am here
To watch you as you learn and grow
Little angel my love for you
Is more than you’ll ever know
You mean more than anything to me
And I love you so
So little angel don’t be afraid
You are safe in my heart

Little angel you’ll always be
Safe in my heart

Happy Birthday, Cass! I Love You!
