HEARTLAND


I Loved Her First Lyrics

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other's face
So much in love, you're alone in this place
Like there's nobody else in the world

I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me, just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl

Time changes everything, life must go on
And I'm not gonna stand in your way

But I loved her first, I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep

And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first

How could that beautiful woman with you
Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
The one that I read all those fairytales to
And tucked into bed all those nights

And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time

I loved her first, I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep

And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first

From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep

Someday you might know what I'm going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
I loved her first

My daughter picked this song out for our daddy-daughter dance without letting me hear the song first. WHen i heard it on March 20, 2011 at approx 7pm, I was balling like a baby! Awesome choice sweetie

Ive listened to country for a long time, and It's songs like these that always keep my attn, with their focus on emotions. This song always says to me, 'Go follow your heart... But always remember...'

I've only heard this song once and I loved it. I'll have to get a copy. I intend reading some of it at my daughter's wedding this year as I have to change the word 'father' to 'mother'. It's beautiful

This is a bad song. The love between father and daughter is and should be very different than the love between her and partner. This song makes them compete, and says dad had the better claim. WRONG
