lyrics

MY LITTLE ANGEL
Greg Masiello / Darden Smith

You were seven years when I got the call
You had to be strong, stand up big tall
Daddy’s little girl all set to grow
Front teeth missing, hair in a bow
I’d lay in my bunk biding my time
Thinking bout that little girl of mine
Time just crawled, I wished it would fly
I’d a given anything to sing you a lullaby

As that year went by I saw you there
Larger than life playing truth or dare
Sitting on the edge fifty feet high
Spreading your wings like you’re gonna fly
My little angel
My little angel

You built sand castles on the white sea shore
Fussed with your momma over dresses and chores
I did my time and when I came home again
You were more a woman than a girl by then
Standing in the kitchen on a Tuesday night
Looking at your school picture and your smile so bright
I just wanted to hold you, I fought back the tears
Because I knew that I could never get back those years

As time goes by I will see you there
Larger than life playing truth or dare
Sitting on the edge fifty feet high
Spreading your wings girl you’re gonna fly
My little angel
My little angel
My little angel
You’ll always be
My little angel
