I Loved Her First (Heartland)

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 and 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-faced kid that I knew The one that I read all those fairy tales 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 But I loved her first and 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
