Original Music by Dave Anthony
Sing For Me (featuring Shannon Rae)
Lyrics
Lyin' on his dyin' bed
I can't forget what daddy said
Sing for me sweet little girl of mine
I held his hand I held my tears
And sang a song to stop my fears
I sang from six until a quarter to nine
Then he looked in my eyes
And my tears started to run
I gently kissed his cheek
But I knew his life was almost done
He touched my hand he closed his eyes
he took a breath and then he sighed
Sing for me sweet little girl of mine
Now every song I sing for you
No matter where you are
No matter what I do
Now I sing most every day
In studios I sing for pay
And I'm workin' almost every day
Though the songs are rarely good
I always do the best I could
Singing songs I'd rather throw away
But they don't know what makes me sing
deep inside what's happening
In my heart I'm always there with you
Now every song I sing for you
No matter where you are
No matter what I do
You'll always be a part of me
And deep inside I'll always be
Your little girl, your sweetest little girl
