FC: Songs for Kylie
1: Dearest Kylie, I have wanted to make this book for you ever since you were first born. Every single day, you flood me with joy that you're in my life, and gratitude to God for giving you to me. The way I feel about you can hardly be put into words, but as we go through each day, listening to music together, I catch lyrics that make me think of my precious baby Kylie. You are so sweet and beautiful on your own, but when I hear these words being sung, it doesn't matter that they were written for the enjoyment of millions of people. In my eyes, you're the only person in the world for whom each song could possibly have been written. Any song may talk about a sweet personality quirk, a feature of beauty, or a parent's hopes for her child. (Some of them are even romantic songs, but I just focus on the specific lyrics that hold meaning for you.) Either way, this book is a small way for me to express how I feel about you, my wonderful little daughter. To have made you is the best thing I have ever done. If you have any brothers or sisters, the same will hold true for them...but right now, as I make this book, you are my one baby, my sweetest and most profound miracle. I have high hopes for you as you grow up, and I hope you will let me be a guide to you. I'm not the smartest or most efficient person in the world, but I do know some things about life--I've led a good one. Please take the words in this book to heart because that is exactly where they come from: My heart to yours, Mom
3: True Love (the way I sing it to you at bedtime, and the way I sang it when you were born) Suntanned, windblown, [Mom and daughter] at last alone. Feeling far above par, Oh, how lucky we are That I give to you, And you give to me, True love, True love; So on and on, It'll always be True love, True love. For you and I have a guardian angel on high With nothing to do But to give to you And to give to me Love forever true.
5: My Cup Runneth Over Sometimes in the morning, When shadows are deep, I lie here beside you Just watching you sleep, And sometimes I whisper What I'm thinking of, "My cup runneth over with love."
7: You'll Be In My Heart Come stop your crying, it will be alright. Just take my hand, hold it tight. I will protect you From all around you, I will be here, don't you cry. For one so small, you seem so strong. My arms will hold you, keep you safe and warm. This bond between us Can't be broken. I will be here, don't you cry. 'Cause you'll be in my heart. Yes, you'll be in my heart. From this day on, now and forevermore. You'll be in my heart, No matter what they say, You'll be here in my heart...always.
9: Jesus Loves Me Jesus loves me, this I know For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. They are weak, but He is strong. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me. The Bible tells me so.
11: Crowning Glory Some girls are fair. Some are jolly and fit. Some have a lighthearted air, Or a well-honed wit. Each one's a jewel With a singular shine, A work of art With its own rare design. Dear little girl, You are terribly blessed. But it's your heart of gold I love the best. And that will be your crowning glory Your whole life through. It'll always be your crowning glory, The most glorious part of you.
13: Firework ...You just gotta ignite the light And let it shine Just own the night Like the Fourth of July. 'Cause baby you're a firework!! Come on, show 'em what you're worth. Make 'em go, "Oh, oh, oh," As you shoot across the sky-y-y. Baby you're a firework! Come on, let your colors burst. Make 'em go, "Oh, oh, oh." You're gonna leave 'em falling dow-ow-own. You don't have to feel like a wasted space. You're original. You cannot be replaced. If you only knew what the future holds-- After a hurricane Comes a rainbow...
15: The Rocking Chair The Sandman passed me by and I Can't get to sleep. I'm tossing and turning when Mom comes in, And she kisses me on the cheek; And she knows just what the trouble is As she brushes a lock of my hair, And she picks me up and she carries me Over to the rocking chair And we go rockin', rockin', Rockin' in the rocking chair. Rockin', rockin', Rockin' in the rocking chair. Mommy's singing a song, And I am humming along, As we go rockin', rockin', Rockin'...in the rocking chair.
17: Blue Eyes Blue eyes Baby's got blue eyes Like a deep blue sea On a blue blue day. Blue eyes Baby's got blue eyes. When the morning comes I'll be far away | Blue eyes Baby's got blue eyes Like a clear blue sky Watching over me. Blue eyes Ooo, I love blue eyes. When I'm by her side, Where I long to be, I will see | Blue eyes laughing in the sun Laughing in the rain. Baby's got blue eyes And I am home...again.
19: True Colors ...I see your true colors Shining through. I see your true colors, And that's why I love you, So don't be afraid To let them show: Your true colors, True colors Are beautiful, Like a rainbow.
21: Just the Way You Are Oh, her eyes, her eyes, Make the stars look like they're not shining. Her hair, her hair, Falls perfectly without her trying. She's so beautiful, And I tell her every day... Oh, you know you know you know I'd never ask you to change. If perfect's what you're searching for, Then just stay the same. So, don't even bother asking if you look okay; You know I'll say, "When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change. 'Cause you're amazing just the way you are. And when you smile, The whole world stops and stares for a while. 'Cause girl you're amazing just the way you are."
23: Beautiful I'm so beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, uh, oh, uh, oh I'm so beautiful, so natural, not typical... I'm so beautiful There's nobody else here like me. I'm so B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L, That's me.
25: Let's Go There's never a "right" time To get up and live life-- You only got one try, So take what you've been given and Make time To turn someone's day bright, And change how we live life. The future's what we make it So let's go.
