Ben rector - Daughter

Are you okay if I just sing this song real quick?
Yeah, wait, loud
I sing generally pretty loud
Sing loud again
Okay, here we go

Lately I've been going through changes
I've been doing a little light rearranging
Blew up my whole life, I'm not complaining
Just thought I'd start with some honesty
I used to only be concerned with my career getting bigger
I started zoomin' out and seeing big pictures
I started focusin' on my father figure
And I see things a little differently

'Cause I got a daughter now
The most perfect tiny human
I got a daughter now
No idea what I'm doing
But the way that she smiles and the way that she laughs
Gives me some kind of peace like I never had
I guess I see what all the fuss is about
'Cause I got a daughter
I got a daughter now


And if I'm honest I love it
I wear dumb clothes now and I'm like what of it
There are innumerable things that I'm no longer above
That's more than fine with me, yeah
If that jar is stuck hand it, here I can handle it
If that knee's scraped, baby, I can examine it
Judge me 'til you walk a mile in my socks and my sandals, kid

'Cause I got a daughter now
And she is everything to me
I got a daughter now
And suddenly I cry at movies
And the way that she smiles and the way that she laughs
Gives me some kind of peace like I never had
Guess I see what all the big whoop is about
'Cause I got a daughter
I got a daughter now
Yeah, I got a daughter now

Like I said, I started making some changes
I said no to some radio stations
I made some time for some family vacations
'Cause that's who I wanna be
'Cause my biggest fan doesn't care if I'm famous
Even though the people know what my name is
Yeah, like I said, I started making some changes
To be who I wanna be

'Cause I got a daughter now
And she is everything to me
I got a daughter now
And no idea what I'm doing
But the way that she smiles and the way that she laughs
Gives me some kind of peace like I never have had
I guess I see a bit different than now, oh yeah
I guess I understand what all the fuss is about
'Cause I got a daughter
I got a daughter now
I got a daughter now
