I've rehearsed this day a thousand times
I've played this scene out in my mind
You spread your wings, you need to fly
It breaks my heart to say goodbye
These arms of mine wanna pull you close
But I love you enough to let you go

My mind goes back to memories
Of pony rides upon my knee
First day of school, your brand new bike
And football games on Friday nights
And through the years I've watched you grow
And I love you enough to let you go

Don't look back when you drive away
I don't wanna change your mind
I know in all your eighteen years
You've never seen your daddy cry

So many things I wanna say
You'll meet new friends, you'll be okay
I'll pray for you out on your own
But don't forget your way back home
And though I may not let it show
I love you enough to let you go

Don't look back when you drive away
I don't wanna change your mind
I know in all your eighteen years
You've never seen your daddy cry

These arms of mine wanna pull you close
But I love you enough to let you go
