Looking out my window
I see you playing in the leaves
It's amazing how a little girl
Means all the world to me
When I tell you that I love you
I love you more than words can say

Smile, say cheese, say pretty please
I wanna take your picture
How'd you ever get so big?
I've gotta take your picture
Hold on to the memory
Before the whole thing slips away

I wish I could save these moments
And put 'em in a jar
I wish I could stop the world from turning
Keep things just the way they are

I wish I could shelter you from everything
Not pure and sweet and good
I know I can't, I know I can't
But I wish I could

When you kiss me for no reason
It goes straight to my heart
When I feel your arms around me
I almost fall apart
It's time for bed and you whisper
"Daddy, we forgot to pray, whoa"

I wish I could save these moments
And put 'em in a jar
I wish I could stop the world from turning
Keep things just the way they are

I wish I could shelter you from everything
Not pure and sweet and good
I know I can't, I know I can't
But I wish I could, oh

And when I watch you sleeping
All my worries fade away
A little bit of heaven
Glows on your angelic face

I wish I could save these moments
And put 'em in a jar
I wish I could stop the world from turning
Keep things just the way they are

I wish I could shelter you from everything
Not pure and sweet and good
I know I can't, I know I can't, I know I can't
But I wish I could, ooh, I wish I could
