Lyrics

First steps, first words
Seems like yesterday you were just a girl
Skinned knees, climbing trees
All those memories so close to me
Now you’re a woman on your own
All in love and nearly gone
But you’ll always be my baby
No matter where you are
You’ll always be my baby
Forever in my heart
16, first car
21 and there’s a broken heart
High heels, strong will
In my eyes I see a young child still
But you’re a woman on your own
All in love and nearly gone
But you’ll always be my baby
No matter where you are
You’ll always be my baby
Forever in my heart
So I say a prayer every day
That God will guide you as you find your way
You know that I’m near
Anytime my love is always here
‘Cause you’ll always be my baby
No matter where you are
You’ll always be my baby
Forever in my heart
Forever in my heart
Forever in my heart
