Amelia (You've Already Changed My World)

about

Our first daughter was just 3 months old when I wrote this song and I already felt like I'd known her forever. She's growing up so fast and it's happening right under my nose, yet I still feel like I'm missing it somehow. She's truly the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me and I hope she likes the song Daddy wrote for her when she's grown.

lyrics

You could be a teacher, a sculptor, or a maid
You could be an actress, I know you’d light up any stage
You could be most anything your little heart desires
Your infinite potential’s something I truly admire

You could be an artist, conjure life from a blank page
You could be an author, so many worthwhile words to say
You may be a mother, teach your children to be brave
You may be a missionary, so many souls to save

But you’ve already changed my world
My precious little baby girl
And whatever you choose, you’ll be everything to me
Yeah, you’ve already changed my world

You could have been born in Portugal, to a family in Spain
You could have been born years ago in some long-forgotten age
You could have been an Anaiyah, a Kairi, or a Jane
I thank God that you’re Amelia, born in this time, in this place

‘Cuz you’ve already changed my world
My precious little baby girl
And whatever may come, you’ll be everything to me
Yeah, you’ve already changed my world

Soon you will be walking, running, spreading wings to fly
Soon you will be talking, shouting, singing away the night
Soon you will be grown and leaving, your destiny to find
You’ll always have a home here, in your mother’s heart and mine

And you’ve already changed my world
My precious little baby girl
And whatever may come, you’ll be everything to me
Yeah, you’ve already changed my world
You’ve already changed my world
Yeah, you’ve already changed my world
