Looking out my window 
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 pretty please 
I want to take your picture
How'd you ever get so big 
I gotta take your picture
And hold on to the mem'ry before 
The whole things 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 
You whisper "daddy we forgot to pray"
I wish I could save these moments

When I watch you sleeping 
All my worries slip away
A little bit of heaven 
Close on your gentle face
I wish I could save these moments
