"Let Them Be Little" as written by Richie Mcdonald and Billy Dean....
I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
How it amazes me, you're changing with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms, they grow up all too soon

So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little

I've never felt so much in one little tender touch
I live for those kisses, prayers, and your wishes
Now that you're teaching me things only a child can see
Every night while we're on our knees all I ask is please

Let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little

So innocent, a precious soul
You turn around
It's time to let them go

So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little

Let them be little

    General CommentIt's just about letting kids be kids. It's a sweet song - After all, they're only kids once. Once they grow up, that time is gone forever.

    General CommentI love this song so much. It's beautiful. It's just about letting kids be kids, letting them enjoy their childhood while they can. After all, it only last a short 18 years, maybe less for some.

    This was a song for me and my best friend, back in the day. It's been awhile, but every time I watch our DVD, it just brings me back and makes me regret letting my childhood slip away because I tried to grow up too fast.
