Collin Raye - I Wish I Could Lyrics




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 wanna take your picture
How'd you ever get so big
I 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 you whisper
Daddy, we forgot to pray

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

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

    as a father of a cute and amazing boy, I cry to hear this song.. always love this song...

    Travis Deveraux

    I 2nd that. I have a 5 year old boy and I cry every time as well, just can't hold in the tears. I have always loved this song, even long before my son came into the world but it gave me deeper meaning since he has been in my life.My "jar" to keep all of our memories is my phone. I have a bout 7000+ pictures and videos of him. It so fun to see him at random look thru all the pictures and remember moments.

  7. Amy Tice

    I wish I could save every moment with my little ones. I would lock the memories in a waterproof box with a really strong lock so that nobody could get to them! Not even the best lock picker out there can touch my special memories!

    allan marquez

    I grow up I hide my real felling to my mother,but to be honest and God knows I love my mother very much.
