Inspired by his daughter, Isabella, the track perfectly encapsulates the special bond that he shares with his daughter while letting her know that he will always be there for her no matter what while detailing his endless love for her.
“Cause the best parts of me, were given to you and I hope that all of your dreams come true,” Dempsey sings. “and as time goes by I want you to know, that I’ll be with you wherever you go, you’ll always be my baby girl.”
To accompany the song, Dempsey shared a self-produced daddy/daughter music video filmed by his wife, Tiffany. The video includes home footage of his daughter’s cutest childhood moments that brings the perfect visual for the song.
“I was trying to describe her [his daughter, Isabella] and some of the things that I love about her, which is pretty hard to do in a 4 minute song,” Dempsey previously shared of the song. “As well as let her know that she can always count on me to be there for her, with anything that she needs in her life. I can see a lot of myself in her and I really feel like she inherited a lot of my best qualities. So in a lot of ways I’ll always be with her, even when I’m not here anymore and I just wanted her to know that.”
