Step-father / daughter dance

I am having a hard time finding a song appropriate for my step-father and I to dance to. My real father will be walking me down the isle and we will have a father/daughter dance, however, I want to do something special for my step-father. He has been around since I was about 6 years old but we are not as close as my father and I are. I guess what I am asking is, are there any songs out there directed more towards a step-father who you are not extremely close to but appreciate everything he has done for you? Also, if you have any other ideas of ways to include a step-parent in the ceremony/reception... that would be very helpful.

This is tough since the lyrics of a song can be so personal but you can check out this CD:

Yours, Mine and Ours - Wedding Music for Stepfamilies

There is a song by Brad Paisley that is sort of good for stepfathers except it's a young man singing. It's called "He Didn't Have to Be" and it's off his Who Needs Pictures album. You can listen to a clip of it by clicking that link above. It's a good CD anyway, even if the song isn't exactly right for you!

What you describe is a very delicate situation. has a song written especially for a stepfather called "When I Needed You Most" but it is more for a stepfather who is very close. You might consider a song by Ronnie Milsap called "What a Difference You've Made in My Life" which would acknowledge how you feel about him, but not suggest in any way that he has taken your fathers place.
