One of the songs we are considering for our first dance is Songbird (the Eva Cassidy version).  I absolutely love the lyrics:

 

"For you there’ll be no crying
For you the sun will be shining
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before

To you, I would give the world
To you, I’d never be cold
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before"

Ours is The Luckiest by Ben Folds…

 

 "Next door there’s an old man who lived to his nineties
And one day passed away in his sleep
And his wife; she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong
That I know

That I am
I am
I am
The luckiest"

 

I know I’m going to start crying during this part… I lived next door to my great-grandparents for 2 years. They were married for 72 years. Then in March, exactly one week after I left for my summer sabatical, my great-grandfather passed away in his sleep.They were married when he was 20 and she was 18 and experienced more in their lifetime than anyone else I know.

The Luckiest will be sung at our wedding as well and I also cry at that part!

Our song is True Companion by Marc Cohn and will be played in a slideshow before our wedding:

"So don’t you dare and try to walk away
I’ve got my heart set on our wedding day
I’ve got this vision of a girl in white
Made my decision that it’s you alright
And when I take your hand
I’ll watch my heart set sail
I’ll take my trembling fingers
And I’ll lift up your veil
Then I’ll take you home
And with wild abandon
Make love to you just like a true companion
You are my true companion
I got a true companion
True companion

When the years have done irreparable harm
I can see us walking slowly arm in arm
Just like the couple on the corner do
‘Cause girl I will always be in love with you
And when I look in your eyes
I’ll still see that spark
Until the shadows fall
Until the room grows dark
Then when I leave this earth
I’ll be with the angels standin’
I’ll be out there waiting for my true companion
Just for my true companion
True companion"

I loove it!

My husband wanted to do The Luckiest for our first dance and I just couldn’t… that song just makes me so sad, even though I guess it’s supposed to be romantic.

My sister and her husband had Songbird at the ceremony.  I never knew the lyrics.  Thanks!

 

I get misty when I read vows.  They’re always so heartfelt.  *tear!*

Wow. I just downloaded "The Luckiest." I had not heard it before, and now, here I am sobbing tears of joy! What a gorgeous song. I found a wonderful a cappella version too… amazing lyrics! Thanks brides!
