It’s hard to think of an extremely personal song for someone we know nothing about… what points do you want the song to pick up on? 

Maybe pick a song that was played at dances when you first got together?  Or are you looking for a song that highlights first love?  Or is silly/fun/romantic… Or…?

@SapphireSun:  +1- that fact that you are high school sweethearts doesn’t really help pick a song. Is there a certain personality trait you want to focus on?

Based on what you have provided here is a song about being a long time:

Just based on “highschool sweethearts”, “my first, my last, my everything” pops to mind… haha

From 2001 – “Hanging by a moment”, “Only Time”, “This I Promise you” (kinda kidding), “Here’s to the night”.

If you’re a “best friends” kind of couple… something like “Lucky”, “Better Together”?

I know you’re not a country fan but I’d consider Shania Twain, You’re Still the One. Non-country check out Ellie Goulding, Still Falling For You – it’s a little upbeat but you might be able to make it work. We danced ballroom to Come to Me by Goo Goo Dolls and it looked great so I wouldn’t rule out faster paced music. Cupid by Daniel Powter (watch the music video) and Life is Better with You by Micheal Franti might work. They’re all a bit more upbeat though.
