Our first dance song is going to be “Stay With You” by John Legend.  I actually love every word of it, which is rare!  But my favorite is the chorus:

Oh I will stay with you
Through the ups and the downs
Oh I will stay with you
When no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we’ll be alright
I will stay with you

I am almost crying listening to it now 🙂

Our first dance/”our” song is Crazy Love by Michael Buble.  I can’t remember the exact words, but one of the verses in the song says “And when I’m returning from so far away, she gives me some sweet lovin, brighten up my day.”  This touched both of us because our whole relationship and 10 months into our marriage was defined by being apart due to his military service.  There were many many many times he “returned from so far away” so the minute we heard that verse, we knew it was the song for us.

Rascal Flatts – Bless the Broken Road.

Fiance and I have been through a lot in our lives.  We’re both older and have survived some really bad relationships. We’d basically given up on finding love in this lifetime.  This part makes me tear up whenever I hear it.

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

“Love Of A Lifetime” by Firehouse


With every kiss our love is like brand-new

And every star up in the sky was made for me and you

Still we both know that the road is long

But we know that we will be together because our love is strong

“True Companion” by Marc Cohn — I have two bits. 🙂


“… and then I’ll take you home, and with wild abandon

make love to you just like a true companion”


“When the years have done irreparable harm

I can see us walking slowly arm in arm

Just like that couple on the corner do

Girl, I will always be in love with you”

Passenger Seat- Death Cab for Cutie. It took us FOREVER to come up with a first dance song and then I played this and it’s a song we both remember listening to early in our relationship…

“When you feel embarrassed then I’ll be your pride
When you need directions then I’ll be the guide
For all time
For all time”

“She’s Everything” by Brad Paisley

She’s the voice I love to hear
Someday when I’m ninety
She’s that wooden rocking chair
I want rocking right beside me
Everyday that passes
I only love her more
Yeah, she’s the one
That I’d lay down my own life for

<3 <3 <3

“So much craziness surrounding me

So much going on, it gets hard to breathe

When all my faith has gone, you bring it back to me

You make it real for me.”


“I guess there’s so much more I have to learn

But if you’re here with me, I know which way to turn”


You make it real – James Morrison

Mine would have to be the chorus.  It’s “Easy to Love You” by Theory of a Deadman.

It’s easy to love you
So easy to love you
You know it’s true
The best part of being with you,
To know you’re with me
It’s not so hard to say
It’s easy to love you

“Real Love” by John Lennon but we’re dancing to the cover by Regina Spektor:

From this moment on i know
Exactly where my life will go
Seems that all i really was doing
Was waiting for love

Don’t need to be afraid
No need to be afraid

It’s real love
It’s real, yes it’s real love
It’s real

Thought i’d been in love before,
But in my heart i wanted more
Seems like all i really was doing
Was waiting for you

… Our rings are going to have the words “Real Love” on the inside as a reminder.
