Moon River ๐Ÿ™‚

Not too many lyrics… But I love them!

Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

We both have pretty challenging careers (I’m a teacher, he’s almost a doctor), so we both are off seeing our own worlds a lot of the time.  But, we have the same goals, and are best friends for life.  I love the song!

There are 3 songs that we REALLY hold dear

First one:  Thank You – Led Zeppelin

“If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you… 

When mountains crumble to the sea, there would still be you and me….


2nd Song:Praise you, Fat Boy Slim…

“We’ve come a long long way together, through the hard times and the good,

I have to celebrate you baby, I gotta praise you like I should”


3rd song:  Follow you into the dark – Death Cab for cutie… 

As we get older, and cancer runs in his family, as early as Age 50 (we are in our 40s now… renewing vows on our 20th anniversary) This one hits home, and it makes me cry..  And I think of the winnie the pooh saying “If you live forever, please let me live forever minus 1 day so I don’t have to live a day without you….  (or something like that)… but hte lyrics are…


Love of mine, someday you will die, I’ll be close behind I’ll follow you into the dark

and then the one that touches me… 

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisified

illuminating NOs on their vacancy signs

If there’s no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark


anyhow, getting teary eyed… I love this man so much, we have been through every single vow possible, I am thankful for every experience that has made us who we are today:)

Okay don’t mean to hog the post…  But really there isn’t just ONE song, after 20 years that we can relate to…

@aryastark:  We are using George Strait – I Cross My Heart for our first dance. I LOVE the whole song, but my fav part is the second verse:

You will always be the miracle
That makes my life complete
And as long as there’s still breath in me
I’ll make yours just as sweet
As we look into the future
It’s as far as we can see
So let’s make each tomorrow
Be the best that it can be

I absolutely LOVE this song ๐Ÿ™‚

Never let me go.
You have made my life complete,
And I love you so.

Well mine was in Italian, but here’s the part of the translation that I like best. (It sounds a bit awkward because it’s a translation.)

Let’s drink for the ecstatic feeling
that love arouses
Because this all-powerful eye aims straight to the heart
Let’s drink, my love, and the love among the chalices
will make the kisses warmer

And all the world is calm

The music playing on for only two”

I loved our song. Lenny Kravitz-I Belong To You:

You are the flame in my heart 
You light my way in the dark 
You are the ultimate star 

You lift me from up above 
Your unconditional love 
Takes me to paradise 

I belong to you 
And you 
You belong to me too 

You make my life complete 
You make me feel so sweet 

You make me feel so divine 
Your soul and mind are entwined 
Before you I was blind 

But since I’ve opened my eyes 
And with you there’s no disguise 
So I could open up my mind 

I always loved you from the start 
But I could not figure out 
That I had to do it everyday 

So I put away the fight 
Now I’m gonna live my life 
Giving you the most in every way

All I want is you, will you be my bride?

Take me by the hand and stand by my side

All I want is you, will you stay with me, 

Hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea. 

“All I want is you” Barry Louis Polisar (Juno soundtrack)


About a month before he proposed we were watching some random movie with a wedding scene in it and he announced that he had picked our first dance song. I totally didn’t expect that and it made me so happy. We love this song and I was so impressed with his pick. He played it for us to dance to in our new apt on moving day, Aug 1st, and at the end of the song he was down on one knee. Love this song!

Ours is the acousitc version of Foo Fighters “Everlong”

I love, love, love every second of it but my favorite parts are:

“Breathe out, so I can breathe you in”

and of course just the chorus

“If everything could ever feel this real forever,

If anything could ever be this good again.

The only thing I’ll ever ask of you

You gotta promise not to stop when I say when.”

I’m in love with Dave Grohl, thank goodness Fiance is okay with it ๐Ÿ˜‰

@jouissance:  This is our first dance song, too!

My favorite lyrics from “God Only Knows” by the Beach Boys:

“I may not always love you
But as long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
Ill make you so sure about it

God only knows what I’d be without you”

At first, we were like, “wait, what…? I may not always love you?” But then we figured out…ah, the first line is only applicable if the stars in the sky fail to be there someday – which is unlikely! Haha ๐Ÿ™‚

No Matter What – Papa Roach

“We’ll never fall, we’ll never fade
I’ll promise you forever and my soul today
No matter what until the bitter end
We’re gonna be the last ones standing”

Bring Me Sunshine – Morcambe and Wise

Bring me Sunshine, in your smile,
Bring me Laughter, all the while,
In this world where we live, there should be more happiness,
So much joy you can give, to each brand new bright tomorrow,

Make me happy, through the years,
Never bring me, any tears,
Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above,
Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love.
