This Is Our Song

In the post this week I Now Pronounce You: Angry & Absent we talked about the importance of open communication, vulnerability, & how remembering the love you had at the beginning of your marriage can be used as a tool to keep you going & keep you choosing your partner forever.

I received many comments from you guys, THANK YOU! & in those comments, you shared the songs that you share with your spouse or that you danced to at your wedding. So this week playlist is filled with all the wedding songs that bring hope to you during those struggles.

I hope sometime in the near future you dim the lights & dance to one or all of these romantic songs. Mute the chaos & remind each other of the love you share. Feed those flames, friends.

This week’s playlist can be listened to in its entirety HERE & is titled This Is Your Song.

Ever found the way to say

Anyway, the thing is,
What I really mean,
Yours are the sweetest eyes
I’ve ever seen

And I’ll never stop loving you

All I know is, darling, I was made for loving you

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do
I do it for you

7. She is Love – Parachute

She is love,
And she is all I need.

8. I Knew I Loved You– Savage Garden

In your eyes, I see
The missing pieces I’m searching for
I think I’ve found my way home

9. Swim – Jack Mannequin

You gotta swim
For nights that won’t end
Swim for your family
Your lovers your sisters
Your brothers your friends
You gotta swim

10. You & I – Eddie Rabbit & Crystal Gayle

I remember our first embrace
That smile that was on your face
The promises that we made
And now, your love is my reward
And I love you even more
Than I ever did before

I do give my life to you
Today and every day

Whatever comes our way

The world has somehow shifted
All at once, everything looks different
Now that I see you

14. Bag of Bones – Here Come the Mummiesimg_9943

15. It All Started With a Beer – Frankie Ballard

There’s been highs and lows, fast lane freeways and bumpy roads
Cursed the devil and prayed to heaven, lost it all and we rolled some sevens
Been some smiles then there’s been tears, been more good than bad years

16. Could I Have This Dance – Anne Murray

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner every night?
When we’re together it feels so right

17. Next to Heaven – Aaron Watson

Next to heaven lies my fate, my best friend, and my soul mate
God knows this kind of love only comes from up above
You’re the answer to my prayers, nothing else compares
I’m next to heaven when I am next to you

18. Strawberry Wine– Deana Carter

Year after year I come back to this place
Just to remember the taste
Of strawberry wine and seventeen

19. Your Love Amazes Me – John Berry

Don’t you ever doubt this love of mine
You’re the only one for me
You give me hope
You give me reason
You give me something to believe in
Forever faithfully
Your love amazes me

20. Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not – Thompson Square

Look at all the love that we got
It ain’t never gonna stop
Are you gonna kiss me or not?

21. My Best Friend – Tim McGrawimg_9947

22. Your Everything – Keith Urban

I want to be the wind that fills your sails
And be the hand that lifts your veil
And be the moon that moves your tide
The sun coming up in your eyes
Be the wheel that never rusts
And be the spark that lights you up
All that you’ve been dreaming of and more, so much more
I want to be your everything

23.  I Want Crazy – Hunter Hayes

I don’t want “good” and I don’t want “good enough”
I want “can’t sleep, can’t breathe without your love”
Front porch and one more kiss, it doesn’t make sense to anybody else
Who cares if you’re all I think about,
I’ve searched the world and I know now,
It ain’t right if you ain’t lost your mind
Yeah, I don’t want easy, I want crazy

24. If I Could Bottle This Up – Paul Overstreet

If I could take you kiss
And twist it into liquid form
Melt it with the way I felt
Here in your arms
Sprinkle in a twinkle or two
From your eyes
A dab of this fabulous feeling inside
I could really rake in the bucks
If I could bottle this up

25.  You’re Still the One – Shania Twainimg_9944

It truly was so fun hearing from you all & listening to so many songs I had never heard before. Thanks for sharing! Each of our partnerships has their own unique flair, but the love shared is something we can universally understand & appreciate. May we feel that love deeply as we keep moving forward.
