As is clearly shown by my blog title, I love song lyrics. Moments Pass Slow is a line of the chorus of our song: My Wish by Rascal Flatts. We danced to this song as our first dance as husband and wife. It has been our song since about a month into dating. We had just had dinner with my family for my sister’s birthday and we were driving toward the highway to our two separate homes in our two separate cars when my cell phone rang and it was Greg. He told me to pull over into the gas station before getting on the highway. When we got there he jumped out of his car and ran over to mine to hand me a CD – the (then) new Rascal Flatts CD, Me and My Gang. He said “song number 5, just listen to it, it’s amazing.” And I did, and I giggled and smiled and maybe got a little weepy – but since then it’s been our song. (cheeeeeesey!)
My Wish – Rascal Flatts
if it’s cold outside,
show the world the warmth of your smile
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
and you help somebody every chance you get,
while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
I would never change what song we had our first dance to, but some other songs that have come out recently would be amazing first dance songs for some other happy and in love bride and groom. Here are some of my favorite lyrics from two of my new favorite songs:
Marry Me – Train
Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do
Together can never be close enough for me
To feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love
And you’re beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way
Today and every day
Without You – Keith Urban
I’ve loved you since the very first day
When I caught you looking my way
A smile and just knew it.
And people that I barely knew, love me ‘cos I’m part of you
Man I start to figure
How two souls can be, miles from one another
But still you and me, have somehow found each other.
Without you I’d survive, but I’d have to have a notion
That I could live this life, just going through the motions
This life, this love that you and I have been building up so high
It’s never gonna touch the sky, without you.
What was your first dance song with your husband? Or what is your dream song if you haven’t had your wedding yet?
