you know you’re in love when . . .

i’m sitting at my computer, listening to a few of my favorite romantic country songs, and all i’m doing is picturing me and joe. i’ve always loved “one boy, one girl” by colin raye, and i can see our first date, our wedding day and the birth of our children when i listen to it. it’s pretty incredible, probably because i’m realizing that reality isn’t too far off. it’s amazing when you find someone you know you’re meant to be with who does this to you, who you can’t picture your life without, and who you can’t wait to see every day. and now i have probably turned you all off of my blog with all this sappiness. hehe. 🙂

one boy, one girl
(mark alan springer/shaye smith)

he finally gave in to his friend’s girlfriend
when she said, “there’s someone you should meet”
at a crowded restaurant way cross town
he waited impatiently
when she walked in their eyes met
and they both stared
and right there and then everyone else disappeared but

one boy, one girl, two hearts beating wildly
to put it mildly it was love at first sight
he smiled, she smiled, and they knew right away
this was the day they’d waited for all their lives
and for a moment the whole world revolved
around one boy and one girl

in no time at all they were standing there
in the front of a little church
in front of their friends and family
repeating those sacred words
preacher said, “son kiss your bride”
and he raised her veil
like the night they met time just stood still

one boy, one girl, two hearts beating wildly
to put it mildly it was love at first sight
he smiled, she smiled, and they knew right away
this was the day they’d waited for all their lives
and for a moment the whole world revolved
around one boy and one girl

he was holding her hand when the doctor looked up and grinned
“congratulations, twins”

one boy, one girl, two hearts beating wildly
to put it mildly it was love at first sight
he smiled, she smiled, and they knew right away
this was the day they’d waited for all their lives
and for a moment the whole world revolved
around one boy and one girl

another of my favorites is “when i said i do,” which clint black sings with his wife. it’s so powerful. especially since a husband and wife sing it. it gives me goosebumps. this song is one we’ll having playing at our reception.

when i said i do (clint black)

these times are troubled and these times are good
and they’re always gonna be, they rise and they fall
we take ’em all the way that we should
together you and me forsaking them all
deep in the night and by the light of day
it always looks the same, true love always does
and here by your side, or a million miles away
nothin’s ever gonna change the way that i feel,
the way it is, is the way that it was

when i said i do, i meant that i will ’til the end of all time
be faithful and true, devoted to you
that’s what i had in mind when i said i do

well this old world keeps changin’, and the world stays the same
for all who came before, and it goes hand and hand
only you and i can undo all that we became
that makes us so much more, than a woman and a man
and after everything that comes and goes around
has only passed us by, here alone in our dreams
i know there’s a lonely heart in every lost and found
but forever you and i will be the ones
who found out what forever means

when i said i do, i meant that i will ’til the end of all time
be faithful and true, devoted to you
that’s what i had in mind when i said i do
truer than true, you know that I’ll always be there for you
that’s what i had in mind, that’s what i had in mind,
when i said i do
