    So for the longest time my fiance and I thought we already had our song choice, "this years love" by David Gray
    DAVID GRAY LYRICS - This Years Love

    After really sitting down and looking over the lyrics with a girlfriend of mine, I feel like maybe it isnt the right choice? They talk about one more chance and lies and cutting like a knife, lol. I asked my dj and he said the decision is our but he did say that alot of couples he has worked with used this as "thier song"
    The song literally gives me chills, and my fiance well he probably has no clue what the lyrics are but thinks its beautiful, its in the movie "the girl next door"
    opinions please??

    He asked, I said YES!!! 1 <3 21 <3 04 - 5 <3 13 <3 08

      I walked down the aisle to this and my sister was giving me a hard time about my choice for the same reason - the lyrics. I told her to shut up and she could pick what she wanted for her own wedding and I used it anyways lol. I picked it for the feeling of the song, not the lyrics. If you want it I say go for it!

        My ex-boyfriend played guitar and sang very well. At his best friend's wedding, they asked him to play/sing this song when the bride walked in. The set up at the wedding was that the bride walked down a long stairway to make her entrance. He made one small change to the lyrics (sang "is gonna last" instead of "had better last"). It was amazing. Everyone raved about how amazing it was. It was really powerful and beautiful. If I didn't associate the song with my ex, I would consider this song.

          I LOVE this song! If you didn't use any song because of a few lyrics... there wouldn't really be any songs left! I just got goosebumps listening to it and it just makes me want to close my eyes and slow dance. :)

            I thought of using that song but i don't like some of the lyrics either. I am freaky about it having the right lyrics and "fit us". I am thinking of using Better by Tom Baxter. Beautiful Lyrics - I'm still torn.

              With this song in particular it was never much about the lyrics, more that the song every time without fail gives me goosebumps. Im saying screw it and going with the song, lol. Thanks for the help girls.

                  I wasn't sure what I was going to use as our first dance song until a coworker had me listen to Someone Like You by Van Morrison. My fiance loves it too, and it just seems classic to me... not one that i am going to get sick of hearing after awhile. ya know?
