  1. I’m not sure, good question. I know though everytime someone uses it I can’t help but roll my eyes. C’mon people…get original. I’m thinking of Walking After You by the Foo Fighters but then that is kind of about stalking 😀

  2. Thanks…who knows what direction I will go. I also like the song “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” from the movie Closer although that might be a little too dark. Eh I got time 🙂 Your list definitely makes you think.

  3. Hi A.W.!
    Here’s the info you requested — “The Wedding Song (There Is Love)” by Paul Stookey
    He is now to be among you, at the calling of your heart
    Rest assured this troubador is acting on his part
    The union of your spirits here, has caused him to remain
    For whenever two or more of you are gathered in his name
    There is love, there is love
    Well a man shall leave his mother, and a woman leave her home
    They shall travel on to where the two shall be as one
    As it was in the beginning, is now until the end
    Woman draws her life from man and gives it back again
    There is love, there is love
    Well then what’s to be the meaning of becoming man and wife
    Is it love that brings you here or love that brings you life
    Well if loving is the answer, then who’s the giving for
    Do you believe in something that you’ve never seen before
    Oh there’s love, there is love
    Hum to 3rd verse
    Oh the marraige of your spirits here has caused Him to remain
    For whenever two or more of you are gathered in His name
    There is love, there is love

    It is quite a beautiful song and the original Stookey version is captivating and touching.
