Song Lyric Sunday ~ Marry

A big thanks goes out to Jim for hosting the SLS prompt every Sunday and especially today for using my wedding word ideas. I’m scheduling this post in advance, but by the time it goes live I should be happily celebrating my eldest daughter and her new husband‘s big day. Or maybe I will have conked out and will be asleep in my sweet hotel room already, sans kitty.

There are so many wonderful, happy songs to post for a wedding day, but I particularly enjoy this upbeat tune by one of my very favorite artists Neil Diamond. It’s just so pure and easy, which honestly is how I believe true love should feel, not dramatic and stressful and complicated like in novels and movies, but peaceful and good.

We don’t believe in breaking up
We do believe in making up
That’s all we really have to know
To make it so, it’s official

Yesterday is here and gone
Tomorrow’s where we both belong
Today’s the day to make that change
And rearrange your initials

Marry me now
Say that I do
Don’t wait around
You know I’m gonna be true
I’ll give you my life
It’s all that I got
I love you, believe it or not

Got so much celebrate
So why do we even hesitate
We’ve got the time, let’s make the date
‘Cause ain’t life great, together

Married’s not an easy thing
But look at all the joy it brings
And you and me can’t be afraid
‘Cause each day’s made to treasure

Marry me now
Say that I do
Don’t wait around
You know I’m gonna be true
I’ll give you my life
It’s all that I got
I love you, believe it or not

Marry me now
Tell me I do
Don’t wait around
You know I’m gonna be true
I’ll give you my life
It’s all that I got
I love you, believe it or not

Marry me now
Tell me I do
Don’t wait around
I’m gonna be true
I’ll give you my life
It’s all that I got
I love you

Marry me now
Marry me now
Marry me now
Marry me now
Marry me now
Tell me I do
Don’t wait around
Gonna be true
Give you my life
Ah baby I’ll give it all to you
Mm mm mm
