lucky.

I'm in love with this song by Jason Mraz ft. Colbie Caillat. Reading this post from The Wedding Cabaret reminded me to post about it.


Here are the lyrics.

Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Oooohhhhoohhhhohhooohhooohhooohoooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music, feel the air
I'll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

This song is absolutely perfect for our wedding. I would choose it as our first dance song, except there is one problem. My cousin just used it as his first dance song, and their wedding was only like 2 weeks ago. Not a big deal to most people, but we will be having a ton of the same guests. And I feel weird having the same first dance song as my cousin. I guess we'll use it in our slideshow instead. That is, if we have a slideshow. Any other ideas for a first dance song?

This would be a very cute song to include in a slideshow. For a first dance song, there are so many! You could do "Better Together", Sade's "By Your Side", Mariah Carey & Luther Vandros "Endless Love"... I could go on and on! :)
