I was worried about ours, but seeing some of the postings here, I don't feel as bad. Granted we never had a 1st dance at a reception because we eloped.
But when we got home from the courthouse, hubby put this song on and we danced in the living room together. Just us.
Don't Fade Away by Dead can Dance
I think the lyrics work, especially for us.
Don't fade away, my brown-eyed girl
Come walk with me, i'll fill your heart with joy
And we'll dance through our isolation.
Seeking solace in the wisdom we bestow
Turning thoughts to the here and ever after
Consuming fears in our fiery halos
Say what you mean, mean what you say
I've heard that innocence has led us all astray
But don't let them make you and break you
The world is filled with their broken empty dreams
Silence is their only virtue
Locked away inside their silent screams
But for now, let us dance away this starry night
Filled with the glow of fiery stars
And with the dawn our sun will rise
Bringing a symphony of bird cries
Don't bring me down now, let me stay here for awhile
You know life's too short, let me bathe here in your smile
I'm transcending the fall from the garden
We just hit 9 years in December. We're planning a big anniversary party on year 13 (Hey! It's lucky!)
