  • Something – The Beatles

“Something in the way she moves,
Attracts me like no other lover.
Something in the way she woos me.
I don’t want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

Somewhere in her smile she knows,
That I don’t need no other lover.
Something in her style that shows me.
I don’t want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.”

 

  • God Only Knows – The Beach Boys

“I may not always love you,
But long as there are stars above you,
You never need to doubt it
I’ll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I’d be without you.

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me,
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me?

God only knows what I’d be without you.”

 

  • A Thousand Years – Christina Perri

“The day we met,
Frozen I held my breath
Right from the start
I knew that I’d found a home for my heart
Beats fast
Colours and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more”

 

  • At Last – Etta James

“At last, 

My love has come along.

My lonely days are over, and life is like a song. 

 

At last, 

The skies above are blue

My heart was wrapped up in clover 

The night I looked at you. 

 

I found a dream that I could speak to, 

A dream that I can call my own.

I found a thrill to press my cheek to, 

A thrill I’ve never known. 

 

You smiled, you smiled 

and then the spell was cast. 

And here we are in heaven, 

for you are mine at last.”

 

  • Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley

“Wise men said only fools rush in, 

but I can’t help falling in love with you. 

Shall I stay, would it be a sin. 

If I can’t help falling in love with you. 

 

Like a river flows, 

surely to the sea, 

darling so it goes, 

some things are meant to be. 

 

Take my hand. 

Take my whole life too. 

For I can’t help falling in love with you.”
