Sound Bite Sunday

I feel like a lot of my songs lately have been a little, let's say, gloomy. So, with it being just after Thanksgiving and all, I thought I would share a song that to me, is a little more upbeat. Well, not technically upbeat, but the lyrics are happier.
 
Anyway... I first heard this song round about my freshman year of college. I liked it. I knew the words. I kinda forgot about it for years though. Until I met Puff. Somehow I stumbled across it in the year leading up to our engagement and realized it was the song I was destined to walk down the aisle to. (Of course I couldn't do something traditional! Duh! How boring and totally NOT me!) Then in the spring during our engagement, I bought the new Lifehouse album that had a special second disc. When I was listening to it, there was a live version of this song and it was just destined to be. I almost teared up listening to it on the car ride home that night! 
 
When you listen to the song, there is a perfect tempo change that was the exact moment that I timed for me to walk down the aisle. Oh so perfect! I loved how it worked out! I even had to print the lyrics of the song in our wedding programs. That way, everyone who didn't know the song (which was probably all but like 3 people... my husband didn't even know it!) could read the lyrics and understand the beauty in it. I will now always hold this song close to my heart. It's beautiful. It's amazing. And it reminds me of the love of my life.
 
Everything by Lifehouse
 
Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...you're everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything,everything
You're all I want your all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want you're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.

And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
