Sound Bite Sunday

This will be my last "Sound Bite Sunday" for awhile. I realize it's just become mundane filler in a blog where I'm trying to up the ante and create something interesting and fun. (So hopefully I can start joining some blog circles and places that syndicate posts and therefore get advertising offers. Ya know... and quit my day job to write about crap on a blog. Ha! Wishful thinking, right?)
 
Anyway... this song was on Bon Jovi's "come back" album my senior year of high school. The song "It's My Life" was everywhere, including a video on TRL on MTV and accompanied by a dance with my friends for car trips in my Rav4. However, there was another song on that album that just tugged at my heart. And I vowed from the first time I heard it that it would be my wedding song. It had the most perfect lyrics and over the years, I purposely didn't let myself attach that song to any particular man. Nope, that song would remain pure and innocent until Puff proposed.
 
The song immediately went on the list as the song for our first dance, and we even ended up putting some of the lyrics on our wedding cake. Very classic Gail and Puff. Or really, probably just classic me, but he gave me the OK! So, as the tentatively last "Sound Bite" I wanted to leave you with a beautiful and meaningful song. Enjoy!
 
Thank You for Loving Me by Bon Jovi
 
It's hard for me to say the things
I want to say sometimes
There's no one here but you and me
And that broken old street light

Lock the doors
We'll leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words when I

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes when I couldn't see for
Parting my lips when I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me

I never knew I had a dream
Until that dream was you
When I look into your eyes
The sky's a different blue

Cross my heart
I wear no disguise
If I tried, you'd make believe
That you believed my lies

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes when I couldn't see
For parting my lips when I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

You pick me up when I fall down
You ring the bell before they count me out
If I was drowning you would part the sea
And risk your own life to rescue me, yeah

Lock the doors
Leave the world outside
All I've got to give to you
Are these five words when I

Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes oh, when I couldn't see
You parted my lips when I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

When I couldn't fly
Oh, you gave me wings
You parted my lips when I couldn't breathe
Thank you for loving me

Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
Oh for loving me
