www.darladay.net – Wedding Song

I stumbled upon to this song when my one of my pet-sister asked me to suggest a wedding song for a friend of hers.
This song, lyrics and information are copied straight from YouTube, here.
The start of the song is pretty darn good. It’s a sweet love song.
This song totally reminds me of “Love of My Life” from Jim Brickman. I will post this song after this post.

I prayed to my God for a heart to keep
He gave me the one, He knew my needs
Over and over this love is sweet
I recognize the joy that makes our love complete
God gave you to me

I love you, the love of my life
I need you, our love is right
I’ve found the one that my soul loves
No other love means so much

I prayed to my God for a heart to keep
He gave me the one, He knew my needs
Over and over this love is sweet
I recognize the joy that makes our love complete
God gave you to me

You’re the one I prayed for long ago
Fearless trust I never thought I’d know
I’ve found the answer to my dreams
My eyes were opened to love’s mystery

I prayed to my God for a heart to keep
He gave me the one, He knew my needs
Over and over this love is sweet
I recognize the joy that makes our love complete
God gave you to me

The love of my life…

I love you, the love of my life
I need you, our love is right
I’ve found the one that my soul loves
No other heart gives so much
God gave you to me

You’re the one I love
You are the love of my life

    I play songs for weddings, have a singer accompanying me. Anyone know where I can get the music sheet – melody and chords as I play keyboard? I actually prefer to play from the guitar music sheets as long as they have both notes and chords. Thanks much. Sharon

    • Mads said,

      Hej Esther, så fandt jeg dig her midt i en tråd på jagt efter de samme akkorder. Pyt, hvis du ikke har kunnet finde dem og vi begge er havnet her, så er det nok hurtigere, at jeg lige lytter dem af. Jeg slår på tråden i aften, når jeg har øvet med Birgit.

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing relating to this.
