Sweetness and Clarification

Monday, March 23, 2009

Tony has been absolutely dying for me to hear Brad Paisley's new single. Due to Brad's great success in writing songs that are extremely relevant to our relationship, I knew I would not be disappointed and yet I did nothing to search the song out.

Exasperated Tony finally sent the link to his website so that I could listen online.

If you haven't heard it yet or aren't a fan of country, I still suggest that you atleast listen or read the lyrics.

I remember trying not to stare
the night that I first met you,
you had me mesmerized,
And three weeks weeks later,
in the front porch light,
taking 45 minutes just to kiss goodnight.
I hadn't told you then,
that I loved you then,

And now you're my whole life,
And now you're my whole world,
And I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl,
Like a river needs the sea, Stronger than its ever been,
We've come so far since that day,
And I thought I loved you then

I remember taking you back to where I first met you,
You were so surprised
There were people around, but I didn't care,
I got down on one knee right there,
and once again
I thought I loved you then,

And now you're my whole life,
And now you're my whole world,
And I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl,
Like a river needs the sea, Stronger than its ever been,
We've come so far since that day,
And I thought I loved you then

I can just see you, with a baby on the way
I can just see you, when your hair is turning gray
What I cant see is how I'm ever gonna love you more
But Ive said that before

Now your my whole life
Now your my whole world
I just cant believe the way I feel about you girl,
We'll look back someday at this moment
And ill look at you and say
And I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then


I know it wasn't written for us . . . but it may have well as been. To say that I was crying is a given. I immediately went back to read the first 3 emails that we sent to each other.

Additionally, thank you all for your sweet comments regarding my status of the nursery/husband update. I just wanted to clarify that I am fully aware and content that Baby Bless will spend the majority of his first few weeks and months in our bedroom {especially since we're a 1 1/2 story}, but the stress stems from the fact that I don't want Tony to have to spend time working on the bathroom or nursery when our first child is born. I don't want him to give up a precious moment of that newborn time because he feels that a stupid hammer needs to be in his hand.

*This is not to say that I don't want the nursery to be done, but I just want it to be known that I do have some grip of reality even though late in pregnancy lol.

I love Brad Paisley and that song is so sweet!

I understand what you mean about not wanting Tony to miss precious new born minutes. It will all work out despite how stressful things are now.

Beautiful song, beautiful sentiments.

I can relate to what you're feeling...I too want to enjoy the last few moments of "2" and savour those brand-new moments of "3", but there's always other things that can take our attention away from these precious times. It'll all work out and I'm sure you and Tony won't feel you missed out on anything. So exciting...baby Bless is almost here.

That is an amazing song! He performed it on American Idol last week (you can find it on YouTube) and it was amazing!!! I love Brad. :)

I heard that song for the first time over the weekend and made Rob sit and listen to it. It seems so perfect...What a great song!!

Mrs. J L said...

I too love Brad's songs! I feel like they were written for us as well. :)

That song is amazing, and DH pointed it out to me the other day on the radio. Too sweet.

C said...

Love that song!

Meredith said...

I still have the first email J sent to me too--it's hilarious.

What great lyrics! I haven't heard the song, but I do love Brad Paisley so I might have to take a listen when I get home!

Bluebird said...

What a sweet song. I love that you have the first few e-mails Tony sent you! So cute.

I still have the ticket stub from my first date with Jared and the card from the flowers he sent me the day after...

You have a very nice man there! It's great that he sent you a link so you can hear that song :) I would be crying too if I were you!

Brad Paisley just has a way of writing the most incredible songs. I think that he's done a fabulous job of stearing away from your typical country song. And well, this song just continues to prove that...

What a great song and what a great message! It's so sweet that your dh was on you about listening to it because of the message...

Very sweet! Thank you for sharing!

Awww, that is precious! Thanks for sharing. I have yet to hear the new song but will soon! I like Brad Paisley and I really like his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley. I'm sure you know she played Annie in Father of the Bride.

His songs to her are so sweet and moving.

Great song.

Mrs. McB said...

I also love that song. Mr. McB and I think it is perfect. Wish it had been out for our wedding. :)

That's what I get for commenting before I read all of your posts. It makes sense. I am not sure he would miss out on too much baby stuff because the little one will be sleeping, but you will need him to watch him because you will need sleep! :)
