So many things to tell her
But how to make her see
The truth about my past, impossible
She’d turn away from me

He’s holding back, he’s hiding
But what, I can’t decide
Why won’t he be the king I know he is?
The king I see inside?

Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things

Can you feel the love tonight?
You needn’t look too far
Stealing through the night’s uncertainties
Love is where they are

Number Two: Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls (From ‘City of Angels’)

City of Angels starring Meg Ryan and Nicholas Cage was such a deeply romantic and loving movie about an angel who wanted to become mortal because he was in love with a woman. The lyrics talk about a love like no other, a desperate love that cannot be quashed by anything- such a wonderful wedding song. Here are some of the lyrics by The Goo Goo Dolls:

And I’d give up forever to touch you
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t wanna go home right now
And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t wanna miss you tonight
And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

Number Three: In Your Eyes By Peter Gabriel (From ‘Say Anything’)

This romantic movie about a guy who cannot do anything to turn his feelings off for the girl he loves is perfect for a wedding song. It’s about seeing everything you want in the eyes of your soul mate, and it’s very meaningful and pretty. Here are some of the lyrics by Peter Gabriel:

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Number Four: Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross (From ‘Endless Love’)

My love,
There’s only you in my life
The only thing that’s bright
My first love,
You’re every breath that I take
You’re every step I make
And I
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do…
And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love
Two hearts,
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun

What a perfect, lovely song that can be even played as a romantic Valentine’s gift or as a solute for the start of a new life together!

Number Five: Up Where We Belong by Joe Cocker (From An Officer and A Gentleman)

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it’s real, I keep it alive
The road is long
There are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world below
Up where the clear winds blow

Number Six: Not Of This Earth By Robbie Williams (From Bridget Jones’ Diary)

Not of This Earth focuses around a love so strong that it can’t even be earthly. It shows how much a couple is in love and how much they mean to one another. This is an excellent wedding song for a new couple to dance to, and base a theme around. Some of the lyrics by Robbie Williams are the following:

Not of this Earth
you’ve changed places with the Sun
I know that you’re the one
I love what we’ve become

Not of this earth
I wear you like a shroud
I know I make you proud
You done your crying now

The lyrics focus on the other person being the center of the Earth- there is so much meaning and beauty in this song.

Hopefully a couple of these songs will inspire some ideas if you are looking for the perfect wedding song, or a romantic song for a special occasion.
