Find Love Song Lyrics That Resonate
With Your Own Sweet Love

A wedding singer once told me she had trouble finding good contemporary love songs for weddings, that "I love you truly, truly, dear" is such a relic from the past it just won't do. She said that few modern song writers capture the true essence and romance of love. When listening to pop radio stations, I tend to agree with her.

But there are some wonderful love song quotes. Elton John and Andrew Lloyd Webber create very different melodies, but both capture passion and true love in their love song lyrics.

For the millions of hues of love there are millions of love song quote possibilities. Here are a few, in no special order.


"Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. 
Let's do it, let's fall in love."
Cole Porter

Raoul & Christine:
Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime...
say the word and I will follow you...
Share each day with me, each night, each morning...
Andrew Lloyd Webber "Phantom of the Opera", "All I Ask of You"

A moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this
Some people search forever for that one special kiss
Oh I can't believe it's happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this
Kelly Clarkson "A Moment Like This"

This has to be one of the most beautiful love song quotes of all time, from one of our most beautiful states:

U-a, si-la
Pa-a ia me o-e
Ko a-lo-ha ma-ka-mea e i-po
Ka-'u ia e le-i a-e ne-i la

Now that we are one
Clouds won't hide the sun
Blue skies of Hawaii smile
On this, our wedding day
I do love you with all my heart
Hawaiian Wedding Song

Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
Frank Sinatra, "Fly Me to the Moon"

Chances are you believe the stars that fill the skies are in my eyes
Guess you feel you'll always be the one and only one for me
And if you think you could
Well, chances are your chances are awfully good
The chances are your chances are . . . awfully good
Johnny Mathis, "Chances Are"

I just called to say I love you;
I just called to say how much I care;
I just called to say I love you,
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
No April rain, no flowers' bloom,
No wedding Saturday within the month of June.
But what it is is something true
Made up of these three words that I must say to you
Stevie Wonder, "I Just Called to Say I Love You"

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
Sting, "Fields of Gold"

There's a calm surrender
To the rush of day
When the heat of the rolling world
Can be turned away
An enchanted moment
And it sees me through
It's enough for this restless warrior
Just to be with you
Elton John, "Can You Feel the Love Tonight"

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love
John Lennon, "Grow Old with Me"

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her
The Beatles "And I Love Her"

Well, I know it's kind of late,
I hope I didn't wake you.
But what I got to say can't wait;
I know you'd understand.
Every time I tried to tell you
The words just came out wrong,
So I'll have to say I love you in a song.
Jim Croce, "I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song"

Tonight I celebrate my love for you (ooh)
And that midnight song is gonna come shining through
Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to get close to you
Tonight I celebrate my love for you
Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, "Tonight I Celebrate My Love for You"

We're in this love together.
We got the kind that lasts forever.
We're in this love together
And like berries on the vine,
It gets sweeter all the time.
Its like a rainy night in candlelight
And, ooh it's so romantic.
We got the whole thing working out so right
And it's just the way we planned it.
Al Jarreau, "We're In This Love Together"

Say you, say me; say it for always
That's the way it should be
Say you, say me; say it together
Lionel Richie, "Say You, Say Me"

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the night and the empty skies my love
To the night and the empty skies
Celine Dion, "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
The Carpenters, "Close to You"

Broadway has always been a great source of a love song quote or two. This one was made famous by Julie Andrews on Broadway, and later by Audrey Hepburn in the movie version.

I could have danced all night!
I could have danced all night!
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings
And done a thousand things I've never done before.
I'll never know What made it so exciting;
Why all at once My heart took flight. I only know when he
Began to dance with me I could have danced,
danced, danced all night!

"I Could Have Danced All Night", sung by Eliza in "My Fair Lady"
