Pray it won’t fade away

4. “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin

We absolutely love these lines:

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
‘Til your kiss helped me name it
Now I’m no longer doubtful, of what I’m living for
And if I make you happy I don’t need to do more
‘Cause you make me feel like a natural woman

You’re the one that gives your all
You’re the one that always calls
When I need you everything stops
Finally, you put my love on top

Bring it one more time, one more time

The most perfect love song lyrics:

And I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come

Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me

And I’ll never stop loving you
And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

8. “Because You Loved Me” by Céline Dion

The best lines from this amazing love song:

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies, you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

9. “When You Kiss Me” by Shania Twain

Lyrics we love:

I can see you with me when I’m older
All my lonely nights are finally over
You took the weight of the world off my shoulders, the world just goes away
I can see the two of us together
I know I’m gonna be with you forever
Love couldn’t be any better, the world just goes away

Oh, when you kiss me
I know you miss me
And when you’re with me
The world just goes away
The way you hold me, the way you kiss me
The way you show me, I know you miss me
That you adore me
Oh, when you kiss me

10. “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat

Our favorite lines:

The rain is falling on my windowpane
But we are hiding in a safer place
Under covers, staying dry and warm
You give me feelings that I adore
They start in my toes, make me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes, I always know
That you make me smile, please stay for a while now
Just take your time, wherever you go
