Forever With You

SONG LYRICS

Play the song in my heart, take me back to the start
Where it all began, in a church you took my hand
As we danced through the night, deep into the morning light
It was then I knew my forever was with you

I wanna dance with you till my days are through
Spend all of my nights wrapped in your arms holding me tight
And every step you take, by your side I’ll stay
’cause all it took was a dance to know forever with you

From that night it took a while to walk down the aisle
Nervous as can be, until I saw you look at me
With those crystal eyes so blue, I wondered what did I do
Always mine you’ll be and that you’d choose forever with me

Now I’ll dance with you till my days are through
Spend all of my nights wrapped in your arms holding me tight
And every step you take, by your side I’ll stay
’cause all it took was a dance to know forever with you

My red faded to gray
And our legs don’t move the same
So I’ll hold your hand and dance this way

Oh, I danced with you until your days were through
I spent all of my nights wrapped in your arms, you held me tight
With every step I take to be with you, I can’t wait
Oh to have one more dance with you, my darling
Oh love, I’ll be waiting
To spend forever with you

DESCRIPTION
As a songwriter, inspiration comes from everywhere. But for me, family has consistently been one of the main inspirations in my writing. Throughout my childhood and through my early teen years I was fortunate to know my great-grandparents. They lived in Idaho so we didn't see them often, but we always made sure to visit them as often as we could. When I was 16-years-old, we made a stop to visit with my darling great-grandma, Lila. My great-grandpa had passed a few years prior, so it was just her there. While visiting with her, we asked her if she would tell us the story of how they met (which we got on video!). She told this darling story of how they met at a church dance and he asked her to dance with him. At the end of her story, in the cutest little voice, she said, "All it took was a dance to know that I liked him and I wanted to dance with him the rest of my life." As she said that my heart completely melted. As a fresh songwriter, I knew I wanted honor them and write a song about their love story someday. My great-grandma Lila had red hair, the same color as mine. So as I went to write this song, I felt impressed to write the song in her perspective. During the writing process I felt them close and as I finished the song I immediately was overcome with emotion and a feeling that they approved of their song. It was so sacred and so special! So "Forever With You" is their story, in a song <3 I love my great-grandparents and am so thankful to have known them. I'm thankful for their example of eternal love that helped me when I was searching for my eternal companion. Most importantly, I'm so thankful family is forever. <3 Thank you for your consideration.
