When we first started dating, Ccelli had to go to Florida for a few months on business. It was bad timing to the say the least but gave us an opportunity to miss one another and grow as friends while communicating long distance. Since we were head over heels from the day we met, we talked and texted often while Ccelli was gone. One day Ccelli called and said he just heard a song, “Stay with You” by John Legend. He told me to run out and buy the CD so I could listen to it immediately. This was back in the day when people still bought CDs. I ran to my car, drove as quickly as I could to Best Buy, and bought the CD “Get Lifted”. When I got back to my car, I popped it in the CD player and played it loud. I sobbed as I listened to it. Ccelli was right. The song was perfect and it matched how we were feeling at the time which was blissfully in love. Now when we listen to it, we are reminded of the foundation in which we built our relationship. The song always makes us happy and expresses our feelings towards one another in a beautiful way. It was the obvious choice for our first dance.

Here are the lyrics:

“Stay With You”

We’ve been together for a while now
We’re growing stronger everyday now
It feels so good and there’s no doubt
I will stay with you as each morning brings sunrise
And the flowers bloom in springtime
On my love you can rely
And I’ll stay with youOh I’ll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I’ll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we’ll be alright
I will stay with you

Though relationships can get old
They have the tendency to grow cold
We have something like a miracle
Yeah, and I’ll stay with you

Oh I’ll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I’ll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we’ll be alright
I will stay with you

And there will be heartaches and pains, yes it will
But through it all, we will remain
In this life, we all know
Friends may come, and they may go
Through the years I know
I will stay
And in the end I know that we’ll find
Love so beautiful and divine
We’ll be lovers for a lifetime, yeah
And I’ll stay with you
I will stay with you

Oh I’ll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I’ll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we’ll be alright
I will stay with you
Everything will be fine
And I will stay with you
Through the end of time
I will stay with you
