More Today Than Yesterday

“I Love You More Today Than Yesterday” by The Spiral Staircase may be the greatest “one-hit wonder” ever written.  The opening horns are instantly recognizable and the simple lyric “I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow,” is about as simple and perfect a lyric as you’ll ever find for a First Dance. Plus, it’s a lot more fun and creative choice than yet another Van Morrison ballad.

I don’t remember what day it wasI didn’t notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come trueI’ll be spending time with you
Every day’s a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wonder
And if all my dreams come trueI’ll be spending time with you

Oh I love you more today than yesterdaybut not as much as tomorrow
Oh I love you more today than yesterdaybut darling not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow makes each springtime just a day away
Cupid we don’t need you now, be on your way
I thank the lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be trueI know you feel the same way too

Let me know what you think.
