Here’s yet another terrific suggestion for the groom’s dance with his mother, which is invariably the most problematic song to find in the whole reception. The choices are usually pretty slim, but this one truly fits the bill. [By the way, I’ve never really been a “Country Music” fan, so just assume that any “Country” song I suggest has come directly from a client.] The one is called “My Wish” by the Rascal Flatts, and the lyrics are in the same vein as “I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack, another “Country” song that you can find an earlier blog post about. The song is very simple, but the lyrics truly have a perfect message.
I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
and each road leads you where you want to go
And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walking ’til you find the window
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything…
My wish for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small. You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to, I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too. Yeah, this is my wish,
I think this one has to at least be a strong contender as one, or both, of the parent dances.
Let me know what you think.
