30 Day Song Challenge: A Song That Reminds Me Of An Certain Event



DAY 7 –  A Song That Reminds Me Of A Certain Event


One of the greatest days of my life was my wedding day. And for our special day, I was allowed to prepare the song list for our DJ. Needless to say, there were some ground rules (if he played “Cotton Eyed Joe” he was fired on the spot!) and I gave him several CDs of songs that I wanted to hear mixed in with the usual list of wedding favorites. But the one that was most special to me was a song by Alison Krause. It’s a relatively unknown song featured on the soundtrack for the movie “Twister.” It’s called “Moments Like This” and I consider it to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It was the song I chose for our first dance and it will forever remind me of our wedding day and how beautiful Stephanie was that day…

“Moments Like This”
by Alison Krause & Union Station

While the dying world re-defines the reasons we strive to exist
We feign control though we’re bound to learn
the meaning of moments like this.
Cause in the peaceful hour, the quiet spell
Seduced by the promise of bliss, we soon forget that nothing’s happened yet
We’re living for moments like this

So hold me, whisper gently this is what we live for,
how we learn who we are

It defines us, ever reminding us that life never is more precious than this

From the dim light in the grayness, the aim of the soul tends to miss
When the clouds catch fire and the oceans pitch
We’re made for the moments like this

So hold me, whisper gently that there’s nothing to fear
You’ll always be near, to remind me, to stand behind me
Although life can be rough we can never give up

It’s in our power to face the storm with all its fury and madness
The flash of thunder roll behind us with a longing and sadness
The clouds will break.

Hold me. Whisper gently this is what we live for, how we learn how we are
It defines us, ever reminding us that life never is more precious than this
Hold me. Whisper gently that there’s nothing to fear,
You’ll always be near, to remind me, stand behind me
Although life can be rough we can never give up.

And these words have never seemed more appropriate than now.

I love you Stephanie
