Dinner will be over and hopefully everyone is relaxed and ready to hit the dance floor. But first it's our turn :-)
We have never really had an 'our' song so coming up with something for our first dance was difficult at first, we sat down with a bottle of wine and our ipods out trying to find something that we both liked and that had some meaning to us. This is what we came up with!
Christy Moore - The Voyage
I am a sailor, you're my first mate
We signed on together, we coupled our fate
Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail
For the hearts treasure, together we set sail
With no maps to guide us we steered our own course
Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force
Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope
Working together we learned how to cope
Life is an ocean and love is a boat
In troubled water that keeps us afloat
When we started the voyage, there was just me and you
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew
Together we're in this relationship
We built it with care to last the whole trip
Our true destination's not marked on any charts
We're navigating to the shores of the heart
When we first heard the lyrics we just fell in love with song, we have been on a very long journey to get to where we are today with lots of ups and downs but we have and always will be there for each other.
We think this song just sums up our lives together and we are both looking forward to our future as Mr and Mrs Spillane!!
