Songs on Repeat

I have a really annoying habit of playing songs that speak to me over and over and over and over and over again until my heart has them memorized. When I was in high school and the movie Titanic came out, it was the song "My Heart Will Go On" (don't judge me--you know you loved that song! Of course I, like you, can no longer stand it because I played it to death). When we got married it was "At Last" by Netta James. When we lost April Baby, it was "Held" by Natalie Grant. Yesterday, after a great weekend with my sweetie, it was this:
Remember when
I was young and so were you
Time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when

Remember when
We vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made a start, and it was hard
We lived and learned, life through curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when
Old ones died, new were born
Life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
We broke each other's hearts
Remember when

Remember when
The sound of little feet was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when

We bought this Alan Jackson cd on our honeymoon because of this song. We had no idea then how much we would love each other now. I hope I'll discover this song again in a few years and have it on repeat...and another few years after that....and another few years after that.
