Music Monday: This Year’s Love – David Gray

39ea333a98449ac4929a6c2a92d1c275This Year’s Love by David Gray is “our song.” Probably not your conventional, typical song for a couple, but that’s one of the many reasons why I love it. This song was the topic of conversation for our very first phone call over ten years ago. When I wanted him to kiss me for the first time? I casually had this song playing in the background (in my defense, he did tell me that hearing this song makes him feel romantic…so I went for it). Did he kiss me? Nope. That’s for another story – but we still laugh about it to this day. Let’s just say that he’s happy I didn’t give up on him after that!

Its not about how easy love is, or about how perfect it is. Its about the realities of love, how people are hurt within love, turning in circles, but continuing to love anyway. My husband is both a full-time LEO and an Army National Guard Soldier. Our life is not easy, in fact it is very hard most of the time. But, I wouldn’t change him, or our life, for anything, and we have to just take each year’s challenges as they come.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as we have:

This years love had better last,
Heaven knows it’s high time,
I’ve been waiting on my own too long
And when ya hold me like you do
It feels so right oh now
I start to forget how my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can’t go on

Turning circle’s and time again
Cut like a knife oh now
If ya love me gotta know for sure
‘Cause it takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet lies oh now
Before I open up my arms and fall
Loosing all control
Every dream inside my soul
When ya kiss me on that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This years love it better last

This years love it better last
‘Cause who’s to worry if our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don’t ya know this life goes on
Won’t ya kiss me on that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last
This years love it better last,
Woah woah woah I yeah
This years love it better last
