Stand beside it, we can’t hide the way it makes us glow It’s no good unless it grows, feel this burning, love of mine Deep inside the ever-spinning, tell me does it feel It’s no good unless it’s real, hill sides burning Wild-eyed turning til we’re running from it
I’d take care of you if you’d ask me to In a year or two
You say swimming in the lake we’ll come across a snake It is real and then it’s fake, feel its heartbeat Feel what you heat, far so fast it feels too late
I’ll take care of you Take care of you That’s true
If you asked me when we first got engaged what song we would dance to for the first time as a married couple it would have been Hysteric by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with no questions asked. As time went on I listened to this song by Beach House and knew it was the perfect fit. I wasn’t sure at the time why I was so drawn to it but I knew it felt right. I’m more able to put into words now the way this song makes me feel and even more assured that it was the right choice. This song is a perfect match for our love story. Alex and I started dating when we were very young and there was always this sense of longing. Longing to be together, to be older, for the timing to be better, a longing for the future… our forever. Now that we’re married the end of this song and the way it fades out with a repetitive verse mirrors our eternal commitment to each other. In our vows we said “I will” not “I do”. I like that. I like the idea that our relationship is something that we will wake up every day and continually work on, not a promise we made once and can forget about.
