January Wedding

By: The Avett Brother

She keeps it simple
And I am thankful for her kind of lovin’
‘Cause it’s simple

No longer do we wonder if we’re together
We’re way past that
And I’ve already asked her
So in January we’re gettin’ married

She’s talkin’ to me with her voice
Down so low I barely hear her
But I know what she’s sayin’
I understand because my heart and hers are the same
And in January we’re gettin’ married

And I was sick with heartache
And she was sick like Audrey Hepburn when I met her
But we would both surrender
True love is not the kind of thing you should turn down
Don’t ever turn it down

I hope that I don’t sound to insane when I say
There is darkness all around us
I don’t feel weak but I do need sometimes for her to protect me
And reconnect me to the beauty that I’m missin’
And in January we’re gettin’ married

No longer does it matter what circumstances we were born in
She knows which birds are singin’
And the names of the trees where they’re performin’ in the mornin
And in January we’re gettin’ married
Come January let’s get married

Sung by The Avett Brothers on their Album I And Love And You

Sometimes we listen to music but never hear the words. As I have trouble meditating, I sometimes just sit in the quiet and listen to songs. This is a particularly fantastic album to just sit and listen to. Upon really hearing a song you start to see the poem inside the notes. This one I though was very fitting for our blog, and beautiful to read. Who wouldn’t want their fiancee to say this! Enjoy, and if you have a spare second, but this album and just listen.
