Lyrics

You're the One, Wedding Song

Written By: Becca Richter

Let’s go back to the start
When I talked to you for the first time.
I don’t know how, don’t know why
But I swear that I knew
You’re the one.

When I look into your heart, all I see is your sincerity
And the dwelling of our song within
When I look into your soul, I see a man of dignity
and the willingness to fight forever…
You’re the one.

I never thought there was anyone out there
For me till there was you.
I never thought there was hope in the world
Until you came along.

Won’t you take my hand
since you already stolen my heart
Now let’s walk through this life
as if we were one
You’re the one.
