“Feels Like Home” by Randy Newman

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bonnieraitt/feelslikehome.html

Something in your eyes, makes me want to lose myself,
Makes me want to lose myself, in your arms.
There’s something in your voice, makes my heart beat fast.
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life.
If you knew how lonely my life has been,
And how low I’ve felt so long.
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along,
And change my life the way you’ve done.Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I come from.
Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I belong.A window breaks down a long dark street,
And a siren wails over my head.
But I’m all right, ’cause I have you here with me.
And I can almost see through the dark there’s light.
If you knew how much this moment means to me,
And how long I’ve waited for your touch.
If you knew how happy you are making me —
I’ve never thought I’d love anyone so much.Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I come from.
Feels like home to me, feels like home to me,
Feels like I’m on my way back where I belong.
Feels like I’m on my way back where I belong. 

I love this song so much that when a dear friend asked me to help with her wedding music, I had to pick this one. I knew it would capture how she felt about her man. Falling in love in your 50’s is quite a different thing…much more calm and sure. Mary Ruth, Jim and I had attended Bonnie Raitt concerts together and I knew they loved her.

At the wedding, I got the sound system all ready and had my hand on the GO button for the exact moment in the ceremony when Mary Ruth was to lean in and whisper something loving to Jim. Then, at her signal, I was to blast Jim with this song, right?

WRONG! At that exact moment, someone handed Jim his guitar so he could serenade his lovely bride of oh, maybe 30 seconds.

It was a total surprise to Mary Ruth, and ME, and guess what song he sang her!!! You got it!

 

I Love stuff like this!!!!

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!

  1. What a fun story! I was at a wedding several years ago where the wife to be sang to her husband as part of the wedding ceremony. Everyone, including him, was so surprised. She had a beautiful voice.
