Sara Bareilles - I Choose You

Soundtrack of a Life #1: I Choose You

From this day forward it marks a change in my inner circle of friends. Two of them are getting married this weekend and the next. One of them just found someone who actually loves him for what he is, and what he represents as a human being. Nothing to write home about it is not that special anyways. Is just a story of a boy and a girl and that’s it.

The second one gets his ecclesiastic wedding on September the 5th, and this one is actually very very special in so many ways. Their love has been in growing ground for the better part of the last 10 or so years; She is a doctor, and a very good one at it, she has a kid already, and she swore to the heavens that he will eventually get him. But they grew apart, life torn them down, and built them up, thousand of things happened to them, and one day they met again. And this time, he swore she would be the mother of the kids.

And so it happened, after the Pope himself had to intercede (Yeah it is a very long and complicated story but sweet and filled with joy and grief) they are finally getting married by the faith that unites them. I am happy and glad and I couldn’t possibly express what I feel right this moment. It is confusing, to say the least, I am very happy for them, and I wish them the best, blessings and a happy long life together. And at the same time I look at my own life and I see all the failures and catastrophes that befell me during this year. Every single splinter, a death by a thousand tiny cuts.

But this is not about me. It is about them, my friends, and their road to the promised land of knowing they’ve found what they were (or were not) looking for.

May God above protect their love forever more.

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

I’ll unfold before you
What I’ve strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

We are not perfect
We’ll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

I choose you

I choose you
