I have always had such a love for music. From those early years of singing in front of the mirror, to my country line dancing phase, and now to my love of contemporary Christian music, I have been all over the place.
Big 80's music, however, holds a special place in my heart. Today I thought I would share with you lines from some of my favorite songs. Not all of them are slow; some are upbeat. See if you can guess what songs they are. You can play along in your head, leave a comment, or send an email, but whatever you do, DON'T CHEAT by googling the words. However, if you do play along, you will have a chance to win a prize. (see below)
There may be some 70's and 90's songs in there as well, just to keep it interesting. If you can't figure it out, just enjoy the romance in each line and find yourself swooning on this Valentine's Day.
I'll start with an easy one:
1.) I could stay awake just to hear you breathing.
2.) If a man could be two places at one time, I'd be with you.
3.) Through the years, as the fires start to mellow, burning lines in the book of our lives; though the binding cracks, and the pages start to yellow, I'll be in love with you.
4.) I wanna make you understand-I'm talkin' about a lifetime plan.
5.) ....such complete intoxication....
6.) I wanna love you all over.
7.) ...when you can see your unborn children in her eyes.
8.) Now and then when I see her face it takes me away to that special place and if I stare too long, I'll probably break down and cry.
9.) If ever a man had it all, it would have to be me.
10.) Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow.
Now, for the good part. The Giveway.
I recently read a book that I thought was so incredibly romantic. I enjoyed it so much, and think you might, too. I will send a copy to the first person who answers all the above correctly. (remember, no cheating) And for those of you who still can't figure out how to leave a comment, just send me an email.
