It's so hard to find a single song that paints an accurate picture of how I think my love life will end up. So, I took the initiative to parts of multiple songs together to make a mega-love song. . I set a few rules for myself. First, I can only use no more than one snippet from any given artist. Second, it has to be a song currently in my music library. Third, I'm not going to use anything that's just too plain easy.
She's been on my mind (She's working overtime). She's got perfect reasons, says she loves to talks to Jesus. I think I believe her when she says life can be so simple if we'd all just learn to pray. Every Little Thing - Hawk Nelson

While putting this together there are some things I've noticed. It's hard to find songs about growing old with your wife, with the exception of that Adam Sandler song in the Wedding Singer. It's hard to find "secular" music that paints a picture of love between a man and woman in a wholesome way. It's hard to find "Christian" music which doesn't portray love between a man and woman without attempting to be uber-spiritual about it. Hopefully someday I'll have my own love song to write.
