You Look Perfect Tonight

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: PG (title of song must start with the letter P or G)

Well, what a way for Caramel to be starting 2021. Jack and I are excited about our wedding plans (still using the word plans loosely) but we are talking about all the possibilities and at some point we need to start making decisions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is exciting!

Can I be honest you? The possibility of having a wedding with just a handful of close relatives is very appealing! We could have other guests join in via zoom apparently. That to me would be the ideal wedding! However, I am not going to pressure Jack. At the end of the day, I respect his decisions. I do. I really do. He has a lovely way of making decisions and making other people feel part of our lives. I am more of the recluse, more private about our relationship. That is because of the past. I love that Jack wants to shout about our romance from the rooftops. But social distancing restrictions may mean that Jack and I will both be able to have the kind of wedding that would suit us. It may well be a small wedding, with an absurd amount of people (many of whom I have never even met) tuning in to see our wedding vows. It is a funny old situation to be in!

So, forgive, me but I am feeling terribly romantic these days! So I will choose a song that begins with the letter “P” – “Perfect” from Ed Sheeran! So lovely!

I found a love for me
Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow
Your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
When you said you looked a mess
I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it,
Darling, you look perfect tonight

Well, I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
I found a love to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own

We are still kids but we’re so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I’ll be your man
I see my future in your eyes

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
When I saw you in that dress
Looking so beautiful
I don’t deserve this
Darling, you look perfect tonight

No, no, no

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark
With you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass
Listening to our favourite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect
I don’t deserve this
You look perfect tonight

Lyrics by: Ed Sheeran

  1. Congratulations on your engagement, Mel! So excited for you and this song is so “PERFECT” for the prompt and your life right now. I heard this on the radio yesterday on my way back from the post office. My favorite Ed Sheeran song. 🙂
