1. "All My Life" by K-Ci and Jojo

Said, I promise to never fall in love with a stranger
You're all I'm thinking of, I praise the Lord above
For sending me your love, I cherish every hug
I really love you

And all my life, baby, baby, I've prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you, baby
All my life I've prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do, love me

 

2. "Marry You" by Bruno Mars

Don't say no no no no no
Just say yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
And we'll go go go go go
If you're ready, like I'm ready.

'Cause it's a beautiful night, we're looking for something dumb to do
Hey, baby, I think I wanna marry you
Is it the look in your eyes or is it this dancing juice?
Who cares baby, I think I wanna marry you

 

3. "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri

I have died every day, waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed, I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

 

4. "Just Like A Star" by Corrine Bailey Rae

I have come to understand the way it is
Is not a secret anymore
'Cause we've been through that before
From tonight I know that you're the only one
I've been confused and in the dark
Now I understand, yeah, yeah

I wonder why it is/I don't argue like this
With anyone but you/I wonder why it is
I won't let my guard down/For anyone but you
We do it all the time/Blowing out my mind

 

5. "All Of Me" by John Legend

My head's under water/But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me/Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges/All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me/I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning/Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me/And you give me all of you, oh-oh

 

6. "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran

So honey now/Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars/Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud/Maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades/And the crowds don't remember my name
When my hands don't play the strings the same way, mm/I know you will still love me the same

 

7. "From This Moment On" by Shania Twain

just swear/That I'll always be there
I give anything/And everything
And I will always care/Through weakness and strength
Happiness and sorrow/For better, for worse
I will love you/With every beat of my heart

From this moment life has begun/From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong/From this moment on

8. "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele

When the rain/Is blowing in your face
And the whole world/Is on your case
I could offer you/A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows/And the stars appear
And there is no one there/To dry your tears
I could hold you/For a million years
To make you feel my love

 

9. "Halo" by Beyonce

It's like I've been awakened/Every rule I had you break it
It's the risk that I'm taking/I ain't never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now/I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby, I can see your halo/You know you're my saving grace

 

10. "Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley

Wise men say only fools rush in/But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay/Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea/Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand, take my whole life too/For I can't help falling in love with you

 

11. "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat

Do you hear me, I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy, I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

 

12. "The Only Exception" by Paramore

And my momma swore/That she would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised/I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist, but darlin'

You are, the only exception/You are, the only exception
You are, the only exception/You are, the only exception

 

13. "Everything" by Michael Buble

You're a carousel/You're a wishing well
And you'll hang me up/When you ring my bell
You're a mystery/You're from outer space
You're every minute of my everyday

And I can't believe that I'm your man/And I get to kiss you, baby, just because I can
Whatever comes our way/We'll see it through
And you know that's what our love can do

 

14. "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)" by Stevie Wonder

Oh yeah baby, like a fool I went and stayed too long
Now I'm wondering if your love's still strong
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours

Then that time I went and said goodbye
Now I'm back and not ashamed to cry
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours.
