"Up or Down"


I know I promised to elaborate about the wedding, but I want to wait until I have more time to really sit down and think about everything. So, to hold you over, here are the lyrics to the song Jake wrote and performed during the reception. It was absolutely the best part of the entire wedding!

I left this town to get out of state
I was sick and tired of this place
I was in search of the college life
That’s where I first saw your face

At a party that my friends would throw
I saw you standing there alone and cold
I looked around and thought to myself
As I asked you if you wanted my coat

Chorus:
I’m not quite sure what I’m supposed to do now
I don’t know which way is up n’ which way is down
I knew I’d spend my life, everyday
Just trying to catch my breath before you’d take it away
One thing that I knew would always be true
You’d love me to the end and I’d love you

I remember as the days went on
Semesters were short and the summers were long
Together at night or on the phone
We knew that we’d never be alone

We’d laugh together, sometimes we’d cry
Often times, we wouldn’t know why
Knew our lives would work out like they should
I’d think to myself I’m a lucky guy and

Chorus:
I’m not quite sure what I’m supposed to do now
I don’t know which way is up n’ which way is down
I knew I’d spend my life, everyday
Just trying to catch my breath before you’d take it away
One thing that I knew would always be true
You’d love me to the end and I’d love you

I thin back now to those days
I wouldn’t trade them now for anything
I see you here dressed in white
My life in this town is finally right

We’re back in this town that I wanted to leave
It took a thousand miles to get you here
You’re right before me and I just can’t believe
My life with you now seems so clear

Chorus:
I’m know just what I’m supposed to do now
I know which way is up n’ which way is down
I’ll spend my life, ever day
Just trying to catch my breath before you take it away
One thing I still know will always be true
You’ll love me to the end and I’ll love you

It was, and is, beautiful. I don't have adequate words to express what it felt like to sit there and see him perform this.
I am forever amazed.

Love,
Mom
