Love Songs

So while I've heard of them previously and heard some of their songs, I'd never - until two days ago - really paid attention to The Civil Wars.  Well, I'm now in love.  That's right.  IN LOVE.  This couple is SO CUTE.

I know Brides are always on the lookout for the perfect music to play at their weddings.  These two write some very sweet and unique love songs.  Many of the songs are melancholy but a few would be perfect for a bridal processional or special part of the ceremony.  Here are two of my favorites that I think could be so cute sung as a duet at your wedding!  I've included lyrics and videos... and due to their adorable performances, you should watch both from start to finish.

Tip of My Tongue

You're a red string tied to my finger
A little love letter I carry with me
You're sunlight
Smoke rings and cigarettes
Outlines and kisses for silverscreens

Oh Well you own me with whispers like poetry
Your mouth is a melody I memorize
So sweet
I hear it echo everywhere I go
Day and night
Dear never saw you coming
Oh My
Look what you have done
You're my favourite song
Always on the tip of my tongue
The tip of my tongue

Oh Dear
I never saw you coming
Oh My
Look what you have done
Oh
You're my favourite song
Always on the tip of my tongue

Forget Me Not

I've been awaiting for you
And you've been awaiting for me
Tell me that you'll always be true
And you'll be the only one for me
Forget me not my dear, my darling
Forget me not my love
I just wanna hold your hand
Hang on every word you say
Let's write a song for us
And sing until we're old and grey
Forget me not my dear, my darling
Forget me not my love
I'm coming home real soon
Please leave a light on for me
Tell me that you'll always be true
And you'll be the only one for me
Yes, you'll be the only one for me



What do you think?  Are you, too, now in love?
