Wedding Song
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


I've been having dreams and visions
In them you are always standing
Right beside me
I reach out for your hand
To see your arms extending
outstretched towards me

For you I don the veil
By your light
Others pale by comparison
I place my faith in love
My fate in this communion

I've been having dreams and visions
In them you are always standing
Right beside me
I reach out for your hand
To see your arms extending
Outstretched towards me

To you I give my pledge
I honor all that's good
In this life we're living
To think not only of myself
But of the greater union

Can I get a witness
There is salvation and rapture for the lonely
Can I get a witness
Bless this day sacred and holy
Sacred and Holy

I've been having dreams and visions
In them you are always standing
Right beside me
I reach out for your hand
To see your arms extending
Outstretched towards me

With you I am revealed
All my shame all my faults and virtues
Behold body mind and spirit
Heart and soul devoted all to you

Can I get a witness
There is salvation and rapture for the lonely
Can I get a witness
Bless this day sacred and holy
Sacred and Holy

My wife insisted we get married to this song when we wed in 2001. Just back for the nostalgic effects. We're going stronger than ever.

To my beloved where ever you are and whoever you are, this is our song baby! I love you. I know you are just as tired as I am of all the failed relationships. Hopefully we will eventually meet one day.❤

I'm curious. Has your beloved come into your life since you posted your comment 11 months ago?

Off the scale, I honestly believe this is one of the most beautiful and profound lyric I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot. Only picked up Telling Stories today and haven't stopped playing it yet, an absolute must have album <3
