Lyrics Breakdown

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you
And you’re beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way
Marry me

I believe that a happy marriage is not only based on the number of days, months, or years you have been together but it also determines the love given to each other every day. Marriage is a lifetime commitment not only to your partner but also to God.

Marriage is a thing that does not guarantee you to be together forever because the secret to make the marriage last is how you love, respect, trust, and understand your partner.
