If there’s one song that portrays a “promise of an everlasting love”, or simply an emotional “outpour” that comes out of one’s heart in full sincerity then definitely that is “From Here To Eternity” by Michael Peterson. Moreover, it can also be ranked as one of the best proposal and a wedding song of all time.

As for me, listening to this song made me feel its genuineness of the one speaking his heart out towards the love of his life dedicating everything to that person, and making someone feels that promises do come from the heart. Read about the first wife of Johnny Cash here.

The Song…

“From Here To Eternity” was released in September 1997 as part of Michael Peterson’s very first album “Michael Peterson”. Moreover, Michael Peterson himself wrote the song with the help of Robert Ellis Orrall. Remarkably, the song became his signature song. It was his first No.1 song that topped the country charts.

Furthermore, on Billboard Hot Country Songs on December 13, 1997, the song surpassed other great artists and their songs such as “Longneck Bottle” by Garth Brooks at No.2, “Love Gets Me Everytime” by Shania Twain at No.3, “The Rest Of Mine” by Trace Adkins at No.4, and “Land Of The Living” by Pam Tillis.

The Story…

Did you know that the song was supposed to be a spiritual song? That Michael Peterson wrote the song about faith and it turned out to be a country love song.

Additionally, the Billboard magazine reviewed the song as a well-written ballad with a sweet ripe emotion. It was also reviewed that Peterson’s vocals perfectly captured the warm feeling in the lyrics.

The Lyrics…

I did everything I could to get you here tonight
Without telling you why
Now girl if you only would please hold out your hand
And just close your eyes
I’ve been dying to ask you this one burning question
Will you be mine

From here to eternity
I’m asking you to share your life with me
Now and forever I guarantee
I’ll always stay by your side
I promise my love to you
I’m willing and able and ready to
Whatever you need I am here for you
And I’ll always be
From here to eternity

And It Goes…

Well, I saved a year for this ring
I can’t wait to see how it looks on your hand
I will give you everything that one woman needs
For a one woman man
I’ll be strong, I’ll be tender
A man of my word and I will be yours

From here to eternity
I’m asking you to share your life with me
Now and forever I guarantee
I’ll always stay by your side
I promise my love to you
I’m willing and able and ready to
Whatever you need I am here for you
And I’ll always be
From here to eternity
