January Wedding - A song!

I am obsessed with a band. My sister, my mom, my husband, my friends, my town, my state are all obsessed with a band. They are called "The Avett Brothers" and they speak directly to the core of my being. They have impacted my life, made me feel things deeper, taught me about family and love and life.

They just came out with a new album called "I and Love and You" and #2 on the new CD is called January Wedding. I wanted to share it with all of the January brides. It would be such a great 1st dance song.

We played a ton of their music at our wedding. If you are not familiar with the band then I have a few requests:
  1. Listen to the lyrics...they will move you
  2. Listen to these songs first: If It's The Beaches, The Offering, When I Drink, November Blue, I and Love and You and then listen to every single other song!

Lyrics to "January Wedding" by The Avett Brothers:
She keeps it simple
And I am thankful for her kind of lovin'
'Cause it's simple

No longer do we wonder if we're together
We're way past that
And I've already asked her
So in January we're gettin' married

She's talkin' to me with her voice
Down so low I barely hear her
But I know what she's sayin'
I understand because my heart and hers are the same
And in January we're gettin' married

And I was sick with heartache
And she was sick like Audrey Hepburn when I met her
But we would both surrender
True love is not the kind of thing you should turn down
Don't ever turn it down

I hope that I don't sound to insane when I say
There is darkness all around us
I don't feel weak but I do need sometimes for her to protect me
And reconnect me to the beauty that I'm missin'
And in January we're gettin' married

No longer does it matter what circumstances we were born in
She knows which birds are singin'
And the names of the trees where they're performin' in the mornin
And in January we're gettin' married
Come January let's get married

Have you found your first dance song? Did you choose it because of your wedding month?!

  1. Sooooo, as you know, "come January" Ed and I are gettin' married. Would love to incorporate this some somewhere.... maybe one of the songs played while guest are waiting our arrival? We do have our 1st dance song (and have already "practiced" to it per Ed's request - he,he - he's so sweet. Keith Urban's "Love Me This Way"
