The Wedding Song

I can see you
On your wedding day
With the one you love
To share the way
A life ahead of you
Youth left behind
Go out and make yourself
Some memories

Despair and pleasure
Faced at every turn
And there's children
To save from harm's way
Three thousand doorways
Reveal a thousand more
Treasure each moment
Forever more

I promise to love you and do my best for you
I need you to help me to find my strength
Walk with me all through my life
My lover my husband my wife
Share this journey with me
Write this story with me

Life comes and it will go
And there's no time to sit and watch the grass grow
When we are old and grey you know we'll say
We went and made ourselves some memories

We're starting our life
We're starting together now
I need you to help me to find my strength
Walk with me all through my life
My lover my husband my wife
Share this journey with me
Write this story with me

--The Wedding Song, Howard Jones, found on the 1998 album People

I have really strong, positive feelings about this song. My vision of what the video should be has a home movie/8mm film feel, with occasional odd angles of the movie screen, HJ singing in front of a screen alternating with his clothing being the screen, and with the same unflinching sentimentality exhibited by When Harry Met Sally. If I had infinte power, I would make that video in a hearbeat.
