Wedding Songs – Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes

Mannequin’s thoughts: As a person in love, this songs speaks to heart about the tender beginnings and anxiety of new love growing into the undeniable bond between two people. From the first moments when we drop the pretense and break down the walls to see into our love’s eyes and see love reflected. A beautiful song that expresses the journey we all take as we fall in love. Twenty five years later, it is still loved as evidence by the audience response at 2014 Rock and Rock Hall of Fame Induction of Peter Gabriel’s performance with Youssou N’Dour of his biggest hit, In Your Eyes. As presenter Chris Martin, of Coldplay, said of so in his introduction: “He turned into a superstar with two little letters.”

Lyrics

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you wanna go,
And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything
******************
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
******************
I hope you never look back, but you never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you live,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God’s grace, in every mistake,
And always give more than you take.
But more than anything, yeah, more than anything
******************
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish. Yeah, yeah.
******************
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish (my wish, for you).
******************
This is my wish (my wish, for you)
I hope you know somebody loves you (my wish, for you).
May all your dreams stay big (my wish, for you)

Wedding songs ~

Here it is, our song of the day for the Wedding Songs series in this blog:) I hope you like it and I hope you email me more suggestions (alan@mannequintheband.com). I’d love to know what you think are the best wedding songs of the today or of those that are timeless ~

 

Song Details From Wikipedia:

“The single was released in North America as the third single from “So” in the U.S., the song achieved strong radio airplay and a constant MTV rotation. It reached #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks on September, 13 of the same year,[2] it also peaked #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1986.[3]

The song was used twice in the 1989 US Cameron Crowe film, Say Anything…, as well as in its trailer. An iconic scene from the film occurs when broken-hearted Lloyd Dobler serenades his ex-girlfriend, Diane Court, outside her bedroom window by holding a boombox up above his head and playing the song for her.

In a September 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, discussing the 25th anniversary of So, Gabriel commented on the cultural impact of the scene, I’ve talked to John Cusack about that. We’re sort of trapped together in a minuscule moment of contemporary culture.”[8] In October 2012, as Gabriel played the first few bars of the song during a performance at theHollywood Bowl, Cusack walked onto the stage, handed him a boombox and took a bow, before quickly walking off again. Cameron Crowe was also present at the concert and later tweeted “Peter Gabriel and John Cusack on stage together at the Hollywood Bowl tonight. Won’t forget that… ever.”[9]
