Lyrics

The way,the way you make me smile,
Is second only, to the light within your eyes,
When I look at you
So let's take ,this moment in our lives,
And make it last awhile,In your heart and mine
By the way you make me smile.

Standin' here today fulfills a fantasy,
A dream that once was lost, but now is found.
The love we share together will grow endlessly,
So the vows we make today,will rest on solid ground.

The way,the way you make me smile,
Is second only, to the light within your eyes,
When I look at you.
So let's take ,this moment in our lives,
And make it last awhile,In your heart and mine
By the way you make me smile.

Things don't always turn out,like we want them to,
And life's not always just what we had planned.
I'm so glad I waited ,darlin',just for you,
You're the one I've always dreamed of,
You are perfect in God's plan!

The way,the way you make me smile,
Is second only, to the light within your eyes,
When I look at you
So let's take ,this moment in our lives,
And make it last awhile,In your heart and mine
By the way you make me smile.

Your song was good. The originality of the song really stood out. This sounds like it is off of an older Amy Grant album. Your timber (the unique sound of your voice) is really good and has a nice attraction, pull to it. The arrangement was great and your chord progression was excellent. Your lyrics were very tender.

Very nice Christian love song. I think a lot of people can relate to the lyrics. I think this would benefit from background vocals harmonizing.

Definite market potential, very sweet song and seems truly heartfelt and sincere. Very professionally written and the performances were very good.

Nice strong hook. Hopefully I guessed the name of the song right, seems obvious to me!

With some a few production tweaks, I could hear this getting airplay.

Nice introduction (I like the bass slide). This is a really sweet wedding day love song. Sung with believable passion and clarity, the message comes across beautifully. Powerful vocal! I like the "perfect in God's plan" lyric. Adds the spiritual element, which I believe is so key to a successful relationship. Instrumentation and production is really lovely. I wish you the best with this song!

The melody and progression are elegant and well shaped. I like the voice.

Very Nice! Kudos to Producer!

Wedding song ... sellable

Fantastic.. Loved the retro kind of vibe i got from this. Reminded me of the Jackson family. Wonderful and I am sure success is just around the corner here. The voice is awesome!
