Our "Official" Song

Dear Danny,

This is it - our song. I know this is not technically our anniversary, but since our computer is broke, I am covertly doing this at work. It's work hard enough here for both of us. This song is perfect for us. We both love Keith Urban, not only for his music, but for what he has gone through. His song "Thank You" describes our relationship to a tee. I am so proud of you. In our three years together, you have conquered your demons and overcame something that many people never are able to master. I am so lucky to have you and Hailey and I are both so greatful for the man that you have become. No part of it has been easy, but you have completely changed your life. I love you.

Thank You by Keith Urban:

There were nights where I was sure
I wouldn't see the morning sun
And there were days that seemed so dark
I couldn't wait for night to come
I couldn't stand to think about how
My life used to be
And how without a single warning
It all slipped away from me
Like a fool I thought I could fight
The shadows on my own
To the dark I was no stranger
But this was stronger than I'd known
And by the time I knew that I was too deep I'd gone too far
And the light that used to guide me
Had faded from my heart
And I found myself in places I thought I'd never go
Surrounded by stangers I was so far away from home
And I don't know how you found me
All I know is I owe everything to you.
Yes I do

And I thank you for my heart
I thank you for my life
And I thank god for grace and mercy
And that you became my wife
I'm seeing for the first time
The stars, the sun and moon
But they've got nothing on the power
Of this love I have for you
And I thank you, thank you

Now people say they'll never stand beside you
They swear they never leave
But when the rain started falling
You know it only fell on me
It was hard to keep believin' in myself
When all I felt was so much pain and guilt and shame
I couldn't even as for help
I don't know if I believe in other lives
But when you came
There was something so familar
About the way you said my name
And the whole world started turning
And I swear that I'd been born again brand new
And it's all because of you

And I've seen so many things
That I just can't explain
But the miracle of miracles is how
With your love I was saved

And I thank you for my heart
I thank you for my life
I thank god for grace and mercy
And that you became my wife
The day I started breathing
Was the day you took my hand
And 'til the day I die
Baby I'll forever be your man
And I thank you, I thank you

Love you - can't wait to dance tonight.
