Pop songs are the poetry of our everyday life. Even the songs we’ve heard on the radio a thousand times have beautiful lyrics that shape our most treasured moments. This week, we here at Dream City Strings are going to share verses and choruses from some of our favorite love songs. Whether you need some lines to decorate signs at your reception or a few more meaningful words to complete your vows, we think you’ll find what you’re looking for in one of these tunes.

1. “Invincible” – Muse

Follow through
Make your dreams come true
Don’t give up the fight
You will be alright
‘Cause there’s no one like you in the universe

Muse is known for its modern space rock anthems, but their lyrics are often remarkably personal and heartfelt. This verse from their 2006 progressive ballad, “Invincible,” is a perfect example. The lines are encouraging and admiring. The relationship portrayed is one of respect and hope. Not only does the singer have dreams together with this person, but they also wish success for their partner on their own. Love is certainly about the bond a couple shares, but it is also about pushing one another to be the best each can be individually. On your wedding day, the words of “Invincible” can convey the support you and your loved one provide for one another.


2. “I Miss You” – blink-182

Hello there
The angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim
Of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we’ll wish this never ends
We’ll wish this never ends

Then, coming from some modern rockers of an entirely different breed, there’s blink-182’s “I Miss You.” These pop punk legends capture a couple that faces challenges in their life. Despite these worries that surround them, the embrace one another, like Jack and Sally from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Not many love songs acknowledge how nightmarish and dark life can truly be like “I Miss You” does. Yet, instead of retreating to misery, these figures become something greater together, ready to take on anything forever. If you’re looking for a realistic but confident and caring message from pop music for your wedding day, try these lyrics from this blink-182 masterpiece.


3. “Colour My World” – Chicago

As time goes on
I realize
Just what you mean
To me
And now
Now that you’re near
Promise your love
That I’ve waited to share
And dreams
Of our moments together
Color my world with hope of loving you

Last, there is this classic ballad from Chicago. The lyrics pictured above are all that appear in the short song. And perhaps they are all that are needed. To many couples young and old, they say everything. With each passing day, the relationship becomes more precious. At this instance, a warm and fantastic commitment to one another can be made. To make this promise is to make life vibrant and incredible. The words that appear throughout the wedding day often try to say as much as possible with as little as possible. So, we hope you see a million lifetimes of love with your significant other—and hear a million lifetimes of love in this song.

Ultimately, if there’s one thing we’ve learned here at Dream City Strings, it’s that music is powerful. Trying to find the songs and words that convey everything you feel on your wedding day is difficult—but not impossible. When you find the right tune and lyrics, you and your loved one will know it. We hope these songs help in that search. We also hope that we—Dream City Strings—can be part of the discovery. We provide string ensembles to assist in making the magic happen.
