Me & Him



I was 19 and you were 20 
The year we got engaged 

Everyone said we were much to young
But we did it anyway 

We got the rings for 40 each from a pawnshop down the road
We said our vows and took the leap now 8 years ago 


We went dancing in the minefields
We went sailing in the storm 


And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that’s what the promise was for 


Well ‘I do’ are the two most famous last words.

The beginning of the end. 

But to lose your life for another I’ve heard is a good place to begin. 


Cause the only way to find your life is to lay your own life down.

And I believe it’s an easy price for the life that we have found.


And we’re dancing in the minefields
We’re went sailing in the storm

And it was harder than we dreamed 


But I believe that’s what the promise was for 

That’s what the promise is for
 


So when I lose my way, find me 

When I lose loves chains, bind me 


At the end of all my faith 

to the end of all my days 

when I forget my name, remind me 


Cause we bear the light of the son of man
So there’s nothing left to fear 

So I’ll walk with you in the shadow lands
Till the shadows disappear 


Cause he promised not to leave us
And his promises are true 

So in the face of this chaos baby
I can dance with you 


So lets go dancing in the minefields 

Lets go sailing in the storms 


Oh lets go dancing in the minefields 

And kicking down the doors 


Oh lets go dancing in the minefields 

And sailing in the storms 


Oh this is harder than we dreamed 

But I believe that’s what the promise if fo


Oh this is harder than we dreamed 

But I believe that’s what the promise if for
