It’s okay if you’re sleeping with me”

In these arms of mine
And you’ll never stand alone
Love is standing by”

Like a sweet magnolia tree

My love grew sweeter through the years
I know my baby loves me (my baby loves me)
My baby needs me (needs me)
That’s why we’ve made it through the years
I was made to love him
Worship and adore him”

Why You Should Play Whitney Houston At Your Wedding

In many ways, it seems as if Whitney Houston’s music was written with weddings in mind!

Just taking a look at the lyrics across her music and you will soon notice how appropriate they are for your special day.

Besides, who does not know of or like Whitney Houston?

Chances are, unless you already have your first dance song in mind, you’ll be able to find one in the list above. For example, look no further than ‘I Will Always Love You‘. It doesn’t get much better than that.

That being said, you’ll want to find those songs that resonate with you and your partner.

Read over the lyrics and choose as you see fit.

While these are my personal favorites they are also some of Whitney’s biggest hits. If you haven’t heard of them already then you are in for a treat!
