2018, chapter 37: ‘Marry Me’ by Thomas Rhett (nr. 149)

Eminem‘s long-time friend is getting married – to another.

It hurts. It hurts to see her carefully plan it all. Her granddaddy preaching the service. Magnolias out in the country. Not too many people (she wants to save her daddy some money).

It hurts to get the invitation, a sign that it is too late. He remembered the night he almost kissed her. He always wondered if she felt the same way.

It hurts to see her in her dress, greeting her guests.

He could confess his feelings.  Instead, he wishes her the best. He doesn’t want to mess it up.

Instead, he’ll wear a black suit and a black tie and hide out in the back. He’ll do a strong shot of whisky straight out the flask and try to make it through without crying so nobody will see his pain.

51: ‘Bleeding Love’ by Leona Lewis

Ink and Harmony got married years ago.

As Harmony predicted, no one believed in their ability to last. And to be fair, Harmony wasn’t a fan of long-term commitment when they met. She had closed herself off from love because she didn’t need the pain from heartbreak. She has tried that once or twice, and it didn’t do her any good. And as time passed, her heart froze.

But with Ink, for the first time, she has found something true. Her heart melted completely.

Everyone thought she had gone crazy when she accepted Ink’s proposal. But she didn’t care. She was in love with him, They tried to get her to back out, so she wouldn’t get herself hurt, but they didn’t understand. It’s not easy for her to open up and they work for it every day for it to work, but it’s worth it.

She loved him so much, she was bleeding love.

They still try to make her doubt, talking so loudly, she has to listen, doubt herself.

But in the end, nothing’s greater than the rush that comes with being in his embrace. His is the face she sees in a world of loneliness.

So she would keep working on keeping the cold from reentering her heart and the doubt to reach her mind.

They would be married, no matter what anyone said.

10: ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri

Pink and the Old Flame are getting married.

As she stands ready to walk up to his side, Pink’s doubt emerges. How could she promise to love him forever, when every relationship thus far has failed? And won’t her fear lead this relationship to fail too?

But she dares to walk closer and sees him standing there, all alone and waiting for her. Her doubts wither away.

She walks up to him. Time stands still, as they promise each other love as eternal as the love that led them here. They promise each other that nothing will take away the bond they share. It has taken them years to here, and nothing will ever keep them apart again.
