Wedding First Dance Song:
All My Life” By K-Ci & JoJo Lyrics

I will never find another lover sweeter than you,
Sweeter than you
And I will never find another lover more precious than you
More precious than you
Girl you are close to me you’re like my mother,
Close to me you’re like my father,
Close to me you’re like my sister,
Close to me you’re like my brother
You are the only one my everything and for you this song I sing

And all my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do love me too
I said you’re all that I’m thinking of…..baby

Said, I promise to never fall in love with a stranger,
You’re all I’m thinking of, I praise the Lord above,
For sending me your love, I cherish every hug,
I really love you

And all my life, baby, baby, I’ve prayed for someone like you,
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you, baby
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do, love me

You’re all that I ever known, when you smile, on my face, all I see is a glow.
You turned my life around, you picked me up when I was down,
You’re all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow,
You picked me up when I was down
You’re all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow,
You picked me up when I was down and I hope that you feel the same way too,
Yes I pray that you do love me too

All my life, I’ve prayed for someone like you,
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I’ve prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too
