Top Ten Love Songs about Growing Old Together – Starting Out

I’ve created several lists of love songs about growing old together. These songs are all about people who plan to grow old together but are just starting their lives together. Some of these songs are commonly played during weddings and as first dance songs for this reason. If you are looking for songs to play at your wedding or to express your feelings about the person you love, then check out this list. As always, check out the the widgets (the boxes below the text) to hear a sample of the song or purchase the mp3 at either iTunes or

“Always” by Atlantic Starr

“Always” was written by several Atlantic Starr band members and, after sitting on the shelf, eventually sung as a duet between the lead singer, Barbara Weathers, and David Lewis. It became the band’s biggest hit.

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be you and me
Ooh your life is sun,
Chasing all the rain away,
When you come around you bring a brighter day
You’re the perfect one
For me and you forever we’ll be
And I will love you so for always

“Could I Have This Dance” by Anne Murray

“Could I Have This Dance” is actually from the soundtrack for the movie Urban Cowboy, while the movie is sort of forgettable, this song is a classical favorite at weddings. The song talks about finding that one person you want to fill your dance card for the rest of your life.

I’ll always remember,
that magic moment,
When I held you close to me

As we move together,
I knew forever,
you’re all I’ll ever need

“Could I Have This Kiss Forever” by Enrique Iglesias and/or Whitney Houston

“Could I Have This Kiss Forever” has been released both as a solo for Enrique Iglesias and as a duet between him and Whitney Houston. (The duet is only available on itunes.) The song is all about wanting to spend the rest of your life with the person you love.

Could I hold you for a lifetime
Could I look into your eyes
Could I have this night to share this night together
Could I hold you close beside me
Could I hold you for all time
Could I could I have this kiss forever
Could I could I have this kiss forever, forever

“For All We Know” by The Carpenters

“For All We Know” was featured in the movie Lovers and Other Strangers, which is about two people who get married but are surrounded by people having marital problems. The song is played during the scene where the two get married.

Love, look at the two of us
Strangers in many ways
Let’s take a lifetime to say
“I knew you well”
For only time will tell us so
And love may grow
For all we know.

“From This Moment On” by Shania Twain and/or Bryan White

This is another song that has been released as both a duet and as a solo. If you have never heard the song, but plan on skipping it because you don’t like country, wait. This song is not as “countrified” as some country songs and could have as easily been released as a pop song (which to be fair Shania Twain was always more Pop/Country than classic Country).

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can’t wait to live my life with you, can’t wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I Iive
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn’t give
From this moment on

“Grow Old With Me” by John Lennon or Mary Chapin Carpenter

I’m not a huge Beatles fan, so I first heard this song by Mary Chapin Carpenter. Apparently the song was found on a cassette tape recorded by Lennon as a home demo in the 1970s. Sadly, he was killed before he could record it in the studio. It was released on the Milk And Honey posthumous album in 1984 and later Beatles producer George Martin created an orchestral arrangement for it for use on the 1998 Lennon Anthology set.

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

“Hand in Hand” by 98° & LaShanda Reese

All admit I had never heard of LaShanda Reese or this song until I started researching this song. As you can see, the lyrics fit this theme of growing old together very well. I like that this song is about being equals and guiding each other on the journey of a lifetime of love.

Walk with me
Hand in hand
We will help each other understand
How to go through
There will never be a day
That we’ll grow apart
So we’ll forever be
Together, hand in hand

“The Best is Yet to Come” by Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and many others

As with any song released by Tony Bennett or Frank Sinatra, this song has been covered by everybody and their mother. I included several of them on the Amazon and iTunes widgets at the top and bottom of this page for you to listen to.

The best is yet to come and, babe, won’t it be fine?
You think you’ve seen the sun but you ain’t seen it shine
Wait till the warm-up’s underway
Wait till our lips have met
Wait till you see that sunshine day
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

“Then” by Brad Paisley

Brad Paisley wrote this song to express his love for his wife after the birth of their song. Some of the best lines in the song include “I can just see you with a baby on the way / I can just see you when your hair is turning gray / What I can’t see is how I’m ever gonna love you more / But I’ve said that before.”

I remember
Trying not to stare
The night that I first met you
You had me mesmerized
And three weeks later
In the front porch light
Taking forty five minutes
To kiss good night
I hadn’t told you yet
But I thought I loved you then

And now you’re my whole life
Now you’re my whole world
I just cant believe
The way I feel about you girl
Like the river meets the sea
Stronger then it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then

“Yes I Will” by the Backstreet Boys

While the lyrics of this song make it seem like a really good first dance song, the tempo is a little fast. You would be better playing it at another time during the wedding or reception.

Yes I will, take your hand and walk with you
Yes I will, so these three words I promise to
Yes I will, give you everything you need
And someday start a family with you
Yes I will, take your hand and walk with you
Yes I will, baby I promise to
Yes I will, give you everything you need
And someday start a family with you

“You and I” by Eddie Rabbitt And Crystal Gayle

“You and I” was a crossover hit duet between Gayle and Rabbit. The lyrics celebrate the bond of love between two people. As with any two people starting their lives together, the two predict a lifetime of happiness and dreams.

Just you and I
Just you and I
Sharing our love together
And I know in time
And I know in time
We’ll build the dreams we treasure.
And we’ll be all right
Just you and I

And I remember our first embrace
That smile that was on your face
The promises that we made
And now your love is my reward
And I love you even more
Than I ever did before
