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 45 minutes to kiss goodnight.
I hadn't told you then,
That I thought I loved you then

And now you're my whole life,
And now you're my whole world,
And I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl,
Like a river meets the sea, stronger than it's ever been,
We've come so far since that day,
And I thought I loved you then

And I remember taking you back to right where I first met you,
You were so surprised.
There were people around, but I didn't care,
I got down on one knee right there,
And once again
I thought I loved you then

And now you're my whole life,
Now you're my whole world,
And I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl,
Like a river meets the sea, stronger than it's ever been,
We've come so far since that day,
And I thought I loved you then

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

And now your my whole life
Now your my whole world
I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl,
We'll look back someday at this moment that we're in
And I'll look at you and say
And I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then

    Logan Hudgel. I will always love you and you will always be my whole life, my whole world, and my everything. thanks for being there for me when i needed you the most and through the hardest time i had a year ago. if it wasnt for you i wouldnt have done anything about what happened to me a year ago if you remember. and i hope you do. i will always want to be your wife and i dream that we will get back together and both of our wishes will come true.

    This explains the relationship between my husband and i. We were together 14 years ago and split and we have reunited and are now married. It is an awesome song for us.
