More Song Lyrics That Can Inspire Your Personal Vows

Couples often want to write and share their own vows, in addition to the officiant-led exchange of vows, but almost as often they don’t know where to start.

Song lyrics are a good source of inspiration. You can quote the lyrics directly or use them to spark your own ideas. Sometimes, the hardest part of any endeavor is the first step.

With that in mind, here are some song lyrics that could help you get started writing your own vows. (See also Favorite Song Lyrics.)

“Red Right Ankle” by The Decemberists
This is the story of your red right ankle
and how it came to meet your leg
and how the muscle, bone and sinews tangled
and how the skin was softly shaped
and how it whispered “oh, adhere to me
for we are bound by symmetry
and whatever differences our lives have been
we together make a limb”
this is the story of your red right ankle.

“Be My Wife” by David Bowie
Sometimes you get so lonely
Sometimes you get nowhere
I’ve lived all over the world
I’ve left every place

Please be mine
Share my life
Stay with me
Be my wife

“Tangled Up in You” by Staind
You’re my world
The shelter from the rain
You’re the pills
That take away my pain
You’re the light
That helps me find my way
You’re the words
When I have nothing to say
And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
I’m still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

“Nothing Else Matters” by Metallica
So close, no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters
Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters
