This is Us

About the song I added to the blog... it is a song by Mark Knopfler (formerly of Dire Straits) and Emmylou Harris. Two of Kurt and I's (kurt and me? ... Kurt and My....oh whatever) OUR faves... It is a song that came out AFTER Kurt and I were married, from the "All the Road Running" CD. We both immediately loved the song - and thought "this IS us" ... we hadn't even had Liam at that point... now that we do, it really fits. Because our Baby boy IS our pride and joy.

If anyone remembers... please play this song at our 25th anniversary...

Here are the lyrics - the version I posted is a live version, and a little harder to hear than the CD version.
This is us down at the Mardi Gras
This is us In your Daddy's Car
You were the missing link
Yeah, I'd had a little too much to drink,now
Too long in the sun
Having too much fun
You and me and our memories

This is usRocking at the barbecue
Yeah, when we said I do
Hand jiving on the Ballroom floor
You in that wedding coat you wore
And you in that amazing dress
I was stoned on love I guess
You and me we were meant to be
This is us
This is us on our Honeymoon
In our hotel room
Sitting by the wishing well
Checking out of the love motel
Making plans for the sunshine state
Waiting at the terminal gate
You and me making history
This is us

And our baby boy
With our pride and joy
You at the Sunday Game
Standing next to What's hisname?

On our Anniversary
With the family
You and me and our memories
This is us
