Tonight’s Saturday Night Serenade is a fond reminder of a beautiful date night Mr. R. and I had many years ago.
We hadn’t been dating very long and we’d gone out bar-hopping with a group of his friends, at one point ending up at a country bar known for line-dancing on its huge dance floor. The place was packed asses to elbows and the dork in me worried about technicalities like emergency exits.
While I love to go line-dancing I knew it wasn’t his cup of tea so I was content to sip my drink and watch the crowd. But when this song came on he stood, took my hand and, much to the surprise of his friends, led me out onto the packed floor. He held me close as we swayed to the music and I knew in that moment that I was in love.
It’s such a beautiful memory and an amazing song. I hope you enjoy it, too. Happy Saturday night!
I Love the Way You Love Me by John Michael Montgomery
and I like the sound of your sweet gentle kiss.
The way that your fingers run through my hair,
and how your scent lingers even when you’re not there.
And I like the way your eyes dance when you laugh,
and how you enjoy your two hour bath.
And how you convinced me to dance in the rain
with everyone watching like we were insane.
But I love the way you love me.
Strong and wild, slow and easy.
Heart and soul, so completely.
I love the way you love me.
I like to imitate ol’ Jerry Lee
an’ watch you roll your eyes when I’m slightly off-key.
And I like the innocent way that you cry
at sappy old movies you’ve seen hundreds of times
And I could list a million things I love to like about you,
but they all come down to one reason I could never live without you.
