  • Joann from Portsmouth, VaJust love this song, last week at a wedding this song was playing & what a tear jerker. I do not remember this song being in the movie The Notebook so since I have the movie I will see, maybe its not. anyway listen deeply to all the words and it really hits home to how 2 deeply in love are to each other.
