Our Vows

Our wedding vows, adapted from Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am."

Soon-to-be-Spousal-Unit:
If you fall, I will catch you
You need help writing, I'll get a pen
Cuz I love the way you jump on the bed to wake me
And you take me the way I am

Me:
If you fall, I will catch you
You need a spark, I'll be your muse
Cuz I love the way you grumble every morning
And you take me the way I am

Soon-to-be-Spousal-Unit:
If you are sullen, I'll give you laughter
You're sad or hurt, I'll share your pain
Cuz I love the way you take things to heart
And you take me the way I am

Me:
The Cubs are losing; I'll ease your pain
The world is dark; I'll show you stars
Cuz I love the way all things in you run deeply
And you take me the way I am

Soon-to-be-Spousal-Unit:
If you are chilly, I'll be your sweater [Note: He accidentally said 'sweaty' instead. Way cute.]
You get too worried, I'll rub your back
Cuz I love the way you're cold, but love the snow
And you take me the way I am

Me:
If you are fevered, here, take my cold hands
You want to grow, I'll help you spread your roots
Cuz I love the way you sing to me off key
And you take me the way I am

Soon-to-be-Spousal-Unit:
If you have a hard day in richer times, I'll take you out for tofu
And if we should have little, I'll make lasagna instead
Cuz I'll love you more each day of our lives
And I'll take you the way you are

Me:
If you lose your hair in richer times, I will buy you Rogaine
And if we should have little, I'll knit you hats instead
Cuz I'll love you more each day of our lives
And I'll take you the way you are
