Wedding Song Remake – Marry Me by Martina McBride & Pat Monahan

by

“Marry Me” is the title of a song written by Pat Monahan and recorded by his group Train. Train recorded two versions of this song (see separate post here). Country music artist Martina McBride recorded a duet version with Pat Monahan for her eleventh studio album, Eleven. It was released as the third single from the album on March 26, 2012. The female voice takes the song to another dimension and the fact that it is a duet with Pat Monahan, the original singer, makes it more than just a cover. The two voices are akin to a bride and groom singing to each other, and whilst the original is already widely used at weddings, this version is a great alternative.

Marry Me

Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

Together could never be close enough for me
To feel like I am close enough to you
You’ll wear white and I’ll wear out the words “I love you”
And “you’re beautiful”
Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way

Marry me
Today and every day
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will
Mm-hmm
Say you will
Mm-hmm

Promise me
You’ll always be
Happy by my side
I promise to
Sing to you
When all the music dies

Marry me
Today and everyday
Marry me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will
I will
Come on say you will
You know I will
Marry me
