The Journey | by Scott Badger & Robert Durst | 2010 | Jessica’s Wedding Song

It wasn’t all that long ago, we stood where you now stand
Prepared to take the journey, I took your mother’s hand
And we set out on our own at last, declared our childhood done
Content to end one journey. and start another one

It wasn’t all that long ago, You stepped upon the stage
All songs and smiles and tears and trials
A wonder for your age
And all the time we watched you grow, we also watched you fade
And set off on your journey, that led you to this day

It all goes by so quickly
It’s Spring and then it’s Fall
We come and go like ice and snow
We freeze and then we thaw
And I’m so glad to have been there to help you on your way
To be part of your journey, that brought you to this day

It won’t be all that long from now, you’ll stand where we now stand
To watch your son or daughter reach to take another’s hand
To set off on their own at last, to stand and watch them go
And take your husband’s hand to find, the next stop down the road

And if I knew the secret
Oh, Jesus, I would tell
To try to save a little pain, or lift you when you fell
But all I know is what I knew that day so long ago
It’s all about the journey, not stops along the road

It all goes by so quickly
It’s Spring and then it’s Fall
We come and go like ice and snow
We freeze and then we thaw
And I’m so glad to have been there to help you on your way
To be part of your journey, that brought you to this day

Extra-Ordinarily In Love | by Scott Badger & Robert Durst | 2014 | Sam’s Wedding Song

She’s reasonably attractive, in her special sort of way
Different from that kind of look the girls all have today
As I recall her eyes are blue
And she relatively sane
She’s everything I’ve been dreaming of
I’m extra-ordinarily in love

She takes her time to chew her food, she doesn’t spit much when she speaks
Name-droppers, story-toppers are two of her pet peeves
As I said to the President
When I saved his life last week
She’s everything I’ve been dreaming of
I’m extra-ordinarily in love

Extra-ordinary means that she’s the best of all
Just a little bit of devil made the angels fall
Above average intelligence
She goes by a fella’s name
She’s everything I’ve been dreaming of
I’m extra-ordinarily in love

Well I’ve been around the world, but now I’m finally home
I’ve heard their piece, I’ve had my say, I’m tired of being alone
As I recall her eyes are blue
But she loves me all the same
She’s everything I’ve been dreaming of
We’re extra-ordinarily in love

Extra-ordinary means that she’s the best of all
Just a little bit of devil made the angels fall
Above average intelligence
She goes by a fella’s name
She’s everything I’ve been dreaming of
I’m extra-ordinarily in love
