The Way I Always Look

This song just popped up on my iTunes and I immediately thought it’d be a great First Dance song.

The Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra

But then I started really listening to the lyrics:

Some day, when I’m awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you…
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you’re lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart…
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely … Never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won’t you please arrange it ?
‘Cause I love you … Just the way you look tonight.

Mm, Mm, Mm, Mm,
Just the way you look to-night.

I think they’re really nice and would be great for a first dance, and as much as I want Kenny to remember what I look like on our wedding day, I want him to remember that he loves me even on the days when I look like crap, when I’m feeling sick, or when I just got home from running eight miles.

I don’t want him to love me based on how I look on our wedding night while we’re dancing the night away; I want him to love me just the way I look tonight…


  1. I love Sinatra! And Dean Martin and Gene Kelly.
    Ha, that song just send me a tangent to listen to a bunch of their songs.
    Anyhoo-I like the song and it would be a good first dance.
