(I’ve got to quit “cheating” by posting song lyrics.)
My husband and I have been married for over 10 years now. We are best friends who got married in college. We are still best friends. And we are still learning so much about each other. He introduced me to opera music, Elliott Smith, and Ray Lamontagne, and I love him for that. (And for loads of other reasons.) This song of Ray’s has been a bit of a soundtrack for us lately. God is at work, deepening the quality of our love over time. 
 

Are you still in love with me
Like the way you used to be or is it changing?
Does it deepen over time like the river
That is winding through the Canyon?

Are you still in love with her?
Do you remember how you were before the sorrow?
Are you closer for the tears
Or has the weight of all the years left you hollow?

Are we strangers now?
Like the Ziegfeld Gal and the Vaudeville show?
Are we strangers now
Like rock and roll and the radio?
Like rock and roll and radio

I can see you lyin’ there
Tying ribbons in your hair and pullin’ faces
I can feel your hand in mine
Though we’re living separate lives in separate places

Are we strangers now?
Like the Ziegfeld Gal and the Vaudeville show?
Are we strangers now?
Like rock and roll and the radio?
Like rock and roll and radio

All these white lies hanging like flies on the wall
Hard wired, road tired
Counting curtain calls and waiting
Waiting for the axe to fall

Are you still in love with me
Like the way you used to be or is it changing?
Does it deepen over time, like the river
That is winding through the Canyon?

Are we strangers now?
Like the Ziegfeld Gal and the Vaudeville show?
Are we strangers now?
Like rock and roll and the radio?
Like rock and roll and radio
