    so i'm getting my g/f an ipod nano for xmas, and i want to engrave something on the back that she'll really like. i know it really has to come from me, but if anyone would like to help me out, that'd be great.

    i sure hope she doesn't find macrumors anytime soon :eek:

    'songs for an angel'

    *vom*

    but seriously. we don't know the kind of person you are; hopeless romantic? tough-guy?


    don't engrave anything like '[your name + her name 4eva]' though. :rolleyes:

    ok, we are both runners, and i'd for it be somewhat motivating. not really sure what i mean though. something that could be motivating for our relationship and for anything in life, like running.

    hope that makes sense

    I'd suggest 'always go the distance'.
    But it sounds like a semi-marriage-proposal...hah.

    well it looks like there are 29 characters and 2 lines, so a total of 58 characters.

    it could be from a song as well. i want it to be really good

    then find a motivational lyric.

    you're set. :cool:

    thanks, i'm trying. no luck so far.

    what about this: "Anything worth while will not come easy."

    i kinda like it, but i'd have to have something else to go with it on the second line

    well here are the lyrics to "our" song:

    "Baby you're all that I want.
    When you're lying here in my arms
    I'm finding it hard to believe
    We're in heaven.

    Oh, thinking about all our younger years,
    There was only you and me,
    We were young and wild and free.
    Now nothing can take you away from me.
    We’ve been down that road before,
    But that's over now.
    You keep me coming back for more.

    Baby you're all that I want.
    When you're lying here in my arms
    I'm finding it hard to believe
    We're in heaven.

    And love is all that I need
    And I found it there in your heart.
    It isn't too hard to see
    We're in heaven.

    Now, nothing could change what you mean to me.
    There's a lot that I could say
    But just hold me now,
    Cause our love will light the way.

    Baby you're all that I want.
    When you're lying here in my arms
    I'm finding it hard to believe
    We're in heaven.

    And love is all that I need
    And I found it there in your heart.
    It isn't too hard to see
    We're in heaven.

    Now our dreams are coming true.
    Through the good times and the bad
    I'll be standing there by you.

    (We’re in heaven.)

    And love is all that I need
    And I found it there in your heart.
    It isn't too hard to see
    We're in heaven. "

    see anything in there?

    That's good for running! And everything else, actually. You've got me thinking about stuff now, damn you!

    I don't know what could go on the second line.


    [edit] Anything from that song would work nicely.

    'Through the good times and the bad
    I'll be standing there by you'

    thanks, that's actually a good part of the song. should i go with that, or the running quote and another quote on the second line?

    thanks, i sure hope so.

    and to the ones who don't like engraving or whatever. i'm not big on it either, but i know that she'll love it (if i come up with something good)

    thanks. what about this:

    “True love is like a pair of socks: you gotta have two and they've gotta match.”

    kinda catchy i guess. a witty one would work also. not sure about this one though.

    i would definitely go for something more running related rather than relationship related. if you break up, she's not going to want to use it with some quote about unending love on the back.

    Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger.


    A la Daft Punk for those that don't get the reference.

    sorry i didn't mean to insinuate that a break up WOULD happen, just that there is aways a possibility.

    i liked luis' suggestion.

    if you're still stumped, there's always beatle's lyrics :eek:

    Holly (rap. I was with my wife for 5 years before we married. I thought that was a long time.

    How about - Run until battery is dead or three hours. Which ever is first. :D

    oh man, I can't stand all the cheese! :eek:

    how about something simple

    "Merry Christmas [your chica's name here]

    Love, [your name here]"



    or, maybe:

    "You and me baby we ain't nothin' but mammals..."

    "Love, the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket."

    :D
