This track is widely used by many couples and just listening to the lyrics you can see why. It was only released in 2017 but soon became the song of choice.
John Legend - All of me

Lonestar - Amazed
Released in March 1999 "Amazed" is a song by American country music group Lonestar.
The opening lyrics speak for themselves : -
Every time our eyes meet ,This feeling inside me, Is almost more than I can take, Baby, when you touch me, I can feel how much you love me, And it just blows me away.
This track is an obvious choice by the great Aerosmith. It's actually a rock ballad created for the 1998 natural disaster film Armageddon, which lead singer Steven Tyler's daughter Liv Tyler starred in.
