The Best Backstreet Boys Songs for Your Wedding

Nick Carter popped the question to his girlfriend of four years, fitness expert/actress Lauren Kitt, earlier this week while taking a boat ride to a secluded island on the Florida Keys. "I had the ring in my pocket for two weeks," Carter told People. "I was like, 'I don't want it anymore!' It was driving me insane. I just wanted to get it out of my hands and onto hers."

I may have been slightly obsessed with the Backstreet Boys in middle school. So, in honor of my second favorite Backstreet Boy's engagement news, here's a list of classic songs from the group for your wedding:

First Dance Songs

►"I'll Never Break Your Heart" (Backstreet Boys)
"I'll never break your heart / I'll never make you cry / I'd rather die than live without you / I'll give you all of me / Honey, that's no lie."


► "As Long as You Love Me" (Backstreet Boys/Backstreet's Back)
"I don't care who you are / Where you're from / What you did / As long as you love me."

► "Anywhere for You" (Backstreet Boys)
"I'd walk halfway around the world / For just one kiss from you / Far beyond the call of love / The sun, the stars, the moon / As long as your love is there to lead me /  I won't lose my way, believe me / Even through the darkest night / I'd go anywhere for you / Anywhere you asked me to / I'd do anything for you / Anything you want me to."


► "No One Else Comes Close" (Millennium)
"No one else comes close to you / No one makes me feel the way you do / You're so special, girl, to me / And you'll always be eternally / Every time I hold you near / You always say the words I love to hear / Girl with just a touch, you can do so much / No one else comes close."

► "Yes I Will" (Black & Blue)
"This is no ordinary love / And I can never have enough / Of all the things you've given to me / My heart , my soul, my everything / Every night I thank you lord (I thank you lord) / For giving me the strength to love her more / And more each day I promise her / As long as I hear those three words / Yes I will, take your hand and walk with you / Yes I will, say these three words I promise to / Yes I will, give you everything you need / And someday start a family with you."

► "I Promise You (With Everything I Am)" (Black & Blue)
"I promise you / From the bottom of my heart / I will love you till death do us part / I promise you as a lover and a friend / I will love you like I never love again / With everything I am."

Mother/Son Dance:

► "The Perfect Fan" - (Millennium)
"You showed me / When I was young just how to grow / You showed me everything that I should know / You showed me how to walk without your hands / 'Cause mom, you always were the perfect fan / God has been so good / Blessing me with the family / Who did all they could / And I've had many years of grace / And it flatters me when I see a smile on your face / I wanna thank you for what you've done / In hopes I can give back to you / And be the perfect son."
