"I Do" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
But do you think
that you on your knee propose
It's dangerous I know

[Chorus]
Love is a game until it's played
And if it's lost it can't ever be saved
We have heaven to win and hell to lose
But the difference is up to me and you
So if you will, I will stop saying I won't
And start saying I do

But life can take a long time
If you make the wrong choice
Time sure seems to fly by
When I hear your voice

Mistakes are hard,
I hope we find
The courage to believe
We will succeed

[Chorus]

Well our hearts are locked inside an iron box
We're both too afraid to reveal our most tender parts, oh

Because love is a game until it's played
And if you lose, you can't ever be saved
We have heaven to gain but hell to lose
The difference is up to me and you
So if you will, I will stop saying I won't
Stop saying I can't
Cause if you do, I do

    My Interpretationi think this song is about two people who have been together a long time now, but for some reason or another, have not taken the plunge into marriage. i think they've held back because they're scared of losing eachother, things in the media about divorce rates and falling out of love echo in their minds. so this is about, taking a risk for love, against what everyone else says about marriage and saying 'i do'.
