I appologise if this should not be on here...

I'm looking for a song to run in the background of my partner and my own recent graduation video/photos - something slow(ish), hopefully with just an acoustic guitar or piano, with lyrics about finishing or a journey ending/beginning or life, etc. Ideally, I'd love a U2 song, but would consider any other suggestions as well. I've been so busy with work I have't jhad time to find anything and I kinda wanted to make it for my partner before he comes home next week. Any suggestions much appreciated!

For a U2 song I would suggest Kite, its not acoustic but it has a reflective feel to it and its a beautiful song.
A non U2 song is Falling Slowly from the Once, that just a piano and a guitar, I don't know how the lyrics would fit though.
If you like Green Day maybe try Time of your life too.

Hope this helped.

Well... I would suggest 'Dreaming With Tears in my Eyes'. The lyrics are a little somber, but it deals with memories and feeling sad about the end of something. It has a very serene, rolling piano riff throughout, and Bono sounds amazing in it. It just has a very gentle, reflective mood to it, and I think it would work really well with a slideshow.

It's sort of a lesser-known song, so I've uploaded it for you here if you're interested in checking it out ;o) Good luck!

Walk On kinda springs to mind? Just for the mixed emotions of it - leaving things behind and moving on, etc...

This may not be mellow enough, but lyric-wise "A Sort of Homecoming" may work...

There's a live version of North and South of the River that is mostly piano and guitar, and very beautiful and slow.

I recently heard a really nice and slow acoustic version of "I Will Follow" by Waz
