This lightweight ditty is narrated by a bride preparing for her wedding. She is looking forward to dressing up in a pink dress, and doing her hair up tight so she looks nice when she walks down the aisle to marry her man. And, in her childish excitement she dreams about being "happy for all time" with him.
On the face of it the song appears to be a celebration of O'Connor's fourth marriage to Irish therapist Barry Herridge, whom she tied the knot with on December 9 2011 in Las Vegas. However, all the tracks on How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? were written when the singer was with her previous partner, Frank Bonadio. She told The Guardian that the album, "was written between 2007-09, and recorded in 2010-11. I was going out with [Bonadio] and writing these songs. My creative process is quite slow. I hear melodies in my head while I'm washing the dishes and I allow my subconscious to do the work."
