Songfacts®:

  • Tom Odell closes his Jubilee Road album with this celebration of his big sister's nuptials.

    You got the invites only late last night
    Flowers and wine, hey that's a real good price
    Don't rush it honey, 'til that dress feels right
    It's pretty normal for some butterflies


    Odell told The Sun in a track-by-track prior to the release of the record: "Shakespeare used to often end his comedies with a wedding. I thought the same might be nice with an album. This song is a dedication to my sister, which I wrote an anticipation of a wedding last year. Since then, she's had a baby, and I'm an uncle for the first time."
