For My Wedding

Album: Inside Job (2000)
  • For my wedding, I will dress in black
    And never again will I look back
    Ah, my dark angels we must part
    For I've made a sanctuary of my heart

    To want what I have
    To take what I'm given, with grace
    For this I pray
    On my wedding day

    For my wedding, I don't want violins
    Or sentimental songs about thick and thin
    I want a moment of silence and a moment of prayer
    For the love we'll need to make it in the world out there

    To want what I have
    To take what I'm given, with grace
    For this I pray
    On my wedding day
    On my wedding day

    I dream, and my dreams are all glory and light
    That's what I've wanted for my life
    And if it hasn't always been that way
    Well, I can dream and I can pray
    On my wedding day

    So what makes us any different from all the others
    Who have tried and failed before us
    Maybe nothing, maybe nothing at all
    But I pray we're the lucky ones; I pray we never fall

    To want what we have
    To take what we're given, with grace
    For these things I pray
    On my wedding day
