lyrics

i was standing in the garden at your mother's wedding party
i was trying to remember what they had on draft
i was staring just beyond you and your dress was kind of on you
and i might have said something but you moved to fast

and the mountains and the valleys, and the valleys by a river
and i just lost track of what you're trying to say
and the candles are burning while the children are learning
that this is the way you get given a way

you give your hand to me
i wonder if you see
this as a dark or brighter day
cause i can't walk you down
the aisles in the ground
if all this sky is in your way

and there isn't an answer is beside the question
when you dont know who you're talking to
and if you're a dancer, i offer confession
i do, i do, i do

you give your hand to me
i wonder if you see
this as a dark or brighter day
cause i cant walk you down
the aisles in the ground
when all this sky is in your way

maybe i’ll be married in june
rome wasn’t built in a day
maybe you can kneel beside
the burial ground and pray

seems like there were flowers in a basket
i would tell you something if you asked it
i don't have your number, here's mine
would it kill you to stay?

confusion's not unusual
at weddings and funerals
but i don't get to make the rules
and really it's not up to you
any way
would it kill you to stay?

you give your hand to me
i wonder if you see
this as a dark or brighter day
cause i cant walk you down
the aisles in the ground
if all this sky is in your way

i was standing in the garden of your mother's wedding party
i was trying to remember what they had on draft
i was staring just beyond you and your dress was kind of on you
and i might have said something but you moved to fast
