A Wedding Ballad

Two years, three years, five years passed

Now we're in this chapel

Everything feels surreal

It all feels like a dream

 

Two years, three years, five years passed

Now you're there all dressed in white

Wearing your best smile

With stars in your eyes

 

You look so beautiful today

In that dress, with those flowers in your hand

In this place and it's all so whimsical

"I do" "I do" All those magic words

They sound like music to my ears

I don't know what to feel

On this special day

You smiled with tears in your eyes

I smiled and did the same

And wonder what the future will be like

 

Two years, three years, five years passed

When i met you in the park by the river

Asking to myself "were you the one?"

'Cause spending the future with you, it made sense

 

Two years, three years, five years passed

Now I am standing right here with my own two feet

Looking at you walking down the aisle

Trying my best to keep my composure

But it seems like I can't

 

You look so beautiful today

In that dress, with those flowers in your hand

In this place and it's all so whimsical

"I do" "I do" All those magic words

They sound like music to my ears

I don't know what to feel

On this special day

You smiled with tears in your eyes

I smiled and did the same

And wonder what the future will be like

 

Two years, three years, five years passed

I still haven't moved on

Now we're both right here

You in your white dress, his wife to be

Me, in my suit as you walked past me

Here I am supporting you on your special day

Now it's time to set you free

I'll leave you to it so you can both be happy

 

You look so beautiful today

In that dress, with those flowers in your hand

In this place and I can hear my heart breaking

"I do" "I do" those magic words

They sound like sad music to my ears

I don't know what to feel

On this special day of yours

You smiled with tears in your eyes

I smiled and put on a disguise

Muttering an "i love you" one last time

 

Two years, three years, five years passed

"Congratulations" that's all I coud say

Now there's only one thing left to do

I guess this is it

Goodbye, I'm letting you go
