lyrics

Watch me come in wearing my black
I've always looked better in that
Keep your white dress, I'm giving it back
On my wedding day

My fury is old, my bruises are blue
I'm carrying something precious and new
And everything else was borrowed from you
On my wedding day

No one will laugh, no one will smile
No one will look at me as a child
No one will walk me down the aisle
To give me away

I showed you my fear, I showed you my fists
I said what I thought of marital bliss
But you can't deny that it was like this
On your wedding day

It's gonna rain and put out all the flames
Of our matrimonial joy
And I guarantee you will suffer like me
If you make me wed this boy

I poisoned the wine, there's knives in the cake
The wedding is turning into a wake
And you're gonna understand your mistake
On my wedding day

Open the door and here comes the group
I feel a stirring deep in my womb
But there's a good reason for all the gloom
On my wedding day

There was no love, I didn't want him
A roll in the grass was all that it meant
And now I'm the one rambling in
A family way

I know that you're regretful of me
But when I walk in they're all gonna see
The shame and the sin that's swelling in me
On my wedding day

It's gonna rain and put out all the flames
Of our matrimonial joy
And I guarantee you will suffer like me
If you make me wed this boy
