This song was basically just the transcription of a dream. I had a dream and I wrote it down and it became this song.
The Wedding was not the main event, but her family was there,
Her sister wore a party dress, you shoulda seen her hair.
They all stood at the alter, there was no priest in sight.
Their mother was the master, of the ceremonial night.
At the stadium around the block, the crowds were standing by,
The white and silver shimmering, in the incandescent sky.
And I cannot get it off my mind, what happened at the church,
Her mother took my by the hand, and left me in the lurch.
She promised me she’s read my palm, it wouldn’t take that long,
She said it at the altar, in the middle of a song.
And I’ll tell you things you wanna hear, even if they aren’t true,
And I’ll make you break a habit, if it’s the last thing that I do.
