Bouquet (Demo)

Lyrics that differ from the finished version are in italics/bold


She was the one
Who caught the bouquet
The night of her sister's wedding day

She was the one
Who caught the bouquet
A token that God must want it that way

She started looking for the Mr. Right
Ah, but the Mrs. wasn't ready then
But they were married on the way, and oh,
There's nothing sadder than the words,
"It might have been"

He was the one
But she couldn't sense
'Cause Jesus was just a reference
For a wife

Expecting to find
What couldn't be there
Assuming he'd still beat solitaire
What a life

They thought that time would turn their lust to love
They thought the other person had control
But marry two half people, and oh,
Neither one could make the other whole

Swallow it hard, 'cause you knew better within
Stuck between your heart and your head
And does it matter that he's gone again?
There's nothing sadder than the words,
"It might have been"

She was the one
The bouquet deceived
Believer that never could believe
She was loved

And now she's the one
Who's lonely again
She's wondering how it might've been
