"I Stole A Bride" as written by and Darren Hayman....
And every Prince
Who lives in Greece
Will tear themselves to pieces for this beauty
Born of a swan

Jesus don't be long
Let her body sweat above mine in the summertime
And was it she who wrote
"Porn is Woman Hatred" on my overcoat

Christ I need that coat
'Cause it's cold outside
It really shouldn't be this cold in summertime

When
She lies with me
Will she forget I'm ugly
Will she pretend I'm pretty
Oh I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

Why
Must she taunt me so
She still has his scent
She still wears the suitors clothes

I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

And when the swan coupled with the goose
They conceived a holy beauty and they let her loose
And she caused a war, for ten long years
By running off with me she caused her husband tears

And those big clipper ships
They're heading straight for me and I just want to kiss her properly
Oh those big clipper ships
They're heading straight for me
And I haven't even kissed her properly

When
She lies with me
Will she forget I'm ugly
Will she pretend I'm pretty
Oh I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

Why
Must she taunt me so
She still has his scent
She still wears the suitors clothes
I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

And when I stepped in her room
With silver sword in hand
She stood there semi-naked
The sword fell from my hand

She let the silk slip
Gently fall from her hips
And Christ I want to kiss her
Because heaven lies within her lips

When she lies with me
Will she forget I'm ugly
Will she pretend I'm pretty
Oh I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

Why
Must she taunt me so
She still has his scent
She still wears the bastards clothes
I've lived a lie
I stole a pretty bride during the summertime

A pretty bride
During the summertime

    General CommentI think it's a great song with some smartly written lyrics. On the surface it looks just like a song written about the famous legend of Helen and Paris, but... to me, it can mean trying to steal someone else's significant other. We all know that still happens to this day. It's kind of funny how human beings haven't changed since the time of Helen and Troy.

    General CommentWowowow this song is so gorgeous. So. Gorgeous.
    It uses the allegory of Helen of Troy to describe his situation--he does steal someone else's bride. He feels really guilty ('why must she taunt me so/she still has his scent'). Yet she's so beautiful and he's afraid of losing her.
