this day was meant to be
a day that i would treasure
this day was meant to be
a way to make us closer

could it be he doesnt see
that we dont fit together?
could it be that this will be
the way it feels forever?

this day was planned for years
i prayed at every altar
this day confirmed my fears
there's nothing left to wait for

battered bride dry your eyes
things will change i promise
red on white just you wait
you might learn to like it

this day was full of pain
i tried hard not to feel it
the magazines explained
something completely different

if i could have my way
id run home to my parents
im scared but have to stay
i made a firm commitment

battered bride dry your eyes
things will change i promise
red on white just you wait
you might learn to like it

pay your dues
bruised and numb
love means compromises
black and blue
love can come
in all shapes and sizes

battered bride
dry your eyes
things will change i promise
run and hide
all youd like
only death will part us....

battered bride
dry your eyes....

    General CommentThis song isn't shared, it's impossible to find right now.. But you should wait until after Amanda Palmer's album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer?, comes out in early March or something like that. Apparently that's when a lot of the songs that are hard to find will be available.
