"The Wedding Song" as written by and Paul Holmes....
Black was the night when I found you,
But you've been running away
Running to gray, and
Black were the dogs that would hound you,
But they've been running away
Running to stay, and
Did you first believe
You're just so innocent that you would remain
But never the same
And when did you first give
To just a little bit of nowhere the same
Immunity never came

I'm gonna go to hell for this one
To hell for this one
Done well for this one I know, I know
I shouldn't have kissed ya, but
God how I missed ya
I never have loved you, but
Stay here I love you right now

And black was the night that I found you
But you've been running away
Running to gray
And black were the thoughts
That would drown you
But you've been running away
And when did you first believe
You were so innocent that you would remain
But never the same
And when did you first begin
As just an immigrant with nowhere to stay
Immunity never came

I'm gonna go to hell for this one
To hell for this one
Done well for this one I know, I know
I shouldn't have kissed ya
But God how I missed ya
I never have loved you, but stay here I love you right now
Your mother, your father
They shouldn't have bothered
You went with a man
Who has led to the slaughter right now
You feel the connection
You dealt with the action
You want me to save you
But no one can save us right now
No one can save us right now

I'm sure that you're down
Now you've been told
I'm sure I've turned black
All that was gold
We've got this disease and nothing to do
And life will go on without me and you
So I've come to think
And you try somehow
That no one will want
To be with us now
So why not believe
That we're meant to be
Not only in life
But eternity
Get married to me
Now that we're done

    General CommentTo me, this song is about AIDS.

    The man narrating the song knows he's infected, and yet he still takes a runaway girl home with him (I'm not sure if they knew e/o previously). She was young, and innocently believed she couldn't possibly become ill. He infects her:
    "You went with a man
    Who has led to the slaughter right now".

    He didn't/doesn't love her; he just wanted her so badly in the moment. Now that she's infected too, he figures they may as well remain together romantically, even though their relationship is devoid of genuine love. He supposes they should live the illusion, since no one else will want them.

    I don't feel the man regrets his actions. This is a fatalistic song, and his attitude almost seems to be 'It happened, I infected you, get over it and stay with me, as now I'm your best bet for love before you die.'
