"The Bride" as written by and David Donnell Longstreth....
An anonymous bouquet
Raised a longing in the bride
Beckoning everyone in for the good news, that
No one has any good reason to live

Tears of laughter did pervade
Your ambivalent betrayer
Where was your diamond engaged that an instant
Could be written over like a page
In a dead book, yeah

Whose cascading empathy
Could really reach beyond tomorrow
And when the dinner chime
When the clarion calls
Won't be anyone listening at all

    General CommentI figured out a few of the missing spots...see what you think:


    I...I want a missed bouquet
    raised a longing in the (?)
    beckoning everyone in for the good news that
    no one has any good reason to live

    Tears of laughter did pervade
    your ambivalent behavior
    where was your diamond engaged but an instant
    could be written over like a page
    in a dead book, yeah

    whose cascading empathy
    could really reach beyond tomorrow?
    and when the dinner chime
    when the (?) calls (or comes??)
    will be anyone listening at all?

    General Comment"Raised a longing in the bride" makes sense, and the last line is "When the clarion calls, will be anyone listening at all?"

    General Commenti agree that the first part could be "bride", even though it sounds like "breath". however, he's most definitely saying instinct and not instant. listen to the "inct", its there.

    General Commentthe first line is actually "an anonymous bouquet" which actually makes sense when it is followed by "raised a longing in the bride."

    General Commenti definitely hear that now druminscrubs25..

    also, could "could really reach beyond tomorrow" be "could really reach beyond to borrow"?

    General Commentand when the dinner chime...

    I think this actually is
    "and when the tear ducts dry up" just sung very quickly!
