Like wedding guests all leaving, full up & tied,
Warmed by another grand attempt at love
But also a little deflated at the end,
For love rarely ascends to the height of those vows.

So you could think as you being your long journey back,
To a life where love does not rule...
Maybe worries and money and the kids up too early
Are the things that do instead..

Of course love has its place, but who are they kidding?
Marrying today, they can't last...

As you drive back you discuss it with your wife
And begin to feel better again.
You will last, you after all are best friends,
You after all still have sex, let's never argue again you say..

She, half asleep, puts her hand on your leg,
And you think of your own wedding day
And the speech that you made, some of it still holds true,
That's the higher part of you,

We will last...
