I’m going to get married today
The chapel is full of flowers and sage
He’ll lift up my veil and he will say
"Are you sure that you love me?
Are you sure you can wait?"

He cuts into the wedding cake
And licks the frosting off the blade
He cuts into our palms
Drops our blood into the lake
We stand on the bridge
And give ourselves away

I can be good, I can be true
You know I don’t love anyone
But I love you

I can be good, I can be true
You know I don’t love anyone
But I love you

I’m going to get married today
The chapel is full of
Crosses and bouquets
We pray to the wax bride and
Her violet varicose veins
Kiss me with forever where
Only death remains

I can be good, I can be true
You know I don’t love anyone
But I love you

I can be good, I can be true
You know I don’t love anyone
But I love you

I’m going to get married today
So please don’t touch me
Please stay away
I know I'm not good,
I’ve never been true
But you know that I love him
And I don’t love you

    My InterpretationSo I kind of think the song is about her trying to convince herself that she can be faithful and not self-destruct and self-sabotage this relationship, that she finds some bliss in.

    The last verse shows us just how she trying to be faithful for once. It is a verse dedicated towards the guy she is cheating with. The verse is even whispered rather the sang at a normal pace (which is established throughout the song).

    I think it's a hauntingly beautiful song about the past and the future. How we all struggle with commitment and how sometimes we fall in love with someone who is too good for us... So we try and self destruct by cheating.
