"Wedding Cake" as written by and Damien Jurado....
You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll regret."
He's out there setting fires to
The demons in his head

Once you called it perfect love
You now call it accident
Do you sit with your photo books
Wondering where it went

It was clearly never meant to be

You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll forget."
How do you erase a ghost
Who sleeps inside your bed

Throw away your wedding rings
Give away the gown
Say goodbye to the accident
Who only brought you down

It was clearly never meant to be

You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll regret."
He's out there setting fires to
The demons in his head

Once you called it perfect love
You now call it accident
Do you sit with your photo books
Wondering where he went

It was clearly never meant to be

    General CommentI like the last track on Denison Witmer's album "Safe Away" where he take the lyrics and melody to this chorus, slows it down, and puts it to his music. Anyone heard it?

    General Commentthis is an amazing song.
    my most important relationship had come to an end, and i relied on this song to help me while breaking down.
    i listened to it on repeat for 3 hours, crying on my roof, watching the sunset, just like him and i used to every friday night for about 3 years.
    i think this song is about love and loss,
    and looking back to realize it was not all you thought it was,
    'it was clearly never meant to be'.
