"Wedding Dress" as written by Mark Weinberg and Matt / Nathanson....
So we lie here in the dark
All the wrong things on fire
In sickness and in health
To be with you, just to be with you

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
Even at my best
I wanna let go

And you hold me in your arms
And all that I can see
Is my future in your hands
And all that I can feel
Is how long ever after is
It's all that I can do
To be with you, just to be with you

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
And even at my best
I wanna let go

Thought I lost you
Thought I lost you, I gave you away
Thought I lost you
Been jealous of the moon
For how it moves the waves

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
Even at my best
I wanna let go

And I want to be somebody else now
And I want to thicken my skin
And I want to wish it all, just wish it all away again, again, again

And I want to be somebody else
And I want to be holding you in
And I want to be missing you, love, missing you, love
With all that I have left to give, to give, to give

    General CommentI actually saw Matt in concert last night. Seeing the artist in person singing the song helps to decipher the meaning.

    I believe it's one of two things. Either he realizes on his wedding day that this isn't the woman he is supposed to marry, or, he has trouble with commitment and even though he's "at [his] best" he is afraid of the commitment. He either wants to wish away the fear, or just be somebody else at that moment.

    After seeing him in concert, I'm leaning more towards the latter meaning.
