Airborne Toxic Event, The - Bride And Groom Lyrics




This city is haunted by the ghost of failure
I am one and you are one
We've spent this whole time on the run
From a lie that I told
That you closed your eyes and you chose to believe

So now you ask me for honesty
Just to take a second, breathe
I'm not good enough for you
You were never good enough to me
No one's ever good enough to be
Or have something so naïve

When I broke my hand on your car
When you told me you were leavin'
And I begged for your forgiveness
My broken fingers bleedin'
My heavy heart repeatin', afraid,
Just stay here with me

Then you took your clothes off instead
And you danced around my room
Don't worry, you said,
'Cause the end is coming soon
And we'll meet again someday
And we'll toast these stunning ruins
For the bride I'll never be
And the groom

Now I picture you like snowflakes
Like desperate pouring rain
Like the beating of the drum
In the parade of the insane
You are the whisper in my ear
When I wake and no one's here
There's just the echo of your name

So now you ask me for honesty
I close my eyes, breathe,
I'm the one who always is
So ready to leave
To be a distant memory
To be a ship disappearing in the sea

And I crashed upon your rocks
When I heard your voice singing
And I begged for your love
With my busted ears ringing
My hopeful heart repeating
You are more than the promise of the sea

Then you took your clothes off instead
And you danced around my room
Don't worry, you said,
'Cause the end is coming soon
And we'll meet again someday
And we'll toss the cursed ruins
Of the bride I'll never be
And the groom

    This is by far the best song off the new album. I had it on repeat all morning, I can't stop listening to it!

  12. Jordan Shoup

    This song is incredible live. If you ever have the chance, go see them. Don't even give it a second thought. This is one of the few bands that is better live than on an album. Incredible.

    They are amazing, every time they're here in Denver i go see them... but to be fair, most bands are better live.
