I heard
Church bells ring
I heard
A choir singing
I saw my love
Walk down
The aisle
On her finger
He placed a ring

Oooh, oh

I saw them
Holding hands
She was
Standing there
Wwith my man
I heard
Them promise
Til death do
Us part
Each word
Was a pain
In my heart

All i could do
Was cry
All i could do
Was cry
I was
Losing the man
That i love
And all
I could do
Was cry

And now
The wedding
Is over
Rice, rice
Has been
Thrown over
Their heads
For them life
Has just begun
But mine
Is ending

Ooh

All i could do
Was cry
All i could do
Was cry
I was losing
The man
That i love
And all
I could do
Was cry

    The song is about losing the love of your life. You are there to witness them moving on getting married to someone else. Thats when you realize what you have lost, and it brings you to tears. The overwhelmig feeling of how that cpuld have been you with that person starting a life

    This song is about her watching her man get married to another lady. She's broken and hurting. It was her man. Theres nothing she can do get him back. I love this song, the hardest thing any girl/boy would ever have to do is watch the person they love fall inlove with someone else.

    Her love is in love with somebody else getting married and she is just thinking damn.. That's my man all i can do about it is cry.. I can't make a man who has fallen in love with someone else.. Stand up.. Than fall back in love with me so all she can really do is cry and let out those feelings...
