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 with 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

    All i could do is cry represents a time of not having any control over a situation, so all you can do at that time is cry. At the end of the day this is what brings you comfort.
