Today, he told he that he loved her
Put a ring around her finger
And promised her forever, together.

Today, she smiled for all the pictures
And he was right there with her
Making all the memories without me
And it hurts to say this out loud
Looks like she's really gone now

Chorus
Today, is the happiest day of her life
I should be happy for her today
So tell me why are these tears in my eyes?
I know I should be happy for her
But I've lost everything
I've lost everything I've ever wanted today

Today, I thought about the moment I could have said I loved her
And promised her forever together
Today, today it really hit me
That she don't really miss me
She's found a new beginning
And I'm wishing I had one more chance
God knows it's too late for that

Repeat chorus

Today, is the happiest day of her life
I should be happy for her
But I've lost everything
I've lost everything I've ever wanted
Today, he told he that he loved her
Put a ring around her finger

    Ok, so from what i understand is that the lyrics is not about an ex boyfriend having a
    pity party because he didn't tell his girl he loved her & she got tired of waiting around for him... Sounds like it though... However, after reading the lyrics again, and perhaps i'm wrong maybe it's about a father/daughter relationship and the dad is sad that he had to give his little girl away?

    This is a sad love story. A man and a woman love eachother but they're at different points in their lives. She wants more, but he doesn't at the time and she ends up eventually finding her "happily ever after" with another man. Her former love looks at the situation and regrets never taking the chance to marry her when he had the chance.
