I got a letter today
An invitation
And the writing looked like you
"Hello, how are you?
And by the way, please RSVP "I do"'
I thought of writing the sad words
Of how it used to be
But I didn't want to bring you down, no
I guess the bells ring pretty well there without me
Don't worry 'bout me baby
I'll wear the thorn of crowns
I will play the clown

You think that I don't love you
You're just wrong
That don't matter now anyway
Couldn't bear to see you up there
With the white dress on
Here's my vow to you
I'll stay away

I remember when
In a lover's whisper you said,
No other man would ever share your bed
Well we both know that's not been so
I wish I'd never let you go
Now you found a better man instead
I wish you health and wealth
And a white house on a hill
And I hope you raise a family
Little boy and a little girl
A little more joy in this little old world
Well that'll be enough for me

You think that I don't love you
You're just wrong
That don't matter anyway
Couldn't bear to see you up there
With the white dress on
Here's my vow to you
I'll stay away

Time rolls on
Dreams they die
And I've thrown out the pictures
I have of you and I
And if you're ever wondering
If love can be true
Think of me
Remember darling
Like I, like I do

Old friendships fade away
Love falls apart
And you've not spent
a single day outside my heart
But there's just one more dream
That I have left for you
I hope you're smiling when he turns around and says
I do... I do... I do
