So we lie her in the dark
With all the wrong things on fire
In sickness and in health
To be with you, just to be with you
In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
'Cause even at my best
I wanna let go
And you hold me in your arms
And all that I can feel
Is my future in your hands
And all that I can see
Is how long ever after is
It's all that I can do
To be with you, just to be with you
In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
'Cause even at my best
I wanna let go
Thought I'd lost you
Thought I'd lost you
I gave you away
Thought I'd lost you
I'm jealous of the moon
For how it moves away
'Cause in your wedding dress
To have and to hold
'Cause even at my best
I wanna let go
And I wanna be (hard to hear
On the live recording, anyone?)
And I wanna wish it all away again

    Um.. Souns like he's having second thoughts. "even at my best, i wanna let go"
    And "all that i can see is how long ever after is" sound like regrets.

    I think his so happy he married her and it's their honeymoon night. He just wants to stay with her, hold her in his arms and never let her go. He wants to stay with her forever.
