Lyrics: Wedding Dress by Derek Webb

The two words in brackets are substitute words that I put in just in case.

~

If you could love me as a wife

and for my wedding gift, your life.

Should that be all I’d ever need,

or is there more I’m looking for?

~

And should I read between the lines,

and look for blessings in disguise?

To make me handsome, rich, and wise

Is that really what you want?

~

Chorus:

I am [sinful] I do confess.

I put you on just like a wedding dress

and I run down the aisle,

and I run down the aisle.

I’m a prodigal with no way home.

I put you on just like a ring of gold

and I run down the aisle to you.

~

So could you love this [sinful] child?

Though I don’t trust you to provide.

With one hand in a pot of gold

and with the other in your side.

~

I am so easily satisfied

by the call of lovers so less wild

that I would take a little cash

Over your very flesh and blood.

~

Chorus

~

Because money can not buy

a husband’s jealous eye,

When you have knowingly deceived his wife.

~

Chorus
