Cath
She stands
With a well intentioned man

But she can't
Relax
With his hand on the the small of her back

As the flash bulbs burst
She holds a smile
Like someone would hold for it
A crying child

So everybody will ask
What became of you
Cause your heart dying fast
And you didn't know what to do

Cath
It seems
That you lived someone else's dream
In a hand-me-down wedding dress
With the things that could've been are repressed

You said your vows
And you closed the door
On so many men
Who would've loved you more

So everybody will ask
What became of you
Cause you heart was dying fast
And you didn't know what to do

The whispers that it won't last
Were walking down the pews
But if their hearts were dying that fast
They'd have done the same as you
I'd have done the same as you
