I cried all the way to the altar,
A smile was on my face, but tears were in my heart.

Now too late, I see the damage I have done.
Oh, my darling now too late,
We can't go back and start anew ~
Now too late, I've thrown away my chance of happiness with you.

I cried all the way to the altar,
Now too late, I know that we were wrong to part.
