I heard a choir singing.
I saw my love walk down the aisle.
On her finger, he placed a ring, oh, oh.

I saw them holding hands

and all I could do was cry.

And now the wedding is over,
rice has been thrown over their heads.
For them, life has just begun but mine is at an end

Oh.  All I could do, all I could do was cry.
All I could do was cry.
I was losing the man that I loved,
And all I could do was cry.
