I like your company got a fresh philosophy
Never knew such a gentleman
You can take me on a cheap vacation
I don't wanna have expectations 'cause you
Could be the end of me

I don't need a house on a hill
Swing on a tree, a grandfather clock
Porcelain for tea
A garden, with rose and jasmine

Gonna get drunk on a bottle of wine
No better way to pass the time
Forever by your side

But I don't wanna be a bride
Apologies to your mother
I wanna be your girl
And spend this life with you

But I don't wanna wear white
You know it's too late for that
But can we keep the ever after?
Could it be

Don't need no golden ring
It'd be no match for the love it brings
From London to Tennessee

We could catch a train to another life
On a whim, under the moonlight
I promise you, will you promise me?

Our last names on a wooden sign
Arm in arm, where the river starts to wind
Forever by your side

But I don't wanna be a bride
Apologies to each other
I wanna be your girl
And spend this life with you

But I don't wanna wear white
You know it's too late for that
But can we keep the ever after
Oh could it be just you and me

I, I, I we will live like kings
Under lavender skies, skies
We will live like kings
Under lavender skies, skies

Built a poem, we kept a rhyme 
Wrapped our love in golden twine
We wrote, we wrote a legacy

Just you and me
Just you and me
Just like kings under lavender
Skies, skies
We will
