Wonder how long it will take. 
For this heart of mine to break 
There's I watch you walk away. 
This was to be our wedding day.

Might as well throw it away. 
With my dreams of wedding day. 

To hold you in my arms again. 
I watched my whole world fade away. 
On this our wedding day. 
Who was right and who was wrong, 
Makes no difference when you're all alone. 
As I watch you walk away. 
Goodbye darling, goodbye wedding day.
