We didn't get far that night
But I knew right then and there
As I was laying across your head

With a fresh coat on the ground
Where we found a little cove to hide in
Into the back of the car, again confiding
And the snow grew up its blinks
And we'll never falter like the frozen lakes
And we came back a circle
And let the black night point us north

Only a bride will I be
Only a bride will I see
Only a bride will I be
Only a bride

Only a bride will I be
Only a bride will I see
Only a bride will I be
Only a bride
