lyrics

Everybody save the date
Coz in the month of May he gonna marry the love of his life
It was the last beat of her heart, when death had done them part,
He said, "Gonna' make this corpse my bride"
Wedding bells are ringing
And the maid of honour's singing

Oh the bride is dead, her soul is gone
The bride is dead, but love carries on
It's like a miracle her wedding's a funeral
Her man gonna drink and laugh he said
Everybody raise a glass, the bride is dead

It was easier I guess
Fitting in her wedding dress coz she hadn't eaten for a couple weeks
She's old as she is new,
She's borrowed and she's blue so we used a lot of blush on her cheeks
The best man's got the ring and
It's beautiful, the only thing is

Oh the bride is dead, her soul is gone
The bride is dead, but love carries on
It's like a miracle her wedding's a funeral
Her man gonna drink and laugh he said
Everybody raise a glass, the bride is dead

You could never break your heart
As sure as the night will fall
You could never break her heart
You got the purest love of them all

A hush fell on the room
The preacher asked the groom, "Do you take this woman as your wife?"
He said, "I do, I did, I probably should've years ago. It moves too fast, this goddamn life"
You can't chase forever
It only lasts while you're together

Oh the bride is dead, her soul is gone
The bride is dead, but love carries on
It's like a miracle her wedding's a funeral
Her man gonna drink and laugh he said
Everybody raise a glass, the bride is dead
