I Do

I got a letter today
An invitation
And the writing looked like you
Hello how are you and by the way
Please RSVP I do
I thought of writing sad words of how it used to be
But I didn't want to bring you down, no I guess
the bells will ring pretty well there without me
Don't worry 'bout me baby I'll
wear the thorny crown
I will play the clown
If you think that I don't love you,
you're just wrong
And that don't matter now anyway
I couldn't bear to see you
up there with a white dress on
Here's my vow to you I'll stay away

I remember when in a lover's whisper you said
No other man would ever share
your bed
Well we both know that's not been so
And I wish I'd never let you
go now
You found a better man instead
I wish you health and wealth and a
white house on a hill and I hope you raise a family
Little boy and a little girl, a
little more joy in this little old world
Well, that'd be enough for me

Time rolls on And dreams they die
And I've thrown out the pictures I had of
you and I
And if you're ever wondering if love can be true
Well, think of me
and remember darling like I, like I do
Ole friendships fade away, love falls apart
And you've not spent a single day outside my heart
But, there's just one more dream that
I have left for you I hope you're smiling
when he turns around and says I do. . .
