– my brother’s wedding –

Strangers in white…

at the edge of the year…

catch me in spirit…

if my body’s not here.

Was it a great night, sewn from a grand day?

Plucking petals from ev’ry bouquet…

a toast to the newlyweds on this

wedding day.

Papa don’t preach…

at the edge of the night…

no phone to hear it…

out of mind without sight.

Is she a great girl, or should I say dame?

Made of silk in the dress that was made…

a toast to the newlyweds on this

wedding day.

Drink for the new life you’ve already won,

Bonnie and Clyde with all your smoking guns.

Sip for the new road you two will tread hard,

Jay-Z and Queen Bey with each 16 bars.

Drink for my brother whom I used to know,

letting cards fall some two years ago.

Please get me drunk… please get me wasted; the

bond of  matrimony I swear I can’t face it! These…

strangers in white…

at the edge of the year…

gold bands, you wear it…

so strong and sincere.

Was it a great night, sewn from a grand day?

Uninvited in some type of way…

a toast to the newlyweds on this

wedding day.
