Tom on Comfort Wedding songs for 2nd time around! (30) Lyr Add: OFF-WHITE (Bill Morrissey) 12 Jul 99


Well congratulations on getting all that settled. And I've tracked down the lyrics to the Bill Morrissey song that I mentioned earlier. So even if you don't use it (and since I don't know how to post the music to it, it'll be hard for you to), here are the words, 'cause I think they're rather sweet.

It's in a waltz time:

OFF-WHITE

We'll invite our families
And some of our friends
And maybe they'll even throw rice
And we'll have us a party
Then get out of town
And not listen to any advice

We both feel so new
And this time we know
We'll never have any regrets
And we'll hire us a band
That won't play "Proud Mary"
No matter how late it gets

(refrain)
Yes we'll hire us a band
This time around
That plays nothing but our requests
Just me in my suit
While I waltz you around
And you in your off-white dress

We both were married
We both were young
We both have made our mistakes
We know how it feels
Both when love is real
And when a heart truly breaks

So take care of the food
I'll find us a band
And together we'll rent us a hall
Maybe you weren't my first
The way I wasn't yours
But the last love is the sweetest of all

(refrain...)

(On his "Inside" album)

Y'all have a lovely time, now, for sure.

--Tom
