Ron Pope A Wedding In Connecticut Lyrics

Last updated: 10/29/2012 08:48:40 AM

There was a pretty girl
from some small suburb of Dallas
and she came up to New York with a dream

In the confusion and the noise
all of her beauty and her poise
turned grey like snow beside the city street

she met a boy named Steven
they made love in his apartment
n a second story walk up out in Queens

and the things she hoped to find
beneath him on that August night
was the farthest thing from her
as she dressed to leave

so she hides her eyes
says a slow goodbye
swears by the morning light, she'll be fine

at a wedding in Connecticut
the mother of the bride
they dreams about her husband who just past

as stands to give her toast
she says the only thing i know
is when you find a love thats worth it
make it last

so she chokes back the tears
and speaks of all her daughters years
thirty christmas' of memories that she keeps

and the speech was silent sweet
she kisses guests as they all leave
then heads of to her hotel room to eat

so she bides her time
and says a slow goodbye
swears by the morning light, she'll be fine

yeah she hides her eyes
though its hard some nights
she'll take her own sweet time, and she'll be fine

A welder who spent twenty years
working in an auto plant
gets late off on a thursday afternoon

and he grips the fourty-five
thats rests in the glove box when he drives
then puts the gun away and wonders what to do

so he parks in his driveway
and head against the steering wheel
and tries to think what to tell his wife

and in the kitchen, he explains
and swears they'll be okay
she says, you're the only i need in this life

so he bides his time
and says a slow goodbye
swears by the morning light, he'll be fine

yeah she hides his eyes
though its hard some nights
he'll take his own sweet time, and he'll be fine
