We won a day in the studio and recorded this one. A song about not-marriage.


No father's giving of hands and then placing in mine,
I don't need you in white,
With the writing in gold and the ring shining bright,
I don't need you in white,
An aisle, an alter, the celebrant's falter,
The groomsmen, the bridesmaid,
The cake set and well made,
I stay I might go but I'll be sure to let you know,

Well pictures in albums when we're down in the doldrums won't rekindle the firelight,
I don't need you in white,
And these sacrament speeches have nothing to teach us,
you won't be my wife,
I don't need you in white,

The buck's show, the hen's night,
I'm putting up stop lights,
You're blue and I'm borrowed,
We're stealing these vows right,
You might stay you might go but just be sure to let me know,

With your sweet lips a god's kiss,
The angels were right,
But I need you tonight, I need you tonight.
