I Don't Want to Be a Bride - Vanessa Carlton

I like your company, got a fresh philosophy
Never knew such a gentleman
You can take me on a cheap vacation
I don't want to have expectations
Cuz you could be the end of me

And I don't need a house on a hill
A swing on a tree, a grandfather clock
Porcelain for tea, a garden with rose and jasmine

Gonna get drunk on a bottle of wine
A better way to pass the time
Forever by your side

But I don't wanna be a bride
Apologies to your mother
I want to be your girl
And spend this life with you
But I don't wanna wear white
You know it's too late for that
Can't we keep the ever after?
Could it be?

Don't need no golden ring
It'd be no match for the love you bring
From London to Tennessee
We could catch a train to another life
On a whim under the moonlight
I promise you, will you promise me?

Our last names on a wooden sign
Arm in arm where the river starts to wind
Forever by your side

But I don't wanna be a bride
Apologies to each other
I want to be your girl
And spend this life with you
But I don't wanna wear white
Oh, you know it's too late for that
But can't we keep the ever after?
Oh, could it be just you and me?

Ah, ah, ah...

We will live like kings under lavender skies, skies
We will live like kings under lavender skies, skies

We built a poem, we kept a rhyme
Wrapped our love in golden twine
We wrote, we wrote a legacy
Just you and me
