lyrics

she believes in god, you believe in a bottle
I believe I'll steady myself where I can
she says her prayers, I prepare a confession
honey, you've got to choose between two promised lands
and I know this
oh, it's always been this way
you think that I didn't notice

but just give me your now
we're living in some kind of heaven anyhow
please, just give me your now

she slips into pews as I slip out of your bedroom,
head to the kitchen, and break a few eggs in the pan
you come downstairs, tell me you've quit drinking
'cause you're saving up to put a gem on her hand
and I know this
oh, it's always been this way
you think that I didn't notice

[chorus]

she picks a date and her bridesmaids dresses
looks like I'll be spending a day done up in blue
you catch my eye as she walks down the aisle
I'm reminded I was never walking towards you
we both know this
oh, it's always been this way
I hope she doesn't notice

[chorus]
