This Day / Walking By A Wedding Lyrics
[Wedding Party:]
Oh oh oh
Hey
Oh oh oh hey
All the days he thought he lost her
All the nights she had that fear
All the fights and all they cost her
All of that has led them here
All their life has gone this way
So they could be here this day
Oh this day

And all the wrong turns on the way
Somehow brought them both here to this day

[Beth:]
Walking by a wedding
On East Tenth, near lower Broadway
In the dappled afternoon
Of a not-quite-summer's day

Walking by a wedding
With the wispy, waspish bridesmaids
With the whitest calla lilies
In the tidiest bouquet
It must be May

[Kate:]
All the time I lost before you
All the time I left to fate

[Anne:]
All the time that I'll adore you
Is how I know we're not too late

[Kate:]
Ev'ry hour of love's delay

[Kate & Anne:]
Doesn't mean a minute this day
Oh this day
And when we finally say those vows
I'll love you just as long as time allows

[Beth:]
Walking by a wedding
As the church doors tumble open
And the cousins and the colleagues
Stagger out into the street

You imagine your own wedding
As you float on down the aisle
To the man up on the altar
Who will make your life complete
Who perhaps someday you'll meet

And she will never look so beautiful
And he will never stand so still
And this day may last forever
But tomorrow never will

And life will never seem so beautiful
Or troubles seem so far away
Or the answers be so easy
As "I do"
Ans "I do"
This once
This day

Walking by a wedding
On East Tenth, near lower Broadway
In the dying afternoon
Of a should-be-summer day

Standing there and knowing
The world will never seem so lonely
As when you're walking by a wedding
And waiting
And watching
Then walking, walking away

[Photographer:]
Get ready for the bride and groom

[Liz:]
All the things I messed up badly
All the hurt and all the shame

[Josh:]
You'd do 'em all again, and gladly
If you knew it'd end up the same

[Liz:]
All my life a sad display
All of it, except for this day

[Liz & Josh:]
Oh, this day

[Liz:]
And I'm a sorry sight to see
Except the fact that you love me

[Liz & Josh:]
And all I lost along the way
Is all I had to lose to find this day
Oh, this day

[All:]
This day
Oh, this day

[Wedding Party:]
I'm amazed he somehow found her
I'm amazed that she gave in
She will lift and he will ground her
All in all, I'd say it's a win-win

'Cause her first time was disaster
Way out West as Oren's wife
She'd'a ditched him that much faster
If Josh walked into her life
Oh, this day

This day
Oh, this day

Oh oh oh
This day
Oh, this day

Oh oh oh
This day
Oh, this day
