Mail Order Bride

lyrics

I can't believe it's come to this
We built a life together but now it's vanished
Just like a photo familiar but unreal
She must be someone else other than me
That's how I feel

Like I'm a mail order bride
And you're a mail order groom
Eyeing each other from across the room
Awkward and nervous
I don't know who you are
I'll never feel close
You'll keep me in the dark

Maybe it was someone else who changed you
Or maybe you were someone else all along
I suppose it could be me
Feeling so right
And being so wrong
I was so wrong

Like I'm a mail order bride
And you're a mail order groom
Eyeing each other from across the room
Mistrustful and cautious
Let nothing show
With nothing in common
Except we both wanna go

Looked good on the surface
But once it's been scratched
The damage was done
And the love never came back
It never came back
Bring him back cause I don't think
That you are the one
Bring him back
You're not the one

It's like a mail order bride
And a mail order groom
Eyeing each other from across the room
Awkward and nervous
I don't know who you are
I'll never feel close
You'll keep me in the dark

I'm a mail order bride
Your a mail order groom
Eyeing each other from across the room
Mistrustful and cautious
Let nothing show
With nothing in common
Except we both wanna go

Mail order bride
Mail order groom
That's me and you
