COUPLE:: You are cordially invited
to send along
though there’s been some complications,
we belong one to the other
and in light of past history,
it was a private ceremony
with no songs, no grim procession
No flowers and no cake,
just a witness and the magistrate
no we don’t need your blessings now
JAKE: My friends they say how can I stay with all the hell you’ve put me through.
It gives me pause I know she’s caused me misery, it’s true
But now I see no one can cause me misery...
COUPLE: quite like you
And we’re united
As one to spend
Our lives together learning
If our love is worth the pain it’s sure to give.
