lyrics

Never a bride
Never a prize
Never never say
Never never say yes
Never never say yes

Whatever it was
I wasn’t enough
Not ‘enough’ enough
Wasn’t up to snuff
Wasn’t tough enough

But was there when you needed me
(when you needed me)

That’s an awful long time
To drag someone along

Never a bride
Never a prize
Never never say
Never never say yes
Never never say yes

Now it’s too late
Now I am too old
Too retraumatized
To be legitimized
To be so comely yet so wasted
(comely yet so wasted)

Consummation
A consolation prize
Am I adult enough
Cos I can’t be touched
So I can’t check off
That sacrament?

I’m impure
so my
White dress is stained
in blood

They don’t care
They don’t care
How I got there

Never a bride
Never a prize
Never never say
Never never say yes
Never never say yes

(never your bride)
(never your prize
(never never say)
(never never)
(never never)

Never your bride
Never your prize
Never never
