I know it's been a bad love for the both of us,
and I know I've been unkind.
Oh, but in the chapel, you held my hand,
and it was the both of us, oh just you and me,

I know I've cussed and fought against you,
but please believe I've been redeemed.
Can't you see the son of God in that window?
Oh, see him smiling, arms extended,
so full of understanding.
Yes, God.

I know I may be crying,
but honey don't get the wrong idea.
Oh, 'cause in the chapel, you held my hand,
and I knew I loved you. Yes, I love you
and I always will.
