A tricky sentiment to express, it took me three years to find the right words.

Originally released in 2014 as a b-side for "Love is a Bad Dream" - this is a different take and a completely new (killer) mix by my buddy Jeff Dean



Well, the feeling’s right
But the timing wrong
i’d love to be your knight
But my armor’s all gone

I'm a nervous wreck
Thinking you might leave
I'll keep my fears in check
And hope you’ll forgive me

I'll speak these vows a thousand times
At the end of days I'll know I've wasted your time
So please, i'm begging you…

Don't marry me
Please don't marry me

I’m barely half a man
I’m falling off the shelf
What am i doing?
Don’t even know myself

All my luck in life
Ran out it’s gone
For you to be my wife
Would be oh so wrong

It's been awhile, so I propose
Let's just forget it all, I’ll leave you alone
So please, i'm begging you…

Don't marry me
Please don't marry me

Though it might be true that without you I can’t breathe
Please don’t marry me
