Lyric "Shotgun Wedding"
Ten years out of high school still no idea what to do
You took him home from a nightclub he took a nightclub to you
Now i watch from the window too guilty to scream
My feet are like steel i might be in a dream

Well every time i see you you look bigger than you did the day before
And even though i know it's not my fault i wish it was
I can only ride the elevator all night long from floor to floor
And i can only stand outside your window in the dust

So how about a shotgun wedding? what about your dignity?
What about a different setting? what about me?
All your daddy's wishes honored all of that security
How about a shotgun wedding? what about me?


I guess i'm a loner some call me a freak
I saw you in the hallway too guilty to speak
Now i sleep in the daytime and i sleep on the floor
I dial your number and i knock on your door

But every time i hear your voice or footsteps i get frozen in my place
And i have to struggle for the courage just to run
I can see the eyes of all the ones that left you glowing in your face
And i just wanna help you with this life that you've begun

So how about a shotgun wedding? what about your dignity?
What about a different setting? what about me?
All your daddy's wishes honored all of that security
What about a shotgun wedding? what about me?
What about a shotgun wedding? what about me?
