With this ring i thee wed
With this ring i promise to be faithful and true.
What happened to the vows we said?
What happened to our words being our bond?
What happened to being faithful?
Wearing that ring became a chore
That ring became the yoke
The burden that represented our problems
Removing it made us forget us.
It made us lie that we are free
Free to do as we please
Free to lie and sleep around
We put it in the draw and forget us
Forgot what we meant to each other
Forgot our vows to each other
Forgot our love for each other.
Why are you looking at your finger now?
Do you feel guilty now?
Oh please tell me another
Don't hate me
Hate the deed that made you take off that ring.
