Well she swept through the church like a sweet Sunday prayer.
While the choir sang "Son of Heaven", and the groom just walked on air.
I was killing time with Jesus when the wedding bells began.
And I saw the most beautiful woman getting married to a handsome man.

She walked like a mystery. And she passed like summer rain.
And she said "I do" like an angel. But I never knew her name.
Oh the congregation gathered, but in darkness I remained.
In love with the bride of a handsome man - but I never knew her name.

In the shadow of the holy - oh, I heard my tell-tale heart.
Whisper words that never reached her as her vows were made at last.
Oh, the preacher with his blessing pronounced them man and wife.
And I saw the most beautiful woman make a promise to be kept for life.

She walked like a mystery. And she passed like summer rain.
And she said "I do" like an angel. But I never knew her name.
Oh the congregation gathered, but in darkness I remained.
In love with the bride of a handsome man - but I never knew her name.

(instrumental)

And she walked like a mystery. And she passed like summer rain.
And she said "I do" like an angel. But I never knew her name.
Oh the congregation gathered, but in darkness I remained.
In love with the bride of a handsome man - but I never knew her name.

I never knew her name.
I never knew her name.
I never knew her name.
