Lyrics

Nobody gets married anymore
an old-fashioned romance these days
is just not fashionable

And all the magazines and TV screens
say it shouldn’t be a chore
so nobody gets married anymore

All the fairy tales you heard were lies
Prince Charming and Cinderella,
they had their first fight

And you should have seen the look she gave him
when he asked if she’d scrub the floor,
yeah, nobody gets married anymore

But I believe in a holding hand
and I believe a ring should mean something
when it’s a golden band
And they say people can’t stay in love,
but I don’t think that’s so
Yeah, but nobody gets married anymore

The preacher at the grave holds up a sign
thanking God for more dead soldiers
while a mother stands and cries

And the righteous rage like animals
at those who say we’re nothing more
because nobody lives for Jesus anymore

Yeah, nobody lives for Jesus anymore
we put him high up in the sky on a twenty foot billboard
and we preach and pray from marble halls
while our streets collect the poor
because nobody lives for Jesus anymore

But I believe in a nail-pierced hand
and I read that he said the Kingdom of God
is in each and every man
and if we lived the way he told us to
we’d never go to war
but nobody lives for Jesus anymore

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

My mom and dad have been married a while
she likes to throw everything away
and he puts things in piles

She remembers their first date,
he showed up barefoot at her front door,
yeah, but nobody gets married anymore

Nobody gets married, nobody gets married

Nobody gets married anymore.
