Always the bridesmaid, never the bride (well, now she is). Not very "PC" but simple and heartfelt.

From the album Find Me.

Happy wasn't married, engaged or involved when she wrote this. She's now married to musician Bob Muller so this song doesn't apply to her anymore, but then, neither do all the songs about abuse and suicidal thoughts. It's where she was at the time.

The Chosen One

She walked down the aisle
with all eyes on her
And she glowed
Someone chose her above all other
women they had known
I can only wonder what it must be like to be
So perfect in a lover's eyes
The only one they see

Well, it’s never been me
The Chosen One
It’s never been me
If ever I see
A Chosen One
I feel ugly

I have never had a symbol
a vow or declaration
Instead I seem to inspire
practical consideration
It’s difficult to say just what it is I think I‘ve missed
It’s only One Day in a white dress
with a guest list

But, it’s never been me
The Chosen One
It’s never been me
If ever I see
A Chosen One
I feel ugly

It’s in every picture,
His eyes intently fixed on her, and
It plays on my need to be anything
To anyone

Everybody sees me, as a solitary entity
But I long to be important
to somebody

It’s a love of fairy tales that
Drives this guilty wish
To walk serenely in front of family
to collect my kiss

And though this notion is as flawed as any I have learned
I’d like to think that, like the others, it's something I deserve

But, it’s never been me
the Chosen One
It’s never been me
Whenever ever I see
A Chosen One
I feel ugly

If ever I be
The Chosen One
If Ever I be
The Summer breeze is inconstant, I'm ever so lonely
Will ever I be
A Chosen One
Will ever I be?
