Elton John - "I Never Knew Her Name" lyrics

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

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

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
