Elton John - "I Never Knew Her Name Elton John Bernie Taupin" 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

Whisper words that never reached her
Oh I heard my tell-tale heart
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
