[Company:]
All the days he thought he lost her
All the nights she had that fear
All the fights and all they cost her
All of that has lead them here
All their life has gone this way so they could be here this day
On this day
And all the wrong turns on the way somehow brought them both here to this day

[Beth (Idina Menzel):]
Walking by a wedding
On East 10th near lower Broadway
In the dabbled afternoon of a not-quite-summer's day
Walking by a wedding
With the wispy waspish bridesmaids
And the whitest calla lilies in the tidiest bouquet
It must be May

[Kate:]
All the time I lost before you, all the time I left to think

[Anne:]
All the time that I'll adore you is how I know we're not too late

[Kate:]
Every hour of love delayed

[Kate and Anne:]
Doesn't mean a minute this day
On this day
And when we finally say those vows, I'll love you just as long as time allows

[Beth:]
Walking by a wedding
As the church doors tumble open
And the cousins and the colleagues stagger out into the street
Imagine your own wedding as you float on down the aisle
To the man upon the altar, who will make your life complete
Who perhaps one day you'll meet
And she will never look so beautiful, and he will never stand so still
And this day may last forever but tomorrow never will
And life will never seem so beautiful or troubles seem so far away
Where the answers be so easy, as I do and I do
This was this day

Walking by a wedding
On East 10th near lower Broadway
In the dying afternoon of a should-be-summer day
Standing there a knowing the world will never seem so lonely
As when you're walking by a wedding
And waiting
And watching
Then walking, walking away

[Man:]
Get ready for the bride and groom

[Liz:]
All the thing's I've messed up badly, all the hurt and all the shame

[Josh:]
You'd do them all again and gladly
If you knew you'd end up the same

[Liz:]
All my life is at display, all of it except for this day

[Liz and Josh:]
Oh this day

[Liz:]
And I'm a sorry sight to see, except the fact that you love me

[Liz and Josh:]
And all I lost along the way is all I had to lose to find this day
Oh this day

[All:]
This day, on this day

[Company:]
I'm amazed he somehow found her
I'm amazed that she gave in
She will lift and he will ground her
All in all, I'd say it's win-win
'Cause the first time was disaster, when out west, was Orin's wife
She'd have ditched him that much faster if Josh walked into her life
Oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
This day, oh this day
