When you hear the words “marry me,” you expect to hear some happy song about getting married to the one you love, feeling those butterflies in your stomach, etc. But that isn’t the case with Thomas Rhett’s “Marry Me.” So many people thought that this was going to be the song that they could play at weddings, but that is definitely not the case. This song is sad, raw, and real about the possibility of not ending up with the love of your life.
This song might just break your heart. It broke mine.
We hear love songs about getting married all the time. But when did you last hear a song about the love of your life marrying someone else?
Thomas Rhett’s song talks about how it feels when your best friend, that happens to be a girl, is getting married to someone else. It talks about how he is in love with his best friend but misses his shot because she falls in love with someone else.
I remember the night when I almost kissed her
Yeah, I kinda freaked out, we'd been friends for forever
And I always wondered if she felt the same way
When I got the invite, I knew it was too late
If that part doesn’t break your heart, then this next part will.
And I know her daddy's been dreading this day
Oh, but he don't know he ain't the only one giving her away
Thomas Rhett’s song is so raw and the complete opposite of the songs he normally writes. Most of his songs have been about his wife Lauren and he even said that “Marry Me” could have been his life had he not told her how he felt.
What some people don’t know is that Thomas and Lauren both almost ended up with other people had Thomas not said anything about how he had felt about her.
TR called this song a “what if” song in an interview, saying that this could have been his life if he didn’t tell Lauren how he felt about her.
Knowing that makes it even sadder.
In the song, he talks about how he wouldn’t interrupt her wedding because he wants the best for her even though it breaks his heart. Cue the water works.
She got on her dress now, welcoming the guests now
I could try to find her, get it off of my chest now
But I ain't gonna mess it up, so I'll wish her the best now
And if you haven’t seen the music video, you need to. It might just break your heart.
