    Saw an old friend on the street She said today’s your wedding My heart stopped The tears dropped Saw my whole life pass me by I had to see you, baby I never ran so fast before I rushed inside the chapel door You were waitin’ all alone You turned around and heard me call Congratulations I thought it would have been me Standin’ here with you Congratulations I hope you’re happy ‘Cause as long as I can breathe You’ll always be the one for me, oh, oh Why was I the last to know I thought that we were special My soul shakes My heart breaks As I turn and walk away I can’t believe it’s over We never really said goodbye Thought we’d give it one more try Felt our love was here to stay And now today’s your wedding day Congratulations I thought it would have been me Standin’ here with you Congratulations I hope you’re happy Brought the wishes, baby Oh...oh...tonight you and me Because you ??? I-I thought it should have been me, oh...oh...oh... But as long as I can breathe You’ll always be

    o.m.g. exactly 20 years ago this song was a staple on r&b radio. summer 1989...just before janet jackson shut it down for all other r&b females lol. man this song brings back so many memories. it's hard to fathom a 16 year old dude from the bronx brought to tears by this song but that's exactly what was going on for me. this tearjerker came just 8 or 9 months after karyn white's superwoman and resonated with so many on r&b/pop radio. vesta williams eventually took congratulations top 5 on the r&b chart after several months but it was worth the wait to see everyone come aboard. this is a JNez hall of fame slow jam right up there with michel'le's something in my heart & lisa fischer's how can i ease the pain. get in...or get back in. class of 89/90 stand up
