Always a bridesmaid, never a bride — 'Immer eine Brautjungfer, nie eine Braut' - so kennzeichnet man jemanden, der über eine Nebenrolle nie hinauskommt.

"Always a bridesmaid, never a bride" in lyrics

They've been wrong before

They say you're a frog prince swollen with pride
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride
Getting confused in Santa Cruz
Living in a dream
