Wedding Dress

I heard this song years ago, but in the last few days I've rediscovered it for some reason

"Wedding Dress" is off Derek Webb's 2003 album, She Must and Shall Go Free (the whole disc is amazing, I highly recommend buying/downloading it)

I can't really explain why this song is speaking so profoundly to me right now. I just get the feeling that I got when I read Sarah Miles' first book, Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion. It's like I saw what real Christianity is for the first time and I realize that what I've been fed (and subsequently fed to others) is severely lacking.

Maybe some of you can put it into words better than I can. What is it that makes this song so powerful?
