The Lyrics To Jed's Proposal Song On 'The Bachelorette' Finale Will Make You Cringe
Hannah's season of The Bachelorette was unconventional in a lot of ways. From the beginning she made it clear she would be a "real" and relatable Bachelorette, and most of her season was filled with a singular drama, thanks to Luke P. However, it seemed Hannah would still get her standard Bachelorette happy ending in the season finale. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. After she chose Jed, Hannah discovered he had lied to her about his past, and she broke things off. Now that their relationship is over, many moments from their relationship are pretty cringeworthy in retrospect. The lyrics to Jed's proposal song on The Bachelorette finale are especially crushing now that fans know what happened to their relationship.
It's no secret Jed is a musician. He made his profession known right from the get-go when he pulled out his guitar during night one in the Bachelor Mansion. During their first one-on-one date, Jed revealed to Hannah that he originally tried out for The Bachelorette in order to use the show as a platform for his music career. So it wasn't a surprise to anyone when Jed arrived to propose to Hannah with a guitar in his hand.
Jed sang multiple times during this season of The Bachelorette, including that time he and Hannah wrote a song together on his hometown date. For the proposal, he pulled out a brand-new song for this special moment between them. This proposal song is all about Hannah's long journey to find love, and how she and Jed were always meant to be. Here are the lyrics:
After all that you've been through
And those times you wish you knew who was on the other side of all those restless nights
We always knew, it's me and you
Time stands still for us
It's heaven more than once
And every time we're holding hands and dancing in the sun
Baby, time stands still for us
The lyrics sound like they offer a sweet sentiment... until you remember how Jed reportedly had a girlfriend while he was on The Bachelorette. As it was revealed in the finale, according to Jed, he and his ex were never an official couple. But even if that was the case (and the evidence on that is kind of stacked against him), it's hard to believe Jed "always knew" he would be with Hannah in the end if he also was dating someone else.
It's especially hard to read the lyrics to Jed's song, which acknowledges all that Hannah has been through, and now know he put her through even more.
When Hannah confronted Jed about his lies during the finale, she said:
Nothing is ever like how you plan it to be, but I just feel like this experience has been taken away from me because I didn’t know all the details. I was being told half-truths and lies and you wanted me to have clarity and clarity means truth. You got to see all of me, I didn’t get to see all of you.
Hannah broke off their engagement, and she probably won't be listening to Jed's music again any time soon.
