Just A Dream Lyrics

It was two weeks after the day she turned 18
All dressed in white, going to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat
Sixpence in her shoe
Something borrowed, something blue
And when the church doors opened up wide
She put her veil down trying to hide the tears
Oh she just couldn't believe it
She heard the trumpets from the military band
And the flowers fell out of her hand

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

The preacher man said "let's bow our heads and pray
Lord please lift his soul and heal this hurt"
Then the congregation all stood up and sang
The saddest song, that she ever heard
And then they handed her a folded up flag
And she held on to all she had left of him
Oh and what could've been
And then the guns rang one last shot
And it felt like a bullet in her heart

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe
It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

Baby, why'd you leave me, why'd you have to go
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know, oh I'll never know

It's like I'm looking from a distance, standing in the background
Everybody's saying, he's not coming home now,
This can't be happening to me
This is just a dream

Oh this is just a dream
This is just a dream
Yeah yeah

This makes me cry all the time. But really and truly this song does not apply to her. She's only been married once and he did not die. Maybe it's just a family member or friend or someone she knows. You people would know this if y'all knew more about Carrie Underwood

This song does not apply to her. Maybe it's just about her friend or family member or just someone she knows. If y'all know this about Carrie Underwood she's only been married one time. And the man she married did not die in the military or at all really but this song makes me cry every time I listen to this it so sad but she sings epic. It reminds me of my dead step dad who died in the military. But this song is still really good.
