Just A Dream Lyrics

It was two weeks after the day she turned 18
All dressed in white, goin? to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat
Six pins in her shoe, somethin? borrowed, somethin? blue

And when the church doors opened up wide
She put her veil down, tryin? 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 hands

Baby, why'd you leave me? Why'd you have to go?
I was countin? on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe

It's like I'm lookin? from a distance, standin? in the background
Everybody's sayin?, he's not comin? home now
This can't be happenin? 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, well, 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 countin? on forever, now I'll never know
I can't even breathe

It's like I'm lookin? from a distance, standin? in the background
Everybody's sayin?, he's not comin? home now
This can't be happenin? to me, this is just a dream

Ooh, baby, why'd you leave me? Why'd you have to go?
I was countin? on forever, now I'll never know
Oh, I'll never know

It's like I'm lookin? from a distance, standin? in the background
Everybody's sayin?, he's not comin? home now
This can't be happenin? to me, this is just a dream

Oh, this is just a dream
It?s 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.
