Just A Dream



It was two weeks after the day she turned eighteenAll dressed in whiteGoing to the church that nightShe had his box of letters in the passenger seatSixpence in a shoe, something borrowed, something blueAnd when the church doors opened up wideShe put her veil downTrying to hide the tearsOh she just couldn't believe itShe heard trumpets from the military bandAnd the flowers fell out of her hand
Baby why'd you leave meWhy'd you have to go?I was counting on forever, now I'll never knowI can't even breatheIt's like I'm looking from a distanceStanding in the backgroundEverybody's saying, he's not coming home nowThis can't be happening to meThis is just a dream
The preacher man said let us bow our heads and prayLord please lift his soul, and heal this hurtThen the congregation all stood up and sang the saddest song that she ever heardThen they handed her a folded up flagAnd she held on to all she had left of himOh, and what could have beenAnd then the guns rang one last shotAnd it felt like a bullet in her heart
Baby why'd you leave meWhy'd you have to go?I was counting on forever, now I'll never knowI can't even breatheIt's like I'm looking from a distanceStanding in the backgroundEverybody's saying, he's not coming home nowThis can't be happening to meThis is just a dream
Oh,Baby why'd you leave meWhy'd you have to go?I was counting on forever, now I'll never knowOh, now I'll never knowIt's like I'm looking from a distanceStanding in the backgroundEverybody's saying, he's not coming home nowThis can't be happening to meThis is just a dream
Oh, this is just a dreamJust a dreamYeah, Yeah
