    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
    A six pence 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 hands

    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 us 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
    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
    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
    Just a dream
    Yeah
    Yeah

      This is the best song for my worst night mare. My boyfriend of almost 2 years has been deployed to Iraq this month. He spends 2 months in USA for training, but in a different state and then they leave for 13 months. Needless to say, this song makes me cry EVERY time I hear. Leave it to the great Carrie Underwood to sing such a fantastic song, as sad as it is

      Carrie Underwood has ALWAYS been one of my favorite artists.
      and this song is amaaaazing.
      though its terribly sad, the song itself is beautiful.
      it makes me cry, can't even sing with her because i get all choked up.
      but its a good kinda cry, if there is such a thing.
      sad songs make good songs and this is certainly one of them.

      Such an amazing song. Makes me cry everytime I listen to it, but I still insist on playing it nearly every day! I love it so much. Another great song by the amazing Carrie Underwood. I'd reccommend this song to anyone.

      i cry every time i hear this song. my best friend is in the army infantry and leaves for germany in 2 weeks...and probably won't be there a year before he goes to iraq. i am going to miss him sooooooo much...he's not even gone and i miss him. but i'm scared and i don't want this to be him because i don't know what i would do...i would die emotionally and remain a hollow carcass.
