    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
