Song 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.

Really sad. Dead serious. But it's a really good song. And I also reccomend it.

i absolutely love this song =]

made me cry the first time i heard it. and the second time....

and i'm not the type of person who generally cries from a song. especially not the first time she hears it.

anyways, i strongly recommend listening to it. its amazing!
