Just A Dream

Just A Dream

 

It was two weeks after the day she turned eighteen
All dressed in white, going to the church that night
She had his box of letters in the passenger seat
Sixpence 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
And then 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)


 

 

Every time I hear this song, I think of this poem that I wrote several years ago, based on a character in a story I was working on.
