Just A Dream Lyrics - Carrie Underwood

Review The Song (22)



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 a 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 trumpets from the military band
And the flowers fell out of her hand

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 have been
And 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

Oh,
Baby why'd you leave me
Why'd you have to go?
I was counting on forever, now I'll never know
Oh, now 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

woken from dream | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/27/10

I first heard this song while my fiance was in Iraq...we communicated regularly but when I heard this song I had not heard from him for almost a month and half...I cried soo hard and prayed..heard from him the next day...He is home now and we are married..I got him back...But I pray every day for the other men and women overseas and the people who love them

he will never know me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/12/10

my grandpa served and then 2 weeks after he got out he was killed well i had my mom listen to this song and she broke down and said that what my grandma said....why did he leave her and now i cry when ever i hear this song

military wife | Reviewer: Jazz Hagerman | 11/3/09

This song makes me get teary eyed every time I hear it. I didn't get married that young but at 19 that's still young. My heart goes out to all the women, men, parents, siblings and friends who have to go through the pain of losing their soldier and friend. I hope I am very old and grey when I have to hear the salute for my husbands funeral.

Loved Ones | Reviewer: Lena | 5/4/09

I don't have any loved ones in the military, but my brother was just diagnosed with cancer. He's only been given a few months to live. I feel like this song is preparing me for his death. These last few months we are going to have together seem like they are "just a dream". I keep telling myself I am going to wake up soon and he will be pefectly healthy.

wow..i miss him | Reviewer: rosey | 3/26/09

wow..honestly i can say that when i first heard this song it made me cry. this song means so much to me. my dad is currently in mushada, iraq. his unit currently lost someone but thing about that was my dad was right next to the guy and it kinda makes me think it could have been anyone including my dad but the bullet chose that guy. you know when you think of the war and hear how bad it is..your just like yeah ok. but until someone tells you what really goes on over there your life and the way you look at other people in the military changes. everytime i see someone in a uniform i want to go up and thank them for protecting our country. and as for the flag part in the song..it means a lot to me because my grandpop recently died and he was in the military so he had a military funeral and watching them fold up the flag and giving it too my cousins was so sad and then when they shot the guns and played taps..it was horrible. i couldnt believe he was gone. so next time you see someone in a uniform just go up and thank them because they are risking their lives for us. so support our troops.!

thoughts | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/13/08

I dont know anyone in the army, but somehow, when i listen to this song, i can feel all the pain that other people feel. I started crying my eyes out when i first heard this song... If you watch the music video too. saddest song ever.

great song | Reviewer: Amanda Brady | 11/5/08

my fiance kasey is at basic for the army as we speak. he left sep. 8th and i heard this song for the first time about two weeks after he left. this song is my worst fear ever. i've written him everyday since he left (his request) and i told him that i heard this new song by carrie underwood. i love this song but i break down inside and i told him i'd send him the lyrics. i just worry that he'll leave after ait for iraq. my best friend ships over there for his second tour dec. 1. we all know someone who's fought for our country and not made it home, let this be a song of rememberance for their families.

heart broken. | Reviewer: autumn | 11/3/08

so its not the military aspect of hte song that gets me. what happened was when my ex fiance, got sent to jail, i didnt hear from him for a week. his friend finally called me, and told me waht happened and he would be out hte next day. that day i told myself if he ever just ups and disappears on me agian, im gonna break up with him. because i cried for a week straight wondering if he was alive, where he was. then the day after he got out of jail, he disappeared again. i couldnt take it, i cried harder than did before, and he and i were counting on forever. but its not gonna happen now, because i dont need someone thats gonna be sent to jail every other week and then disappear on me. its too hard. i cant emotionally handle it. so i listened to his song, and the chorus got me. i was counting on forever, and now ill never know. when i cried i couldnt breath. i asked myself. baby. why did you leave me, why did you have to go.... this song makes me cry every time i hear it. but i love it. its beautiful...

Wow | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/23/08

I am also in love with a man in the Air Force. He was going into the Marines but now he has changed his mind to the Air Force. It scares me to death, but I would never stand in his way from following his dream. This is his passion, and I fully support him. However, I feel very unstable; I can't imagine something happening to him. I dont think I can handle it. I pray that God will take care of him.

This is reality | Reviewer: Sara Martin | 9/27/08

I am in love with a man in the Air Force. I was supposed to join, but after a knee injury left me unable to enlist, the love of my life took over my dream. He'll be stationed in Germany for 2 years, and I'll still be living in the states, going to school.. It's so hard listening to this song, because not only is he going to be over seas, my uncle is serving in Iraq at this time as well. I feel so guilty hearing this song, because I dream of him never returning, and if that ever happend, it'd be my fault for letting him join to fafill my dreams.. I pray for our troops and their safe return every day.. God bless our troops, their families, and America.

Just a Dream is Amazing | Reviewer: CarrieandTaylor lover! | 8/26/08

I recently went to a funeral for my grandpa who was in the military, and this song reminded me of that, and how while I was there I couldn't help but try to imagine what it must be like for all those people who lose a spouse in the army. I cried the first time I heard this song! It's amazing! One of my favorite lyrics right now is "It fell like a bullet in her heart," I keep all of the men and women in the military my fervent prayers! This song makes me love Carrie and her music even more!!!

just a dream | Reviewer: michelle | 8/17/08

okay so my hubby is a marine
and i heard this song
and started balling my eyes out
hes in iraq right now
due to come home in one month
but i understand the pain and its the hardest thing ever
god bless all he troops and their families and stay strong the boys are coming home soon
