lyrics

The dawn breaks and by perfect dreams shake
sunbeams scatter up my visions
Just before I finally awake
I've forgotten that you're gone and you're holding Lucas Blake in our

Perfect white picket life
our perfect white picket life

and you're still my girl
and you're still next to me
and you're still in this house
and I didn't make you leave

But I open up my cloudy eyes
and it's not that you're gone that surprised me
but I'd forgotten that you'd left at all
and I was expecting you to be there on my left side
and I was expecting you to be under my right thigh
and I'd forgot that last night, you said goodbye
and you left

and you're not my girl
and you're not next to me
and you're not in this house
cause I made you leave
and you're gone

and all of the sudden you're screaming again
and all of the sudden you're crying again
and your brother is pushing me out the door again
and I'm reliving every second

and i'm realizing you're not here again
and i'm realizing you're not even near me again
and I'm reliving every second
and I'm bawling my eyes out in the car again
and I'm reliving every second
and I'm trying to smoke through the beers again
and I'm trying to drink through the tears again
but I'm reliving every second
yeah I'm reliving every second

That you're not my girl
That you're not next to me
That you're not in this house
Cause I made you leave

No you're not my girl
and you're not next to me
and you're not in this house
Cause I made you leave

And you're gone
