Heard the front door slam
lying in my bed about 8am
she packed her bags and hit the road
dont know if she'll be back again

I guess shes had enough
well finally we can agree
besides the bills
all we share these days is the misery

She use to be my better half
now shes the thorn stuck in my side
our love is a burden
we both bear these vows or the chains we hide.

I dont know where it all went wrong
What happend to our happy home

What happend to forever
What happend to for worse or better
what happend to our plans
what happend to the ring on her hand
what happend to our love
oh what happend to us

what happend

This past month been hell
with nashing teeth and brimestone fire
furious flames have filled the room
of this little house of ours

now im drinking way to much
these days its all that gets me through
sometime i fell this whiskey bottle
is the one im married to

What happend to forever
What happend to for worse or better
what happend to our plans
what happend to the ring on her hand
what happend to our love
oh what happend to us

She came home late last night
with tear stained rings around her eyes
then she said this isnt how its suppose to be
then she cried what happend
to you and me whooaa

what happend to suprises
what happend to the comprimises
what happend to the romance
what happend to holdenin my hand
what happend to our love
what happend to us

What happend to forever
What happend to for worse or better
what happend to our plans
what happend to the ring on her hand

what happend
what happend

what happend ohhhhhh.... to us...

    General CommentI think this song is pretty clearly about a failing marriage. Both the narrator and his wife are miserable and don't quite know how they became so unhappy together (hence the title question: What Happened?)

    He's clear to point out that both he and his wife are to blame for what brought them to this point. She's insulted him and resents him while he just drinks away his problems rather than dealing with them. He doesn't know why she won't wear her ring anymore or how she could just abandon their plans for a future together. Meanwhile, she can't understand where the romance went and why he no longer is willing to meet her halfway.

    I like to think that the song ends with the two of them working things out. She shows up and finally tells him what's been going on in her head and he responds by saying what's been on his mind. And, like that they accept the fact that neither of them are happy, they don't know where it went wrong, and they don't want to be unhappy anymore.
