Heard the front door slam
Lying in my bed 'bout 8 AM
She packed her bags and hit the road
Don't know if she'll be back again
I guess she's had enough
Well finally we can agree
Besides the bills, all we share these days is misery
She used to be my better half
Now she's the thorn stuck in my side
Our love is a burden we both bear
These vows are the chains we hide

I don't know where it all went wrong
What happened to our happy home

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

This past month's been hell
With gnashing teeth and brimstone fire
Furious flames have filled the rooms
Of this little house of ours
We've said a lot of things
That cut eachother to the core
She said "you're no good
Just like your daddy, that don't love you anymore"
And now I'm drinking way too much
But these days, it's all that gets me through
And sometimes I feel like this whiskey bottle
Is the one I'm married to

Oh and we've been going to church
Still it feels like things keep getting worse
Lord help us

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

She came home late last night
With tear-stained rings around her eyes
And she said "this isn't how it's supposed to be"
Then she cried "what happened to you and me?"

What happened to surprises
What happened to the compromises
What happened to the romance
What happened to holding my hand
What happened to our love
What happened, oh, to us

What happened to forever
What happened to for worse or better
What happened to our plans
What happened to the ring on your hand
What happened, what happened, what happened...
What happened to us...
