Heard the front door slam
Lying in our bed 'bout 8am
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 bare
These vows are the chains we hide

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

[Chorus:]
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 to us
Oh, what happened

This past month's been hell
With gnashing teeth and brimstone fire
Furious flames have filled the rooms
Of this little house of ours
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

We've been going to church
Still it feels like things keep getting worse
Lord, help us

Chorus

She came home late last night
With tear stained rings around her eyes
Then 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 to us
