There I was at the bus stop begging you just to stay
Can we work this out, baby we can work this out
A dust trail from a Greyhound headed for the West Coast
As I watch you leave, it's getting hard to breathe

No this ain't how it was supposed to be
You're out chasing all your dreams
Tell me where does that leave me

What about the plans that you left behind
The little white house by the railway line
The one we picked out
We even put the payment down

What about the promise that you made
To stay with me till your dying day
Said you'd never go away
Are they just things that people say?
Are they just things, baby?

The preacher stopped by the house last Tuesday
Asked if I was fine
We sat and talked a while
He tried to make me smile

But it's so hard to show my face 'round lately
In this small town
I guess they heard the news
'Bout me and you

It's 3 a.m. and I can't sleep at all
I wonder where you are tonight
And do I ever cross your mind?

What about the plans that you left behind
The little white house by the railway line
The one we picked out
We even put the payment down

What about the promise that you made
To stay with me till your dying day
Said you'd never go away
Are they just things that people say?

Well, my momma won't stop crying
She wonders what went wrong
Could I have loved a little deeper
Or did I hold on too strong?
Woah, no

What about the plans that you left behind
The little white house by the railway line
The one we picked out
We even put the payment down

What about the promise that you made
To stay with me till your dying day
Said you'd never go away
Are they just things that people say?
Woah, are they just things, baby?
Woah
