The heat from my car

Is now just from the engine.

The soul that once was there's

Already gone.

.

The passenger seat,

The place you once resided,

Feels about as empty

As your tomb.

.

Once upon a time,

You were there beside me.

Not anymore.

Once upon a dream,

I thought you were staying

To be close to me.

.

The heat from my truck

Is now just from the coffee

The person that's not you

Brought here to drink.

.

They sit in your spot,

The place you once resided.

The emptiness I feel

Comes from within now.

.

Once upon a time,

You were there next to me.

Not anymore.

Once upon a dream,

You told me, "I'm staying.

Believe in me."

.

Now I don't' know what to think.

I don't know what to drink.

The coffee that they had

has left a stain.

.

I can't believe in you.

I know it wasn't true

That you used to haunt my car

Deep in the night.

.

Once upon a time,

You were there beside me.

Not anymore.

Once upon a dream,

I gave up the hope that

You'd stay for me.

.

Now I know you're in the ground,

Can't listen to the sound

Of your child saying,

"Daddy, I'm glad you're gone."
