The Strangest Thing - The Avett Brothers

What happened back there?
Nothing has gone like we planned
All of our dreams, they just fell by the way
The true love I once had is dead

Looking through old photographs
Pulled by a print from the past
Yeah we called it love but please don't close the book
Might not have ever been that

Forget the morningtime, I'll be asleep
My fix from last night did a number on me
Awake I'd be awful company to keep
Have your breakfast this morning alone

I'll share myself when I'm good and ready
I've got gold and I've got confetti
I'll give to you and you'll give back to me
And forever our song we will sing

The strangest thing that came to me was last night in my sleep
I dreamt you never left
I looked up to thank the moon
And saw a set of lights
A set of red tail lights

I said to myself
I thought that I would never change
but when I woke that night
The strangest thing had come to me, I finally was awake
I slept for seven years

What happened back there?
Nothing has gone like we planned
All of our dreams, they have fell by the way
The true love I once had is dead

And forever our song we will sing
