I can hear That highway calling As I watch the sunrise Crawling across her shoulder This is usually goodbye And yet those words I just can't find here As I hold her She's like no other woman That I have known before And it ain't me to See the morning sun From this side of the door
[CHORUS:] Why ain't I running? Why ain't I gone? How does she hold me Without holding on? In love or a fight She's stronger than strong Something's not right If there ain't nothing wrong It's got me wondering Why ain't I running? Why ain't I gona?
All those words I left behind me Praying they would never Find me and my freedom But if they stood Right here beside me They would never recognise me For all that she's done
Once happiness was only Whenever I was on my own So now why do I feel lonely Any time that I'm alone
No, they've never built A wall that high Or made a chain that strong And God ain't never Made a place I felt like I belong
