I can hear the highway calling
As I watch the sunrise crawling across her shoulder
This is usually good-bye
And yet those words I just can't find as hold her

She's like no other woman
That I have ever known before
And it Ain't me to see the morning sun
From this side of the door

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 gone

All those words I left behind me
Praying they would never find me and my freedom
But if they stood right here beside me
The would never recognize 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

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 gone

No, they've never built a wall this high
Or made a chain that strong
And God ain't never made a place
I felt like I belong

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 gone
