  • Here we are
    What is left of a husband and a wife
    With four good kids
    Who have a way of getting on with their lives
    And i'm not old but i'm gettin' a whole lot older everyday
    It's too late to keep from goin' crazy
    I've got to get away

    chorus:
    The reasons that i can't stay
    Don't have a thing to do with bein' in love
    And i understand that lovin' a man
    Shouldn't have to be this rough
    And you ain't the only one
    Who feels like this world's left you far behind
    I don't know why you gotta be
    Angry all the time

    Our boys are strong now
    The spittin' image of you when you were young
    I hope someday they can see past what you have become
    And i remember everytime I said I'd never leave
    But what i can't live with is memories of the way you used to be

    The reasons that I can't stay
    Don't have a thing to do with bein' in love
    And I understand that lovin' a man
    Shouldn't have to be this rough
    And you ain't the only one who feels
    Like this world's left you far behind
    I don't know why you gotta be
    Angry all the time

    Twenty years
    Have came and went since I walked out of your door
    I never quite made it back to the one I was before
    And God it hurts me
    To think of you for the light in your eyes was gone
    And sometimes I don't know why
    This old world can't leave well enough alone

    The reasons that I can't stay
    Don't have a thing to do with bein' in love
    And I understand that lovin' a man
    Shouldn't have to be this rough
    And you ain't the only one who feels
    Like this world's left you far behind
    I don't know why you gotta be
    Angry all the time
    I don't know why you gotta be
    Angry all the time
    I don't know why you gotta be

  • Anon from UsaThis isn't how anyone going through this would ever see things. It's her fault. She's angry. Stupid definition.
  • Bigtarin from Phx Az yes i been married for 31 years it is in my eyes have many different meaning"The reasons I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love." a woman scorn but yet in love they both could have an addiction wich drew them apart which then could lead to them cheating on each other i understand that loving a man shouldnt have to be so ruff saying that he tryes tp please her but the addition is to strong for both of them wich wont allow them to feel or express there love{ you aint the only one} saying that he feels the same way who feels like this world has left you far behind the distance they created but they cant figure out why she angry all the time power of addiction is a powerful thing god bless you
