  • I don't have to lay beside him
    Feeling so alone
    But my baby is crying for his daddy
    And asking when he's coming home

    I don't have to feel neglected
    And I'm not damaged goods anymore
    But my baby has been devastated
    Ever since he walked out that door

    I'm trading one heartbreak for another
    One kind of pain for a different kind of pain
    And I wonder if this is gonna hurt even more
    I'm finally alive but it's killing who I'm living for

    I don't have to hear his complaining
    And I don't have to curse his name
    But my darling is missing his daddy
    And he'll always have me to blame

    I'm trading one heartbreak for another
    One kind of pain for a different kind of pain
    And I wonder if this is gonna hurt even more
    I'm finally alive but it's killing who I'm living for

    I'm trading one heartbreak for another
    One kind of pain for a different kind of pain
    And I wonder if this is gonna hurt even more
    I'm finally alive but it's killing who I'm living for Writer/s: Angaleena Loletta Presley, Ashley Monroe
