Anywhere Else But Here

INTRO
VERSE
I walk into the bar you turn your head
And I hear what you’re thinking without one word being said
As I make my way across the room you tell your friends it’s time to move
And my heart drops in my chest with every step

LIFT
I don’t have a clue the reason why
You never even took the time to say goodbye

CHORUS
One day love was so alive
The next day it was like I died
Everything about the man I am
Went out the window when that door slammed
If I could be anywhere else but here—I’d be there

VERSE
Then you turn and kiss someone who we both know
Or at least I did until the moment his two lips met yours
I lean against the bar to catch my breath—stunned I struggle to steady myself
Oh, the saddest role in life is a fool

Who finally understands the reason why
You never even took the time to say goodbye

(REPEAT CHORUS)
(INSTRUMENTAL)

BRIDGE
It hurts so much when the one you love betrays you in that way
But when a friend you trust is why there’s no us
It’s a different kind of pain

REPEAT CHORUS (Breakdown on first 3 lines)

Yeah, if I could be anywhere else but here—I’d be there
