When in Nashville, write a stupid country song.


Music & Lyrics by Keith “Plex” Barnhart

Garth was on the radio
Singin’ bout the Dance
How love is always worthy
How we should take a chance

“Those are good words to live by”
You’d tell me time again
We talked all through the evenin’
We tried to make amends

By the mornin' hours
Very little has gone your way
I’m still alone, still afraid
Of the things I can’t say

Why oh why could I never say "I love you"?
Who oh why, can't I give of myself?
If we could make it last, I won't have to ask,
(I thought our time would last, but I'm left to ask,)←2nd Chorus line
(But you have gone away, and I'm left to say)← 3rd Chorus line
How can I miss The Love I've Never Had?
How could I miss The Love I've Never Had?

For many lonely years
We walked that great divide
Your heart was always open
Yet, I never looked inside

I can’t say you didn’t warn me
You’d be leaving me someday
Something’s less than nothing
When you learn it too late

Everybody knows you get what you give
But love is much more than a kiss
