The Road

I hate the road between us, that always takes you away

and I wish that my love was enough to make you stay

I know that you are packing your bags and it is almost time to go

and it kills me to watch you drive off down the road

I know the road puts food on the table and a roof over our heads

but the road is the reason i sleep in an empty bed

when you are on the road i can't help but to worry about you

I  hate the road that keeps me from you       

 I know you call, and come home as much as you can,

and as hard as it is on me, it is harder on the kids they just dont understand

you miss out on birthdays, holidays, and all out on all the things our kids do,

 it breaks my heart when they ask for you

and  hope there comes a day

when I won't have to say you're on the road
