Kenny:
You know that restaurant on highway 1
With the key lime pie that song the sand and the sun
Where we ran in our barefeet
Built a castle on the beach
Just the wind,the rocks, the waves and you and me

Chorus:
I can't go there
'cause that's just too much us
I can't go there
I still feel your touch
There's places in my heart and here that feel as empty
As our bed
So most nights i don't even walk upstairs
'cause I can't go there

Remember San Francisco on that cable car
Our reflection in the window of that store
How we danced the night away
With the lights out on the bay
Then wound up in a blanket on the floor

Chorus:
I can't go there
'cause friscos too much us
I can't go there
I still feel your touch
Now there's places in my heart and here that
Still feel as empty as our bed
So most nights i don't even walk upstairs
'cause i can't go there

If it was only florida or California
Maybe I could let myself move on
But it's everywhere we've been
And everywhere I turn
I can't love again
'cause i've learned

That I can't go there
Its somethin i can't do
I can't go there
I'll run into you
I can't go there

Tim Mcgraw:
When the sun shines, when it rains
Christmas partys, football games

Kenny: I can't go there

Tim: Winter, summer, fall or spring
I see you in everything

I can't go there..
Its too much us
I can't go there

    I love the way this song is put together. He can't go to any of his and his ex-girlfriend's haunts because they remind him too much of her. He's depressed.

    It's the way he tells Renee that he can't change the outcome of their time together. Too many memories they made in the short time they had together. He'd rather not go to places that once made him happy with her, then try to get over the hurt, anger, and pain that separated them.
