Written by Steve Earle

I've spent my life following things I can not see
And just when I catch up to them they slip away from me
I've been down a thousand trails I've never walked before
I found out that without fail they lead me to your door
And the world keeps turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
And you're still standin' there
Lately I see all the signs
I feel it in the wind
The same thing happens every time that you come back again
I admit that there are nights
When I sit up and cry
But sometimes i turn out the lights and pray you'll pass me by
And the world keeps turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
And you're still standin' there

Since you're gone my empty arms have nothing left to hold
And your memory cannot keep me warm but it never leaves me cold
And the world keeps turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
And you're still standin' there
