Michael Mcdonald – That's Why lyrics

By michael mcdonald & randy goodrum

Look back loneliness, you won't see me behind you
Hey now emptiness, no more leading the way
Go on desperateness, I don't need you beside me no more

Come on happiness, I can feel you gaining ground
Hey now foolishness, I might keep you around
Go on emptiness, I won't look behind me no more

I don't rule you out, I know you're there
But I'm on to you now

That's why, I won't be down very long
That's why, I'll be all right from now on
That's why, I get stronger everytime
That's why, I know this heart will survive
After you're gone

You know I believe all we really have is time
No use worrying, no use wondering why
'cause through it all, we're only here to laugh and cry
It's meant to be that failure only brings another way
Every heartache always has another day
Come on loneliness, I don't need to hide you no more

I don't rule you out, I know you're there
But I'm on to you now
