When I saw my reflection in her eyes
That's when I knew that it was time
I leaned over and kissed her cheek
And softly said goodbye
Against the glass I heaved a sigh
Followed the fading of it's lights
Watched the plane begin it's flight
With my eyes into the night

And I know that I'm a coward
Who couldn't even tell her
As she begged me with those eyes
Give her a reason not to fly
And it haunts me on the highway
Headin back to my place
Why oh why oh why oh why oh why

With miles between us
How could love have seen us
And given us this chance
And I hear it whisper
"Could you not have kissed her
And shown her you're a man,
Who wants nothing more in life
Than for her to be your wife?"

And I know that I'm a coward
Who couldn't even tell her
As she begged me with those eyes
Give her a reason not to fly
And it haunts me on the highway
Headin back to my place
Why oh why oh why oh why oh why

With miles between us
How could love have seen us
And given us this chance
And I hear it whisper
"Could you not have kissed her
And shown her you're a man,
Who wants nothing more in life
Than for her to be your wife?"

Should I laugh?
Should I cry?
Should I get back in my car and drive
fifteen hours to make things right?
