Here we are
What is left of a husband and a wife with four good kids
Who have a way of gettin on with their lives
I'm not old but I'm getting a whole lot older every day
It's too late to keep from goin' crazy
I've got to get away

The reasons that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
I understand that lovin a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You ain't the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be Angry All The Time

Our boys are strong now the spittin image of you when you were young
I hope someday they can see past what you have become and
I remember every time I'd said I'd never leave
What I can't live with it's memories of the way you used to be

The reasons that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
And I understand that lovin a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You ain't the only one Who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you've gotta be Angry All The Time

Twenty years have came and went since I walked out of your door
I never quite made it back to the one I was before
And God it hurts me to think of you
For the light in your eyes was gone sometimes
I don't know why this old world can't leave well enough alone

The reasons that I can't stay don't have a thing to do with being in love
And I understand that lovin a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You ain't the only one Who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be Angry All The Time

I don't know why you gotta be Angry All The Time

    I believe this song is about how the troubles of a marriage can be too overwhelming. That it doesn't matter how much you love someone, if you can't allow yourselves to get past things, there's no hope for a future. And if it doesn't end well, it leaves a permanent scar on your life.
