Randy Travis – My Greatest Fear lyrics

Sometimes many miles
May lay between us
But only for the job
I choose to do

And what part helps me
Through my darkest hours,
Each mile brings me
Closer to you

Please believe you're
All I ever wanted
If you should leave
I don't know what I'd do

I'd be like a child
Afraid of darkness
The greatest fear I have
Is losing you

Heaven knows I've always
Had these demons
Watchin for a place
To take control

Whispering you'll never
Be there for me
Waiting at the end
Of my road


Alone I wander through this world,
No meaning in my life
Then I found you
And finally saw the light

    My fiance is a truck driver, and is often gone overnight and for days at a time. We miss each other immensely when he's not at home but the biggest worry we both have, our greatest fear is losing each other. Through an accident. He worries about my safety at home and I worry about his on the road. We aren't able to be together simply because of the job he has chosen. This song is our song and he sings it for me quite regularly. It never fails to make me tear up because my greatest fear is losing him and his greatest fear is losing me.
