I Won’t Be There

by NICK CLEVELAND

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

I don’t know what it is that gets me up mornings
I don’t know what it is that lays me down at night
I don’t know what it is that keeps me a’movin’, keeps me a movin’,
Down the line, down the line

Oh, I can’t stay! Tomorrow starts today.
I’m chasin’ empty air
and I’m leavin’, leavin’,
I won’t be there

You know why it is, so wrap yourself in comfort
Dive in distraction and entertain away
That very reason keeps me leavin’, keeps me leavin’
Sends me to drifting and leads me on my way

Oh, I can’t stay! Tomorrow starts today.
I’m chasin’ empty air
and I’m leavin’, leavin’,
I won’t be there

I don’t know what it is that gets me up mornings
I don’t know what it is that lays me down at night
I don’t know what it is that keeps me a’movin’, keeps me a movin’,
Down the line, down the line

It’s a silence, silence, silence
keeps me quiet, quiet, quiet
And it’s distraction, loud and constant
That keeps you talkin’, talkin’, talkin
