Leave The Past Behind - Joe Nichols

Sitting in this old honky tonk in Tulsa
Trying to drink a memory off my mind
Well if she only knew how much I loved her
Well she would be here by my side
It seems I spent a lot of time talking to myself
I even count the shadows on the wall
I guess there's a lesson to be learned of this
Never get so high that you can't take a fall

Now folks think I'm going crazy
Just because I've lost my mind
What will it take to ever save me
If I could leave the past behind

I wonder what she's doing back in Tennessee
And do I ever really cross her mind
She's probably out with all of her old friends
Sipping and toasting champagne and wine

Do you think she ever speaks of me
Or do you think she even gives a damn
I know she would learn a lesson from all of this
What goes up must come down

Now folks think I'm going crazy
Just because I've lost my mind
What will it take to ever save me
If I could leave the past behind

What will it take to ever save me
If I could leave the past behind
If I could leave the past behind

Folks think I'm going crazy
What's it gonna take to ever save me
If I could leave the past behind
