"I Can't Go There" as written by Donald Ewing Ii and Kenneth Chesney....
You know that restaurant on highway one
With the key lime pie that song the sand and the sun
Where we ran in our bare feet
Built a castle on the beach
Just the wind,the rocks, the waves and you and me

[Chorus:]
I can't go there
'Cause that's just too much us
I can't go there
I still feel your touch
There's places in my heart and head that feel as empty as our bed
So most nights I don't even walk upstairs
'Cause I can't go there

Remember San Francisco on that cable car
Our reflection in the window of that store
How we danced the night away
With the lights out on the bay
Then wound up in a blanket on the floor

[Chorus:]
I can't go there
'Cause 'Friscos too much us
I can't go there
I still feel your touch
Now there's places in my heart and head that
Still feel as empty as our bed
So most nights I don't even walk upstairs
'Cause I can't go there

If it was only Florida or California
Maybe I could let myself move on
But its everywhere we've been
And everywhere I turn
I can't love again
'Cause I've learned

That I can't go there
It's somethin' I can't do
I can't go there
I'll run into you
I can't go there

When the sun shines, when it rains
Christmas parties, football games

I can't go there
Winter, summer, fall or spring
I see you in everything

I can't go there..
It's too much us
I can't go there

    General Commentit's a song about the period that everyone goes through after a break up. everything you do and everyewhere go reminds you of the good times you used to share with your boyfriend/girlfriend. especially the places that just the two of you shared, those are the hardest to face. it's really a sad song when you think of how much it hurts to realize that it's over.

    General CommentI think that it's about a husband who lost his wife. It is such a great song, but very sad.

    General CommentThe irony of this song is so amazing. I lost my wife 3 years ago to Leukemia and there were 2 places we ever got to vacation...Florida and San Francisco. A very strong piece of music by a great artist!
