Sometimes I lie awake in bed
Thinking about the things you said
So lost for words, so lost to tell you how I feel
So terrified of changing what I thought was real

It's too bad, you're gone
It's too bad, you're not alone
And I know that you couldn't see
That it's too bad that you're gone
And not here with me

Standing here, trying to make some sense of this
There's nothing between us
Still I can feel your awkwardness
You're so lost for words
So you just tell me I'm your friend
There must be one reason
Only one reason in the end

It's too bad, you're gone
It's too bad, you're not alone
And I know that you couldn't see
That it's too bad that you're gone
And not here with me

So why are you pulling away
It must be from things that I say
And I'm thinking you're thinking of him
So why do I even care at all

    General Commentthis song is amazing. it pretty much speaks for itself, but what i want to know is what Texas has to do with the song. Sure, Texans (like me) are extremely patriotic regarding our state, and i know they are from Texas, but what is the connection??

    General CommentYes, I think it is because he missed being in texas on tour, I read it some where. So he named it Texas, this song being, about Texas. With alot of symbolism in it. In which now, the lead singer has moved to California, so I dont know what he was talkin about. ha.

    General CommentI don't know what this song has to do with Texas either because, to me, it symbolizes a relationship gone bad with a girl. He has deep feelings for her, but she doesn't feel the same way towards him. Its really obvious if you just listen to the song.

    General Commentmaybe he felt like this when he was in texas? or the person its about moved away from texas, or vice versa..? maybe hes talking about texas! hah

    she might have felt the same way, and things may have ended due to circumstance. but hes just not over it and obviously hasnt found anyone that compares yet. like she has. im sure if tht was to happen to me, id feel shit enough to write about it. becasue like he would tell anyone else that hes not over a relationship that may have ended months ago.

    General Commentto me this song talks about a person who has feelings for someone else but she didn't feel the same way,
    and how he knows that he would've treated the girl better "And I know that you couldn't see
    That it's too bad that your gone and not here with me", but she just didn't want to be with him.
    Also that he knows that she's in love with him, and he knows she's gone but he just can't get her out
    of his head, and how he questions himself to why he loves her so much. "So why are you pulling away?
    It must be from things that I say, And I'm thinking you're thinking of him. So why do I even care at all?..." idk if you agree with me but I write this because that's how I reflect on it because that's exactly how I feel...and i've learned this song on guitar/vocals, because of that...
