"Angry All The Time" as written by and Bruce Robison....
Here we are
What is left of a husband and a wife with four good kids
Who have a way of gettin on with their lives
And I'm not old but I'm getting a whole lot older every day
It's too late to keep from goin' crazy
I've got to get away

The reasons that I can't stay, don't have a thing to do with being in love
And I understand that lovin' a man shouldn't have to be this rough
And you ain't the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time

Our boys are strong now, the spittin' image of you when you were young
I hope someday they can see past what you have become
I remember every time I said I'd never leave
But what I can't live with is memories of the way you used to be

The reasons that I can't stay, don't have a thing to do with being in love
I understand that lovin a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You ain't the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time

Twenty years, have came and went, since I walked out of your door
I never quite made it back, to the one I was before
And God it hurts me to think of you
For the light in your eyes was gone
And sometimes I don't know why this old world can't leave well enough alone

The reasons that I can't stay, don't have a thing to do with being in love
And I understand that lovin, a man shouldn't have to be this rough
You ain't the only one who feels like this world's left you far behind
I don't know why you gotta be angry all the time [Repeat x3]

    My OpinionWhy is it that the people who post these lyrics never can seem to type nor spell correctly? I mean, seriously... Am I the only one who notices when somebody didn't pass third grade?

    General CommentGreat song. Most people who love country music, therefore, love sad songs. This one is up there in terms of its degrees of sadness and regret and all that. I'm pretty sure that Bruce Robinson wrote it. If you like it, you should listen to other Bruce Robinson songs like "Travelin' Soldier," "Wrapped," "End Like That," etc. He's a great singer and songwriter. Tim McGraw does a great job of singing this deep tune. Like Conway Twitty, Tim McGraw seems to be a song's best friend.

    General CommentI have had this ongoing argument with my husband and my sister. I think the "angry" person is the man. They think it's the woman. I tell them the song says "the spittin image of you when you were young." "You," meaning the man. So "you", the "angry" one is the man. Right???
