"Greyhound Bound for Nowhere" as written by Miranda Lambert and Rick Lambert....
Rain on the window makes me lonely
And time keeps on passing so slowly
The old man sittin' next to me is fallin' asleep
On a greyhound bound for nowhere

The sun's goin' down on my misery
Another day gone by with broken dreams
That cell phone I hear ringing
I keep wishing it was you
On a greyhound bound for nowhere

And that ring your wearing
Don't mean everything
And the way you stood staring
As you watched me roll away
She loves you and you need me
And there's some things we can't share
I'm on a greyhound bound for nowhere

Bright lights of a city shining up ahead
My heart's analyzing every word you said
Did you take me for a fool
Or did you really care
I'm on a greyhound bound for nowhere

And that ring your wearing
Don't mean everything
And the way you stood staring
As you watched me roll away
She loves you and you need me
And there's some things we can't share
I'm on a greyhound bound for nowhere

I'm gonna find someplace I can ease my mind
And try to heal my wounded pride

Rain on the window and I'm still lonely
Time keeps on passing so slowly
You're with her and I'm alone
And you're wishing I was there
I'm on a greyhound bound for nowhere

We're all on a greyhound
Bound for nowhere

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous. I believe it's the only original that she actually sang during her days competing on Nashville Star that actually made it to the album, but I could be mistaken. It's about a woman in a relationship with a married man who is obviously in love with her, but just can't be with her because of his wife and, to me, she's just trying to get away from the pain of it.

    General CommentA man is having affair with the girl and they are in love with each other, but in the end, he has to chose his wife... She can't stand to be around him anymore because it hurts too much, so she leaves to get try to heal her broken heart and wounded pride.
    I understand how hard it is, but when you get into a relationship with someone who has a significant other, you have to understand 9 times out of 10 they aren't going to chose you ... My suggestion is to never get caught up in it in the first place. Trust me, I know from first hand experience. It doesn't feel too well in the end. :(
