"Winning The Race" as written by and Travis R./pierce Adams....
Are you sure you had to move,
Move that far away
Just to be lonely in a different state?
Well, the trouble with leaving
Is there's no escape
From the lessons in life
And the lonely grave.

So how is Memphis tonight?
Are you still alone?
Is your face smiling bright?
How is Memphis tonight?

You know I've missed our talks
Since you moved away
The dance floor is quiet
And that's how it will stay
Because I really miss my friend
We lost her in the race
This town is not the same,
Not the same place

So how is Memphis tonight?
Does the couch pull out?
Are you kissed goodnight?
How is Memphis tonight?

I don't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.
I can't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.

Highways are boundaries
If you take them too far
You've got a lot to prove here
But who are you doing it for?
You know she's looking down
On everything you do
So be strong and be brave
Her strength is in you

So how is Memphis tonight?
Have you made your mother proud?
Have you swallowed your pride?
How is Memphis tonight?

I just can't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneathe it all.

I don't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.
I can't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.

I don't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.
I can't believe that everybody's lonely
Underneath it all.

    General CommentSounds kinda like a close friend had to move away after the death of her mother. I get that in the verse

    Highways are boundaries
    if you take them too far
    You've got a lot to prove here
    but who are you doing it for?
    You know she's looking down
    on everything you do
    So be strong and be brave
    Her strength is in you

    He's saying that he is missing her but it's going to be alright because she has strength and not everyone is lonely no matter what they might think.
