"My Worst Fear" as written by R. Anthony Smith and Alan Gordon Anderson....
Last night you gave me a kiss
You didn't know it, but I was awake when you did
You were quiet, you were gonna let me sleep
So I just laid there pretending to be

You said some things you didn't
Know I could hear
And the words "I love you" never
Sounded so sincere

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

This morning I rolled out of bed
Recalling all the sweet things you said
This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad
Called out your name, but you
Didn't answer back
I searched the house to find out what was wrong
Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But staying here is my worst fear

All along I knew that there was
Something missing
And only one thing left to do
I had to leave behind this life that
We'd been living
But the only thing that left was you

It's gonna make it hard to tell you that I'm leaving
Now that I know just how much you care
You finally gave me one good reason not to go
But being alone is my worst fear
And staying here is my worst fear

    General CommentThis is my favorite Rascal Flatts song.
    It is sung so well. And I love how the lyrics are about irony.
    A guy is planning on leaving his girl and keeps thinking about how much it will hurt her. Then when the day comes for him to leave, she's gone. She beat him to it and left HIM.
    Amazing song:] I LOVE RF!!

    General CommentA friend told me a story about this song but I don't know how true it is but ill share it anyway. She told me the song was the true story about a man who wanted to leave his wife and when he finally decided to do it , he found that she had taken her own life.

    This morning I rolled out of bed
    Recalling all the sweet things you said
    This was the day I was gonna hurt you bad(he knew she couldn't live without him but he didn't love her anymore)
    Called out your name, but you
    Didn't answer back
    I searched the house to find out what was wrong
    Like a ton of bricks, it hit me you were gone(he found she had taken her own life)
