I had to kick this nightclub scene
I drove out into the desert heat
To find my brother where he strays complete
I brought the rain with me

And if I really want to stay alive
There's a part of me that's gotta die
My brother he's the kindest kind
No need to see the light

If I wanted to stay, you know that I would
I don't like to be misunderstood
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good
I know, oh, I know you're not keeping track
But I keep on comin' back
I keep comin' back the way you said I would
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good

Somewhere there's a girl, I don't know her name
But I get so lonely, I can picture her face
I guess right now, we've gone our separate ways
But I'm gonna marry her one day

And every age that you get in life
Oh, there's a sweet and there's an ugly side
I try to be patient, for it comes in time, and thankful for what's mine

If I wanted to stay, you know that I would
I don't like to be misunderstood
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good
I know, oh, I know you're not keeping track
But I keep on comin' back
I keep comin' back the way you said I would
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good

Well, I keep on runnin'
Oh, and I keep goin' home
But the trouble stays with me everywhere I roam

If I wanted to stay, you know that I would
I don't like to be misunderstood
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good
I know, oh, I know you're not keeping track
But I keep on comin' back
I keep comin' back the way you said I would
Yeah, every time I leave here, I leave for good

    General Commentdave is really close to his brother :)

    i think that there are feelings of confusion and frustration. he's trying to make things right but he can't.

    Not completely sure what this song is about. He says that he leaves for good, but he also says that he always comes back...
