Running with a devil on the railway line
Same old story at a different time
Lonely is the man low on gin and smokes
Thinking getting what I wanted wasn't worth my soul

So I'm going back to Houston in my heart and in my mind
Thinking 'bout what you said when I left it all behind
Losing don't mean nothing when there's nothing to lose
Living isn't living when I'm missing you

Miles from a lover make a heart grow strong
Well I was weak and the road was long
Took a little time but I'm coming around
And I'm thinking 'bout pointing my headlights south

I'm going back to Houston in my heart and in my mind
Thinking 'bout what you said when I left it all behind
Losing don't mean nothing when there's nothing to lose
Living isn't living when I'm missing you

Packing my bag at the old turnpike
Trading this inn for the snow outside
And if these weathered feet never reach their home
Go on bury me deep where the ground is cold

Bury me in Houston where I left my love behind
Thinking 'bout what you said when I crossed that county line
Losing don't mean nothing when there's nothing to lose
Living isn't living when I'm missing you
Losing don't mean nothing when there's nothing to lose
Living isn't living when I'm missing you
