"Without You" as written by Eric Silver and Natalie Maines....
I've sure enjoyed the rain, but I'm looking forward to the sun
You have to feel the pain when you lose the love you gave someone
I thought by now that time would take away these lonely tears
I hope you're fine all alone, where do I go from here
'Cause

Without you I'm not okay
And without you I've lost my way
My heart's stuck in second place, ooh
Without you

Well, I never thought I'd be lying here without you by my side
It seems unreal to me that the life you promised was a lie
You made it look so easy making love into memories
I guess you got what you wanted, but what about me, 'cause

Without you I'm not okay
And without you I've lost my way
My heart's stuck in second place, ooh
Without you

Somebody tell my head, to try to tell my heart
That I'm better off without you
'Cause baby I can't live

Without you I'm not okay
And without you I've lost my way
My heart's stuck in second place, ooh
Without you, without you

    General CommentWhen this song was released, I was in the middle of a bad break up, which almost word for word suits this song. I still feel the sting when I hear this song, even though it's been four years and now the guy and I have worked things out and are back together.

    General Commenti think what coudl also be interpreted from "the life you promised was a lie" could be a family... because in the video they made the woman is pregnant heres the link if you want to watch it on youtube:

    General Commenti just realised that at the end of the video they say its dedicated to Jakson Miles Ezell

    kinda makes the sad a lot sadder... its one thing to lose a loved one, but a whole other thing to lose a child =[

    General Commentif my memory serves me correctly, i believe that jackson miles ezel, to whom the video is dedicated, was the child of the pregnant woman in the video. the chicks thought about not releasing the video, out of respect, but the woman told them to do it, in her baby's honor... so beautiful!

    General CommentJackson Miles Ezell is the name of the baby in the lady of the video. I am friends of this family and very grateful to the Dixie Chicks for dedicating this video to him.

    My InterpretationGiven that he apparently lied about wanting a long-term relationship to get sex, you might be tempted to take "I hope you're doing fine all alone" as sarcastic. But the lyrics as a whole suggest she's still too in love for that.
