How to Not Be With You

Music and lyrics by Brian Lowdermilk

I am walking home from the subway stop.
The lights keep changing, I just stand and watch.
I should know what’s wrong, like I should know which way to go.
I should hurt less, and I should remember my way home.
But I don’t.
I can’t see,
Now that you’re not walking next to me.

I don’t know how to not be with you.
I don’t remember where I’m from.
I know your touch, know everything you do.
Well, I know everything except how to not be with you.

Hands out and head bowed, I am still waiting for you.
You keep on changing, I’m not through.
I should hold my ground, I should have nothing to say.
Should you reach for me, I should run my heart away.
But I won’t.
I’m not free.
I’m not a lot of things I used to be, baby.

I, oh, I don’t know how to not be with you.
I don’t remember where I’m from.
I know your touch, know everything you do.
Well, I know everything except how to not be with you.

If I had not followed you, would I know my way out?
‘Cuz I let you lead me home and I can’t find it now.

I don’t know how to not be with you.
I don’t remember where I’m from.
I know your touch, know everything you do.
Well, I know everything except how to not be with you.

Hands out and head bowed, I am still waiting for you.
Hands out and head bowed, I’ll keep waiting for you.
I don’t know how…
Hands out, head bowed.
Hands out, head bowed.
I’ll be waiting for you.
