Another Gretchen Peters penned gem. I’ve always thought this song was about a suicide, although it could just be about a lost love.
When Trisha Yearwood sings the final verse, it brings a tear to my eye:
And you chase me like a shadow
And you haunt me like a ghost
And I hate you some, and I love you some
But I miss you most
OH Mel! This song got me! I had never heard this song before, but love Trisha. Wow. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. It made me think of people that have passed on and how you sometimes see their face in crowd and have to do a double take. And the pang your heart feels when you realize that it can’t be them because they are gone. I love when songs can grab you like this.
I’m glad you like. I love it for exactly the same reason. One of my all-time favorites!
What a beautiful song that really tugs at your heart because I have felt many of the lines in this song. I especially love the lines
“We were just gettin’ to the good part
Just gettin’past the mystery”…..
A song that can make you feel emotion and bring a tear to your eyes means that the writer has a true gift of words. Trisha has a beautiful voice, she gave life to the beautiful words that Gretchen Peters wrote, this song just made me a bigger Gretchen Peters fan.
Sad song, I think her lover died and she sees him everywhere.
