Country Song about a Relationship Not Working – Has She Become the Enemy

This pain is expressed in the lyrics of Martina McBride’s 2002 hit song, ‘Where Would You Be’, a country song about a relationship that’s clearly not working.

They’re still together, but both of them know there’s a problem. She’s sensing his heart is somewhere else and worse, she feels like he no longer wants her around.

She wonders if he would prefer to be alone, or does he really wish she were someone else. Is she holding him back from who he wants to be? Wanting to ask the question that’s on her mind, she wonders..‘where would you be if you weren’t here with me, who would love’.

The song effectively paints a visual and audible experience of what lack of communication between a couple really feels like. It’s like peeking into someone’s home and watching their struggling relationship unfold.

It’s more than sad when a couple can’t find common ground, especially if they’ve been together for a number of years. Many times, if not most times, it’s the crumbling couple’s loss of ability, desire and pure resolve to connect with each other that puts the final nails into the relationship.

Have I Become the Enemy

Near the end of the song the lyric asks….‘Have I become the enemy, Is it hard to be yourself in my company’ – The toxic dynamic of one partner feeling they’re holding back another is often destined for challenging times. It’s terrible to live with emptiness like this, unfortunately at some point most of us have.
