"Why" as written by Melissa A. Elliott, Chad James Elliott, Alvin Germaine West and Paul C. Boutte....
It's three A.M. and I finally say
I'm sorry for acting that way
I didn't really mean to make you cry
Oh baby, sometimes I wonder why

[Chorus]
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I'll say "I love you"
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you

I know I'd never let you walk away
So why do I push you 'til you break
And why are you always on the verge of good-bye
Before I'll show you how I really feel inside

[Chorus]

Why do I always use the words that cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
Why do I do that to you

    General Commentaww i love this song. i think the meaning's pretty obvious -- the guy constantly has fights with his girlfriend/love and he knows that he hurts her a lot and he always wonders why. he loves her, but always finds the most hurtful things to say to him.

    kind of makes me sad lol. i wish my best guy friend would finally maybe feel this way for me as he finds the most random things that hurt me.

    General Commenti absolutly love this song. It totally reminds me of someones first love. Yall break up and get back together and hurt eachother but in the end yall are still in love. Awww total chick song. Plus Jason Aldean is a total hottie!!! ;)

    General Commentwhen I first heard this song I was like...'ooooo this sounds pretty' then when it gets to the chorus it makes you do a doubletake. "Why do I always use the words that cut the deepest? Why does it have to come down to you leaving before I say I Love You???" Cause you're an ASSHOLE!!! I'm sorry....it makes me laugh cause um....yeah

    General Commentyea wlli love this song because i dedicated it to my bf because he lives is Livingston and we hardly ever get to talk except on the weekends and before we get off teh phone he is always to scared to say I Love You first because his sister is a B**** and she listens to our conversations. so i have to say it first even tho i dont really mind it.
