"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

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

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

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.
