"Don't Ask Why" as written by Cathy Dennis, Beau Dozier and Lukasz Gottwald....
I remember the day I first met you
You really caught my attention
Didn't know I was looking for a rescue
I wasn't thinking that hard
Now and then I was there in the moment
I was ready for nothing
It doesn't mean that I really didn't love you
While I'm breaking your heart

Don't ask why
Before we get too close
Just let me say goodbye
It's easier this way
Don't ask why
Before you ask the question
And I die inside
Just let me walk away

I felt bad that I let my past hurt you
Cause I really didn't mean to
I was lost, I was lucky you found me
But it's got worse
Right now while you're looking right at me
The emotion's so scary
It doesn't mean that I really don't love you
When I'm making you hurt

Don't ask why
Before we get too close
Just let me say goodbye
It's easier this way
Don't ask why
Before you ask the question
And I die inside
Just let me walk away

And I want this more than ever
I wish there was another way
You see, my words can only hurt you
Till his shadow fades away

Don't ask why
Before we get too close
Just let me say goodbye
It's easier this way
Don't ask why
Before you ask the question
And I die inside
Just let me walk away

Just let me walk away

Don't ask why
Before we get too close
Just let me say goodbye
It's easier this way
Don't ask why
Before you ask the question
And I die inside
Just let me walk away

    General CommentTo me this song tells of how a girl had this major crush on this guy , but then at this one moment , she realized that she didn't really know what she wanted , or if she wanted him even . So , she's trying to tell the guy that she doesn't want to be with him anymore because she doesn't want to keep leading him on and continuously hurting him , but yet she's trying to say that it doesn't mean that she doesn't love him , because she really does .

    Song Meaningit means that the girl doesn't know what she wants.
    she doesn't want to be with him maybe, but she just isn't up for a relationship
    with him, it's just easier to walk away.
