"Tell Me" as written by Joshua Ryan Owen, Donald Wallace Poythress and Jimmy Ritchey....
She said she loved me, all night long
I couldn't help but let her string my heart along
I knew better, I still do
But I'm not the first man who's ever played the fool

So tell me, why do I keep holding on?
Oh, why do I keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
Then tell me why can't I just can't let go?
Somebody knows, then tell me

I wont point the finger, but I'll take the blame
'Cause I saw her coming from a million miles away
I should have fought the feeling, but I gave in
'Cause those lying blue eyes kept on pulling me back in

So tell me, why do I keep holding on?
Oh, why do I keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
Then tell me why can't I just can't let go?
Somebody knows, then tell me

So tell me, why do I keep holding on?
Oh, why do I keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
Then tell me why can't I just can't let go?
Somebody knows, then tell me

Oh, why can't you just tell me?

If you know
