I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me Lyrics

by Rosanne Cash

It's the right time, you know I feel fine tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
It's the right place, I've got the new face tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)

I'm in the right mood, I've got the new shoes tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
I've got a new dress, I couldn't hurt less tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)

Somebody told you I was so cold and mean
(Who was that talking?)
Somebody wants you, don't want me in between
(She better start walkin')
Somebody hurt you but baby she wasn't me

We'll find a new name for such a wrong game tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
I'll show you how long that I can go on tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
(I don't know why you don't want me)

Just when I think that I can make it without you
You come round and say you want me now
Tell me don't leave and I want to believe you
Why can't you see just how much I need you?

Somebody told me I was so cold and mean
(Who was that talking)
Somebody wants you and don't want me in between
(She better start walkin')
Somebody hurt you but baby she wasn't me

It's the last chance for a romance tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
There'll be no next time if you won't be mine tonight
(I don't know why you don't want me)
I don't know why you don't, I don't know why you don't
I don't know why you don't, I don't know why you don't
I don't know why you don't, I don't know why you don't want me
