Why Don't You Try Lyrics

by Kelly Clarkson

Oooh oh, ay ay, oooh oh oh

I am a woman cut in two by ambitious pride
Stuck in my ways between you and my other life
Now I have been around enough to know when love is ended
But I believe that you and I deserve to be extended

So why don't you try
To make me stay
When it's time to go
Why don't you try
To stand in my way
'Cause we both know, I cant stop myself

Our empty house you occupy when I'm far away
Heavier hearts wont justify why I'm gone today
Now I have hung a cloud above our lives from always leaving
Figure you would at least make me give a better reason

So why don't you try
To make me stay
When its time to go
Why don't you try
To stand in my way
'Cause we both know, I cant stop myself

In the early mornings when I'm up before dawn
You say why don't you stay but you keep sleeping on
Maybe you're just used to me being gone
'Cause if you know that I don't wanna go

Then why don't you try
Oh yeaa
When it's time to go
Why don't you try
To stand in my way
'Cause we both know, I cant stop myself
Why don't you, why don't you try
When its time to go, oooh
'Cause I dont wanna have to go and be the one to leave you holding on alone
But this, this is my goodbye

So why don't you try
Oooh oohh
Why don't you, why don't you, yea
Why don't you try
Oooh oohh
