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 has ended
But I believe that you and I deserve to be extended

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 can't stop myself

Our empty house
You occupy
When I'm far away
Heavier hearts won't justify why I'm gone today

Now I have hung a cloud above our lives from always leaving
I figured you would at least make me give a better reason

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 can't stop myself

In the early mornings when I'm up before dawn
You say why don't you stay, but you keep sleepin' on
Maybe you're just used to me bein' gone
Cause if you know that I don't want to go
Then why don't you try - Oh Yeah

When it's time to go
Why don't you try
To stand in my way
Cause we both know
I can't stop myself

Why don't you, Why don't you try
When it's time to go, Oh
Cause I don't wanna to have to go
And be the one to leave you holdin' all the love
But this, this is my goodbye
So why don't you try - Oh, Oh,
Why don't you, Why don't you try - Yeah
Why don't you try
