Why Don't You Try (Clarkson Kelly)

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 And 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 Because 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 house 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 Because we both know I can't stop myself In the early mornings when I'm up before dawn Say "why don't you stay" but you keep sleeping on Maybe you're just too used to me being gone 'Cause if you know that I go when I go Then 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 Because we both know I can't stop myself.
