You Already Love Me

Album: That Don't Make Me a Bad Guy (2008)
  • Toby Keith (from a press release): "The part I love most about this is where he says, 'You can do better than me, maybe.' He's telling her all these things he's done wrong. Then this line pops up in the song that says I know I messed all this up and I know you can do better than me. But he can't just leave it there. He's gotta say, 'Maybe.' You might could, but it's too late. We'll never know, you already love me. Deal with it."
