Why Try

Album: My Everything (2014)
  • I've been living with devils and angels, angels, angels
    Realize we were not in the same boat, same boat, yeah
    Kills me, how you love me then you
    Cut me down, I'll do the same
    We been living like angels and devils, devils

    I'm loving the pain
    I never wanna live without it
    So why do I try?
    You drive me insane
    Now we're screaming just to see who's louder
    So why do I try?
    You got me like (na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na) (oh, yeah)

    You and I redefine being lovesick, lovesick, lovesick
    Through it all, you could still make my heart skip, heart skip, oh yeah
    Even when you're yelling at me
    I still think you're beautiful
    Through it all you could still make my heart skip, heart skip

    I'm loving the pain
    I never wanna live without it
    So why do I try?
    You drive me insane
    Now we're screaming just to see who's louder
    So why do I try?
    You got me like (na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na)

    Oh baby, look at us
    We been living like angels, living like devils
    Oh baby, look at us
    We been loving like angels, loving like devils
    Oh baby, look at us
    We been living like angels, living like devils
    Oh baby, look at us
    We been loving like angels, loving like devils, oh baby, look

    I'm loving the pain
    I never wanna live without it
    So why do I try? (do I try)
    You drive me insane
    Now we're screaming just to see who's louder
    So why do I try?
    You got me like (na na na na na na na na, na na na na na na na)
