  • I was walking in Chicago
    By a Wrigleyville bar
    Caught a scent of your perfume
    When I heard Dancing In The Dark
    Now I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about you

    I was picking up a bottle
    At the neighborhood store
    But heard I Can't Make You Love Me
    And I 'bout ran back out the door
    Too soon, I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about you, mm

    'Cause sometimes they make me dance
    Sometimes they make me cry
    Sometimes they make wish
    That I had never said goodbye
    Now I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about you

    I was lost in her green eyes
    Finally went on a date (oh)
    I thought I might be moving on
    'Til I heard Brown Eyed Girl play
    Back to just tryna get through
    These songs about you, mm

    'Cause sometimes they make me dance
    Sometimes they make me cry
    Sometimes they make wish
    That I had never said goodbye
    Now I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about

    All the lonely nights
    The break up, make up fights
    The what the hell am I doing
    Without you in my life?
    Oh, I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about you, oh
    Oh, tell it, oh

    Whoa, ah yeah, ah no

    I go on, keep on living
    In a world that (living in a world)
    Always has you in it
    I can't stop humming your tune, oh no

    'Cause sometimes they make me dance
    Sometimes they make me cry (make me cry)
    Sometimes they make wish
    That I had never said goodbye
    Now I'm just tryna get through
    Oh, I'm just tryna get through
    Oh, I'm just tryna get through
    These songs about you, mm Writer/s: Benjamin West, Brett Ryan Eldredge, Jessie Jo Dillon
