  • Hell, maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong
    Finding out why shouldn't take this long
    Easier said than done, I guess
    I'm a little bit harder to love than the rest
    Why does this have to be so hard?
    Doin' my best to hold your heart
    And I, I'll never let it go again

    So why are you always angry?
    Why are you always quiet?
    Why do you sleep alone
    When I know you don't like it?
    Maybe you might be different
    Would it kill you to tell me the truth
    What in the hell does a man
    Have to do
    To be loved by you?

    Well, I've been running as fast as I can
    And you'll never get over what you can't understand
    Pissed off, hanging up the telephone
    Forever ain't far, I'm heading home
    Maybe I'm right, maybe I'm wrong
    Last time you ever gonna find me gone
    And I, I'll never let you go again

    So why are you always angry?
    Why are you always quiet?
    Why do you sleep alone
    When I know you don't like it?
    Maybe you might be different
    Would it kill you to tell me the truth
    What in the hell does a man
    Have to do
    To be loved by
    You?

    So why are you always angry?
    Why are you always quiet?
    Why do you sleep alone
    When I know you don't like it?
    Maybe you might be different
    Would it kill you to tell me the truth
    What in the hell does a man
    Have to do
    To be loved by you?

    To be loved by you
    To be loved by you
    To be loved by you Writer/s: Parker Yancey McCollum, Rhett Akins
