But Why

Album: Keep On Loving You (2009)
  • I can open doors all by myself
    And I'm strong enough to face this world
    Without anybody's help
    But why, why would I want to
    Why, when you love me like you do

    [Chorus]
    I could go on livin'
    Without tasting your kiss
    Get by without this moment
    You touching me like this, but why

    I could keep this feeling locked in my heart
    I could bury these emotions, and put up my guard
    But why, why start resisting
    Why, look at all I'd be missing

    [Chorus]

    But why would I do that
    I'd have to be crazy
    To give up all you give me
    What you do to me baby

    Oh I could go on livin'
    Without tasting your kiss
    Get by without this moment
    You touching me holding me and loving me
    Like this, but why
    Why would I want to baby
    Oh, whyWriter/s: JASON D. SELLERS, NEIL THRASHER
