tell me lyrics – jake owen

she said she loved me all night long
i couldn’t help but let her string my heart along
i knew better, i still do
but i’m not the first man who’s ever played the fool

so tell me why do i keep holding on?
oh, why do i keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
tell me why can’t i just let go?
somebody knows, then tell me

i won’t point the finger but i’ll take the blame
’cause i saw her coming from a million miles away
i should have fought the feeling but i gave in
’cause those lying blue eyes kept on pulling me back in

so tell me why do i keep holding on?
oh, why do i keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
then tell me why can’t i just let go?
somebody knows, then tell me, oh, oh

so tell me why do i keep holding on?
oh, why do i keep staring down the barrel of a loaded gun?
then tell me why can’t i just let go?
somebody knows, somebody knows, then tell me
oh, why can’t you just tell me if you know?
