Tell Me Why by Taylor Swift

I took a chance, I took a shot

and you might think I'm bulletproof, but I'm not

you took a swing, I took it hard

and down here from the ground I see who you are

I'm sick and tired of your attitude

I'm feeling like I don't know you

you tell me that you love me then you cut me down

and I need you like a heartbeat

but you know you got a mean streak

makes me run for cover when you're around

and here's to you and your temper

yes, I remember what you said last night

and I know that you see what you're doing to me

tell me why..

You could write a book on

how to ruin someone's perfect day

well I get so confused and frustrated

forget what I'm trying to say, oh

I'm sick and tired of your reasons

I got no one to believe in

you tell me that you want me, then push me around

and I need you like a heartbeat

but you know you got a mean streak

makes me run for cover when you're around

here's to you and your temper

yes, I remember what you said last night

and I know that you see what you're doing to me

tell me why..

why..do you have to make me feel small

so you can feel whole inside

why..do you have to put down my dreams

so you're the only thing on my mind

I'm sick and tired of your attitude

I’m feeling like i don't know you

you tell me that you want me then cut me down

I'm sick and tired of your reasons

I've got no one to believe in

you ask me for my love then you push me around

here's to you and your temper

yes, I remember what you said last night

and I know that you see what you're doing to me

tell me why

why, tell me why

I take a step back, let you go

I told you I'm not bulletproof

now you know
