Playing: Tell Me Why - 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

That 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

That makes me run for cover when you're around

Here's you 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

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

Got no one to believe in

You ask me for my love and then push me around

Here's to you and your temper

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
