Lyrics

Why Don't You

Written By: James Jackson Aycock

She said “please come over..
He came home drunk again..”
I hit the gas, ‘cause I knew what she meant.

She couldn’t hide the bruises
When I walked through her door.
She cried, I just can’t take this anymore.

How many times can he do this to you?
If he wakes up, what are you gonna do?

Why don’t you make up your mind?
Why don’t you leave him this time?
Why don’t you realize
Your life is on the line?
Why don’t you?
‘cause he’ll never change
And if leaving him is what you need to do,
Why don’t you?

You used to be so carefree
You could light up any place
Now you stand here with your head down, ashamed to show your face.

Remember Billy Robins?
Well, he’s back in Tennessee
He told me that he misses you, and wishes you were free.

We can talk about this later, just get in the car.
If the whiskey wears off, we won’t get too far!

Why don’t you make up your mind?
Why don’t you leave him this time?
Why don’t you realize
Your life is on the line.
Why don’t you?
‘cause he’ll never change
And if leaving him is what you need to do?
Why don’t you?

This situation is critical
You’ve got your whole life ahead of you
Can’t you see that you’re beautiful
Everybody else does, why don’t you?

Make up your mind.
Leave him this time.
Why don’t you realize your life is on the line?
Why don’t you?
‘cause he’ll never change
And if leaving him is what you need to do...
Why don’t you?
Why don’t you?
