Lyrics

1ST VERSE:

IT'S SIX A.M. IN SAN ANTONE
SUNLIGHT IN MY SLEEPLESS EYES
TOSSED AND TURNED ALL NIGHT ALONE
'CUS YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHY

2ND VERSE:

IT'S TEN A.M. IN AUSTIN
I'M WAITING FOR THE BAND
CONSIDERING MY OPTIONS
IF I'M NOT IN YOUR PLANS

3RD VERSE:

THE SOUND CHECK STARTS AT TWO-FIFTEEN
(WE'RE) PLAYIN' FOR OURSELVES
FRIENDS JUST CALLED FROM ABILENE
HOPING THAT WE'RE WELL

PRE-CHORUS:

IT'S YOUR CHOICE
TO STAY AWAY
WHILE I GO OUT TO
EARN MY PAY

CHORUS:

TELL ME WHY
JUST ONE TIME
WHY WE CAN'T TRY
TO MAKE THIS RIGHT
IS OUR LOVE
ALREADY GONE?
TELL ME WHY
AND PROVE ME WRONG

PEDAL STEEL SOLO

4TH VERSE:

IT'S NINE P.M. IN NASHVILLE
I KNOW JUST WHERE YOU ARE
THE EMPTINESS YOU NEED TO FILL
IS TEARING US APART

5TH VERSE:

IT'S TIME FOR ME TO TAKE THE STAGE
AND SING THE AUSTIN SHOW
IS THERE A WAY TO RE-ENGAGE
OUR LOVE BEFORE YOU GO?

2ND PRE-CHORUS:

YOU DON'T SEEM TO
CARE TOO MUCH
EXACTLY WHAT
BECOMES OF US

CHORUS:

TELL ME WHY
JUST ONE TIME
WHY WE CAN'T TRY
TO MAKE THIS RIGHT
IS OUR LOVE
ALREADY GONE?
TELL ME WHY
AND PROVE ME WRONG

TELL ME WHY
TELL ME WHY
TELL ME WHY, TELL ME WHY
