You'd think that I had the guts to leave you
A man like me can't stand to sit around
When I met you I swore that you were freedom
But the strings you've tied they've chained me to the ground

[Chorus]
But I can't leave you
Even though I want to
There's something about you makes me stay
No I can't leave you
Believe me I've tried to
So I wake up just a hating everyday

Well I promised you that I'd write you a love song
It'd be something to bring teardrops to your eyes
So far I'm the only one that's crying
Writing about this crazy love that died

[Chorus]

I promised you that I'd write you a love song
It'd be something to bring teardrops to your eyes
So far I'm the only one that's crying
Writing about this crazy love that died

'Cuz I can't leave you
Even though I want to
There's just something about you sweetheart that makes me stay
No I can't leave you
Believe me I've tried to
So I wake up just a hating every single day
That I stay here
By my own will
'Cuz I figure darlin' 
That's what real men do
Gotta grin and bare it 
Don't ever share it
They just play guitar
And mow the yard
And have a drink.
