 Struggling with The Radio? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Lately, I've been givin' everything I've got to feeling alone
Baby you got me livin' one of them hard luck songs on the radio
Oh and I know, if I change the station I'll get the same song
Hope it ain't on the top too long

'Cause I really couldn't take it if they kept on playin' it
It's too unhappy and too close to home
I don't want to hear it but the singer keeps singin' that song

I gave you my love, you didn't earn it
Then I gave you my life, but you wouldn't stay
And I hope you will return it to me someday
I gave you my love, you didn't earn it
Then I gave you my life but you threw it away
And I hope you will return it to me someday

Some days I just sit around and kind of dream and watch the rain
Or I'll pick up some ol' magazine of yours that I forgot to throw away
Then I'll sleep a little or walk the floor
I'll smoke a lot more than I did before
I'll call somebody I used to know
Just to try to stay away from that radio

'Cause I really can't take it when they keep on playin' it
It's so unhappy and so close to home
I don't want to hear it but the singer keeps singin' that song

I gave you my love, you didn't earn it
Then I gave you my life, but you wouldn't stay
And I hope you will return it to me someday
I gave you my love, you didn't earn it
Then I gave you my life but you threw it away
And I hope you will return it to me someday

I gave you my love, you didn't earn it
Then I gave you my life but you threw it away
