​Don't Ask Me Why

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album According To My Heart (RCA Camden) (1960).

Don't ask me why I stand aside
And watch her break every rule
Why I close my eyes to her schemes and lies
And play the part of a fool.

Don't ask me why I love her still
After all she's done to me
After deceiving me and leaving me
With a heart full of misery.

You might as well ask me why I breathe
Or why I live at all
I only know I must be there
To answer if she calls.

Don't ask me why I hang around
Why I keep standing by
But if you want to know I'll say I love her so
Though I don't know the reason why.

You might as well ask me why I breathe
Or why I live at all
I only know I must be there
To answer if she calls.

Don't ask me why I hang around
Why I keep standing by
But if you want to know I'll say I love her so
Though I don't know the reason why...
