Why Don't Yall Try

I don't undersand 


Why don't they try 

All i demand 

Is for them to understand 

It makes me want to cry

'Cause they don't try 

Sometimes I do cry

'Cause I don't understand why

But sometimes I try 

Not to cry

'Cause these tears burn my eyes 

This is why I won't cry

I try 

I try so hard 

But all I demand 

Is for ya'll to understand 

I try to explain

But y'all don't listen 

Its like y'all don't want to understand 

And to be honest all I demand 

Is for y'all to understand
