We take for granted many things in our life. We only realize that it’s actually important until we are about to lose it or when we completely lost it. But, we can also learn from other people’s stories. Let us now take a look at Jason Aldean’s song “Why,” and know the reason why you shouldn’t take things for granted.
In 2005, Jason Aldean was starting to make a name in country music. He released his first self-titled album containing eleven songs. In the same year, he released his song “Why” as a single. And, for the first time in his career, he earned a number one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
In addition, “Why” crossed over to the pop chart at number forty-three. Since his first number one song, Aldean began making singles that are in the top 10 of the chart. “Why” sold 500,000 copies, and therefore is gold-certified by RIAA.
The Song’s Content
Aldean’s song tells the story of a man who always argues with his lover until she wanted to walk out of their relationship. He notices that he always makes his woman reach the verge of giving up before he says he loves her and asks her not to leave. He feels annoyed by himself, and how he acts all the time. He knew he mustn’t constantly push her or test her because one day, she might really be serious and never come back.
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I’ll say “I love you”
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
Take time to listen to Aldean’s song and learn from it. Instead of hurting someone you love until they get tired of it, why not make them feel the luckiest person in the world. Remember, we all have our limits and once a person gets tired of the way you treat them, expect that they’ll leave and never come back.
