lyrics

CHORUS
Just because you can
Doesn’t mean you should
Just because it feels right
Doesn’t make it good
It’s taken me a while
But now I understand
Don’t do the things you do
Just because you can

In the beginning
There was Adam and there was Eve
They knew the ground rules
And still tried to deceive
I’m not suggesting
That I’m not the one to blame
It’s interesting
How some things never change

My sin is unoriginal
I know your love’s conditional
On believing me
When I tell you that . . .

CHORUS
Just because you can
Doesn’t mean you should
Just because it feels right
Doesn’t make it good
Girl, I’m begging you
Please tell me I’m your man
Don’t do the things I did
Just because you can

You know I get it
This is the bed I made
I may regret it
For that it is too late
I dare not ask you
What he has I haven’t got
For fear if I do
You might start and never stop

Before I lose you completely
Before you delete me
From you desktop, please know I understand
That it’s just because you can

OUTRO
Are we even yet?
Are we even yet?
Are we even yet?
Are we even yet?
Are we even yet? - I’ll let you know
Are we even yet? - When I say so
Are we even yet? - Cool your jets
Honey, now I get
That it’s just because you can
