Blake Shelton – I’ll Name The Dogs


Is there any such thing as an honest mistake?
I’m writing you a song though
It ain’t easy when it’s real

Hit the bullseye on the wrong dart board

Like you just, you tryna unfriend me in real life?
Said one love love love
It ain’t easy when it’s real
I want the real love, not the false kind
Yo I’m a hot mess and if I’m honest
Let me first save the world from my foolishness
I know I hurt you though, you took it personal
"We live learn and figure it out"
I want it all real, nothing fake please
Let me guard my heart from it’s harshness
I don’t know what it is you’re trying to run from
It ain’t easy when it’s real
Oh my God now
If your beauty is closer than an arms length
It’s a journey that I’m on, I pray you take it with me
And when you said we were family, I believed you
(You tryna save the world, right?)
Try to rid my truth of it’s falseness
It goes something like this…
It ain’t easy when it’s real
Said one love love love
[Outro]
If what you need and what I have don’t match
No, I feel you
And I see no need for us to live with regrets

Even the people who try, we get weak too
All your greatness and baby we can make it
You said one love, you can’t unlove
It’s not just one event but a process
Said one love love love
And hear me when I say this
I’d rather just forgive and forget

All your greatness and baby we can make it
That you’re much more important than my point is

When it seems most difficult to keep me close
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
If I win an argument and lose your heart Lord
All your greatness and baby we can make it
In my heart you know I feel
And hear me when I say this
Now is my heart that way? Would I try to betray?
You said one love, can’t unlove
[Verse 3]
Because I needed so bad for it to be true
[Intro]
[Hook]
It ain’t easy when it’s real
You know Nah, just because it’s your daughter’s birthday party I just..
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
You’d be hard pressed to tell me that it’s far fetched
[Verse 1]
Oh my God now…

It ain’t easy when it’s real
I was thinking maybe not debate politics in the pool
[Hook]
[Verse 2]
Yeah, word up, email me about that
What I mean though or what my point is
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
I don’t want to wonder what your handshake means
Not the one that need perfectness at all times
Want to thank everyone for being patient with me
If I’m tryna get out here and protest
[Hook]
You said one love, can’t un-love, tryna run from

In my heart you know I feel
But what’s love if the essence isn’t merciful?
Yeah I know I did it again, huh?
In my heart you know I feel

And to quote myself that’s what this is about
And hear me when I say this
My ego’s trying to ruin everything I touch
That’s when we need the love thing to fill those gaps up
I don’t need to say everything I think I must
Is probably the time that I need you most
I let you down though, I didn’t mean to
I don’t know what you think you’re tryna run from
