Blake Wants to Be Like That Guy

The lyrics of Blake Shelton's latest single describe how he'd like to think he'd act.

It took Blake Shelton several listens before he really heard the words of his current Top 20 hit, "Don't Make Me," because he liked the melody so much, he just didn't pay much attention to the lyrics. But once he listened, he liked what he heard—especially the guy in the song saying, If I leave here, it's done, I'm gone, that's that."That's how I would hope I would handle a situation like that," he declares. "I know I haven’t in the past with girlfriends. Ever since high school, you get mad and break up and that’s it. And then the next day, you’re broken hearted and you go over to her house [chuckles]. But what he’s sayin’ in the song is how I want to be. I want to be like that." "Don't Make Me" is on Blake's upcoming new CD, Pure BS, on sale May 1.
