With emotional ballads like "Drink A Beer" and "Do I", Luke Bryan has proved that he really knows how to pull on our heartstrings.

Luke is known for writing music about the emotions he has experienced, and through "Do I", we really feel the pain he once had.

"Do I" was released in 2009 from his album, Doin' My Thing. Of course, it was a mega-hit and reached #2 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. It even hit the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Luke sat down with CMT to talk about his inspiration for the song and the music video.

"The song is about a couple that doesn’t know if their worlds are jiving with each other, or they don’t know how their relationship’s going,” he said. “The majority of the video will be me in an elevator singing. There’s a set of actors, and they are doing their performance. You think it’s about them really, the whole song. And then I come in, and it’s actually my spouse that was almost in a situation where she may have cheated."

The narrator asks his love, "Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby? / Does the sight of me wanting you drive you crazy? / Do I have your love? Am I still enough?". The two seem to be on different pages, and he just wants to know where she stands.

"Do I" is one of Luke's most successful songs, but it's also one of his saddest.  "You can tell immediately the song was about our struggle … my wife and I," Luke added, "So, it’s a cool little twist at the end that I don’t think people will be ready for. We just kind of felt like doing it in this kind of setting would be fun."

He wrote the song with the help of Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelly and Dave Haywood, and their bandmate Hilary Scott provided backup vocals.

LYRICS BELOW

Baby, what are we becoming?
It feels just like we're always running
Rolling through the motions every day

I could lean in to hold you
Or act like I don't even know you
Seems like you could care less either way

What happened to that girl I used to know?
I just want us back to the way we were before

Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby?
Does the sight of me wanting you drive you crazy?
Do I have your love? Am I still enough?
Tell me, don't I? Or tell me, do I, baby

Give you everything that you ever wanted?
Would you rather just turn away and leave me lonely?
Do I just need to give up and get on with my life?
Baby, do I?

Remember when we didn't have nothing
But a perfect simple kind of loving?
Baby, those sure were the days

There was a time our love ran wild and free
But now I'm second guessing everything I see!

Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby?
Does the sight of me wanting you drive you crazy?
Do I have your love? Am I still enough?
Tell me, don't I? Or tell me, do I, baby

Give you everything that you ever wanted?
Would you rather just turn away and leave me lonely?
Do I just need to give up and get on with my life?

Baby, do I still give you what you need?
Still take your breath away?
Light up the spark way down deep?
Baby, do I?!

Whoa! Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby?
Does the sight of me wanting you drive you crazy?
Do I have your love? Am I still enough?
Tell me, don't I? Or tell me, do I, baby

Give you everything that you ever wanted?
Would you rather just turn away and leave me lonely?
Do I just need to give up and get on with my life?
Tell me baby, do I get one more try? Do I?
Baby, do I?
