If I Can't Have You

To say it's love would be too simple
Too obvious
It's more like a calling
A vocation
Something I was put on this earth to do
Now I'm shooting with the stars
And I'm flying with the angels
And my heartbeat is a symphony
The closer I get to you

I never saw you comin'
Till you came and here you are
I never thought someone
Would ever dare to come this far
You're up for the resistance
And I'm strong in my persistence
And I've never known a remedy like ours

If I can't have you
If I can't have you
I would be a river dried up into dust
I would be imprisoned for ever having loved
If I can't have you
I don't wanna be me

Then I would be the same man
You scraped off the ground
I'd have to go back bein'
That broken soul you found
Those days are in the darkness
I burried them with hardness
And I'd have to dig those demons out

Your life is like an anchor
That puts me in my place
No you won't let me sink
When I'm off losin' my way
Thank God for your virtue
And the wisdom in your eye
'Cause somehow you get through
On all that crazy in my mind

If I can't have you
If I can't have you
I would be a river dried up into dust
I would be imprisoned for ever having loved
If I can't have you
I don't wanna be me
I don't wanna be me

Why did it take you so long
To finally see
That we had a love that
You don't find easily
You broke my heart
And the price to pay for that
Is you'll have to live
The misery of losing what you had

If I can't have you

My words have come too late

I've already turned that page
Don't you look at me that way
Cause you'll pull me back
And that's the part I hate

I'll stay trapped inside my hell
Where it's so hot that my walls melt

I can hear a promise in every lie
You said you'd never tell

If I had only told the truth

Oh, I could never trust you to
You'll survive

No, I will die

If I can't have you
If I can't have you
Then I'm sorry for the things
I cost you in the end
My punishment is more
Than any man can stand

I need you in my life

I can't let go

Why don't you stay with me tonight

I feel alone

Turn off all the lights

Take me home

If I can't have you
If I can't have you
Then I would be a river
Dried up into dust
I would be imprisoned
For ever having loved
If I can't have you
I don't wanna be me

To say it's love would be too simple
