lyrics

Three friends and Gentleman Jack kept me sane
Till you showed up hours late with a smirk across your face
So you think I got a little crazy with the words I tried to say
Well, I’ve got news for you, you’ve driven me this way
And I know I should be the one to decide, this will be the last time
But the truth is, I’ll just wait and keep the bottles dry
I’m just worn and way too tired to be something you want me to be
And I need to let my heart, lie with the rest of me

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you

So for now, I’ll just rest my head in a city that never sleeps
And instead of clinging to you, I’ll grip to my sheets
No, I’m not too proud to sleep alone, I’m just fearful of waking that way,
So I guess it’s time I found, somebody who will stay

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you

I’ve tossed and turned on this for weeks
What I know, my heart just won’t believe
I’m sick of feeling like I’ve got someone to please
Cause you’re not worth it, you’re not worth it

I can’t have you spoil my dreams,
I can’t have you waking my sleep, and I know
You’re only wasted time for me
I can’t have you causing my sins,
I can’t have you under my skin, when you don’t
Even have the nerve to be
But it’s true, what it all comes down to, is I can’t have you
