Can't Have You

Album: A Little Bit Longer (2008)
  • You warned me that you were gonna leave (leave, leave)
    I never thought you would really go (go, go)
    I was blind but baby now I see (see, see)
    Broke your heart but now I know ( now I, now I know)

    That I was being such a fool (oooh)
    And I didn't deserve you (oooh)

    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I don't know if I'll get up
    And I don't wanna cause a scene
    But I'm dyin' without your love
    Begging to hear your voice
    Tell me you love me too
    Cause I'd rather just be alone
    If I know that I can't have you

    Looking at the letter you that you left
    Wondering if I'll ever get you back
    Dreaming about when I'll see you next
    Knowing that I never will forget

    That I was being such a fool (oooh)
    Now I still don't deserve you (oooh)

    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Cause I don't know if I'll get up
    And I don't wanna cause a scene
    But I'm dyin' without your love
    Begging to hear your voice
    Tell me you love me too
    Cause I'd rather just be alone
    If I know that I can't have you

    So tell me what we're fighting for
    Cause you know that truth means so much more
    Cause you would if you could, don't lie (don't lie)
    Cause I give everything that I've got left
    To show you I mean what I have said
    I know I was such a fool
    But I can't live without you (without you)

    I don't wanna fall asleep
    Don't know if I'll get up
    Don't wanna cause a scene
    But I'm dyin' without your love
    Begging to hear your voice
    Tell me you love me too
    Cause I'd rather just be alone
    If I know that I can't have you

    Yeah!

    I don't wanna fall asleep (don't wanna fall asleep)
    Cause I don't know if I'll get up (don't feel like gettin' up)
    And I don't wanna cause a scene
    Cause I'm dyin' without your love
    Yeah!
    Begging to hear your voice (let me hear your voice)
    Tell me you love me too (tell me you love me too)
    Cause I'd rather just be alone
    If I know that I can't have you Writer/s: NICHOLAS JONAS, PJ BIANCO
