  • How could you let her touch you
    In a place you didn't want touched
    How could you let her get so close to you
    That she could kiss your neck
    And kiss it gently
    And kiss it gently
    And kiss it gently

    How could you take her number from her
    When you met her in that bar
    How could you offer her a drink
    And then the front seat of your car
    And kiss her gently
    And kiss her gently
    And kiss her hard

    How could you lie to me right to my face?
    How could your best friend's ex-girlfriend's
    Younger sister's mate, know before I did?
    Before I did
    Before I did

    How could you string me along for so long
    For just over eleven months
    How could I be so stupid and sublime
    You know I think I had a hunch
    About this anyway
    About this whole thing
    About this girl

    I thought that it was just a phase
    You were so distant and so cold
    I thought that it was just your age
    And the fear of getting old
    You acted different
    You were so different
    You were impatient

    And you lied to me right to my face
    And your best friend's ex-girlfriend's
    Younger sister's mate, knew before I did
    Before I did
    Before I did

    'Cause if you run into the eye of the storm
    To get round the back
    You better hit the floor
    'Cause screaming
    No, I can't take it
    I can't take it
    I can't take it anymore
    'Til your eyes and your mouth is sore
    Doesn't help anyone
    Doesn't do anything
    But you'd do something else
    If you only could

    And I wish I could grow up
    Wish I could be well behaved
    But every time I look him in the eye
    I send him to the grave
    And that pretty, pretty girl
    With her nice neat lips
    With your eyes on her chest
    And your hands on her hips

    This itch, this burn
    This pain, this strain
    Dealing, turned out
    That we don't need to
    Help it go away
    So that's what
    Leaving me
    The gift you gave him

    I can't take it
    I can't take it
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore
    I can't take it anymore Writer/s: KATE MARIE NASH
