I Can't

Album: Pablo Honey (1993)
  • Please forget the words that I just blurted out
    It wasn't me, it was a strange and creeping doubt
    It keeps rattling my cage
    There's nothing in this world will keep it down

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    So many things that keep, keep me underground
    So many words that I, that I can never find

    If you give up on me now,
    I'll be gutted like I've never been before

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    If you give up on me now,
    I'll be gutted like I've never been before

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't

    Even though I might, even though I try
    I can't Writer/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE
