I can't hide the way I feel about you anymore I can't hold the hurt inside, keep the pain out of my eyes anymore My tears no longer waiting, my resistance ain't that strong My mind keeps recreating a life with you alone And I'm tired of pretending I don't love you anymore
Let me make one last appeal to show you how I feel about you 'Cause there's no one else I swear that holds a candle anywhere next to you My heart can't take the beating, not having you to hold A small voice keeps repeating deep inside my soul It says I can't keep pretending I don't love you anymore
I've got to take the chance or let it pass by If I expect to get on with my life
My tears no longer waiting, oh my resistance ain't that strong But my mind keeps recreating a life with you alone And I'm tired of pretending I don't love you anymore

Camille from Toronto, OhTravis Tritt is one of the underrated county singers from the 1990s. I’m not sure why that is. Perhaps it’s because he comes across as the guy next door who makes strumming a guitar and singing look so effortless. I love all of his hits from this time period, and “Anymore” is exceptional. His voice is steady and even throughout most of the song as he reveals feelings of love he can no longer pretend to have for a woman in his life. Towards the end, he kicks in the passion, declaring, “And I’m tired of pretending I don’t LOVE you anymore!” Well, it makes the whole song. You wait to hear that heartfelt declaration of love. Oh, and the video adds one more layer of amazing to the lo song.
