Keep You

Tue, Sep 6, 2011 at 8:18 AM By: Anne-MarieCooke

We said goodbye, tried her hand at magic
We couldn't make us disappear
Not a day goes by I don't wish I had you
So in a way I'm glad you're still here

It's a bittersweet victory
Lovin' the ghost in front of me

Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide

What do I gotta do?
What do I gotta do to keep you?
What do I gotta do to keep you,
From doin' this to me?

I wrote a couple of notes,
One in love, one in anger
They're lyin' there
Dyin' in the dresser drawer

Lived louder than my voice
Struggle through a stranger
He loved me
Til I loved you even more

It's a bittersweet victory
Lovin' someone else who wanted me

Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide
You get used to the pain and numb to the sting
Til you can't feel anything

You tried to explain, but I couldn't hear it
As if your words were my tears
Flowin' freely, warm and quiet
From the edges of my eyes and my ears

Then all that disappears

Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide
Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide

What do I gotta do?
What do I gotta do to keep you?
What do I gotta do to keep you,
From doin' this to me?
