No, I Can't


I ain't no thing.
No, I can't sing.
I just sit by the window looking for a better scene
Because I can't stand by
but I try, I try
and in the end I'm told no one can arrive
No, there ain't no day that I'll say
there's nothing left for me to take
because I'll always want more, and it's a trick coin
both sides are telling me there just ain't no point
but I keep going on like I'm going to change
the whole damn world, and make a perfect name
but I'm only one, and it's only what I see
and these eyes can't see past the weak

So you see I can't.
No, I can't see what you, you see in me
No, I can't.
No, I can't see the change you say I bring.

Yet I was told by a good friend
I got my life in the palm of my hand
and through the tears I looked him in the eye
hoping to God that I'd remember this time
because I got it good, but I feel so low
giving all of my love 'til I ain't got no more
and no one asked, but still I chose
to give my worth
To take the blow
and it's only one that can change my mind
but it ain't me, and that's the problem I find.
