<!--This seems to be a favorite of a lot of people. I wrote it after Donna and I had been dating for about two months and I was convinced (at least for one evening) that she was never going to feel about me the way I felt about her. Talk about emotional whitemale! :-)-->

Lyrics

You Can Only Love Somebody So Long
words & music by J Carney © 2009-2011 gigajimoh music


You can only love somebody so long
‘Til you finally give up and go home
You can hope you’re right ‘til you find out you’re wrong
‘Cause it’s not love if you’re in it alone.
And I can only believe what they tell me
If it’s not in here eyes, it’s not there
It’s hard to surrender a feeling this strong
But you can only love somebody so long.

You can only give somebody your heart
If they’re ready to take it from you
And if not, it’ll tear you apart
Tryin’ to figure what else you could do
You can’t win the battle by fighting
And you sure can’t win walking away
It’s hard to surrender a feeling this strong
But you can only love somebody so long.
But you can only love somebody so long.

You can only love somebody so long
‘Til it fades like perfume in the breeze
What you hoped was alright is all wrong
And you’re left with just sad memories
You can’t win the battle by fighting
And you sure can’t win walking away
It’s hard to surrender a feeling this strong
But you can only love somebody so long.
You can only love somebody so long.
