Carly Simon – Can't Give It Up lyrics

(Simon/Goldmark)

I've been saying that I'm
Leave well enough alone
Now I'm behaving
Like I'm begging you for a bone
When it feels good you can't help it
You just hang by the phone
And it felt that good last night
I can't give it up

You come on like a prince
You got everyone convinced
That you've a prince of a man
But I'm the one who knows you
I'm the one you show that you
Don't give a damn
Can't give it up, oh no, can't give it up

I've been dreaming you fall in love with me
No cold blooded scheming
If it could be that easy
But you still fight it
And I must like it
That I have to reach for what I want
And as long as it feels that good
I can't give it up

I don't want to want you
I don't want to want you
'Cause you can't give, can't give
No, I don't want you cause you
Can't give....
