Trying to keep a candle burning in a hurricane
That's what it's like when you love me and you leave me this way
Like a dove crying out when he's lost the will to fly
Yeah.. shackled down to the earth by your long chain of lies

Well, I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray
But I just can't do it today
I can't do it today

I can see you dancing in that stranger's arms
My world hasn't stopped turning but it's falling apart
Every breath that I take's a little closer to sane
Yeah, they say that time is a healer but it's still a long, long ways away

''cause, I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray
But I just can't do it today
I can't do it today
Go on and do it today

There'a a part of me that wishes I could just forget
But I haven't found the mercy yet
No mercy yet

''cause I'll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn't shine
Let you back into my life when the oceans are dry
Take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray
But I just can't do it today
I just can't do it today
I just can't do it today
I just can't do it today
Wanna do it today
Can't do it today
Not gonna do it today
