Gov't Mule
I Can't Be You

Try to rip the heart from my lovers chest
Try to learn from the master, I've done my best
Even tried to shut myself off to way my lover feels
Try to take my imagination, make it real

Yes I tried and I tried
Yeah I tried and I tried
But I can't be you
Though it hurts me to know that I fell
I can't be you
Though you want me to be someone else
I can't be you
I can't even be myself

I tried to always be the one to draw first blood
Pour salt into the wounds every chance I could
Even tried to blame my lover for my mistakes
I tried to point my finger each time my heart aches

Yes I tried and I tried
Yeah I tried and I tried
I can't be you
Though it hurts me to know that I fell
I can't be you
Though you want me to be someone else
I can't be you
No
I try to do everything that you would do
I tried to see everything from your twisted point of view
Yeah

Yes I tried and I tried
I tried and tried and tried and tried
I can't be you
Though it hurts me to know that I fell
I can't be you
Though you want me to be someone else
No
I can't be you
No
I can't be you
I can't even be myself

Try to rip the heart from my lovers chest
Try to learn from the master, I've done my best

--John are.
