Jonas Brothers – Can't Have You lyrics

(Shh)

You warned me that you were gonna leave
I never thought you would really go
I was blind, but, baby, now I see
I broke your heart,
Now I know that I was bein' such a fool,
And I didn't deserve you

I don't wanna fall asleep, 'cuz I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene,
But I'm dying without your love
Begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone if I know that I can't have you

Looking at the letter that you left,
( The letter that you left, will I ever get you back? )
Wonderin' if I'll ever get you back
Dreaming about when I'll see you next
( When I'll see you next, will I ever get you back? )
Knowing that I never will forget
( I won't forget, I won't forget )
That I was bein' such a fool,
And I still don't deserve you

I don't wanna fall asleep, 'cuz I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene,
'Cuz I'm dying without your love (yeah! )
I'm begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you

So tell me what we're fighting for
Cause I know that the truth means so much more
Cause you would if you could, don't lie.
Cause I'll give everything that I've got left to show you I mean what I have said
I know I was such a fool, but I can't live without you

I don't wanna fall asleep, I don't know if I'll get up
I don't wanna cause a scene,
But I'm dying without your love
I'm begging to hear your voice;
Tell me you love me, too.
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you.

(Yeah!)

Don't wanna fall asleep ( don't wanna fall asleep ),
Cause I don't know if I'll get up ( who knows if I'll get up? )
I don't wanna cause a scene,
'Cuz I'm dying without your love
I'm begging to hear your voice ( let me hear your voice );
Tell me you love me, too. ( tell me you love me, too )
Cause I'd rather just be alone, if I know that I can't have you

    I Think This Song Means, That He Broke Her Heart And He Was Blind And Stupid At First For Breaking Her Heart, So He Now Kinda Realizes That He Was Being a Fool And Stupid And He Realizes That He Needs Her Back Cause Appreantly He can't Go To Sleep Without Knowing That She Is His. And He Loves Her, But She Needs To Tell Him He Loves Him. And Apprently She Went Her Seperate Way.

    I think it means that he made a mistake by breaking her heart. And now he thinks that he didn't deserve her. And he is so in love with her that he feels that his heart is breaking without her. And he doesn't want to have anyone else so he'd rather just be alone. And he keeps on hoping that she will come back. And he didn't mean what he said to her. And that he can't live without her.

    I'm a huge jb fan so I don't mean any harm, just pointing out some facts here. Kevin jonas says he wants their music to be kid and parent friendly but in this song it sounds like they are saying the f-word and parents won't like that. This is like that my little pony that swore all over again. I like the song, a lot, but they should be more careful.
