Easton Corbin – I Can't Love You Back lyrics

I can love you in the morning
I can love you all day
I can love you even more when I get home
I can love you every second
To the ends of the earth
Where needing you's the only thing that's on
My broken one track mind

Girl, I love you crazy
It comes so easy, after all we had
I could love you with all my heart
But the hardest part is
I just can't love you back

I could write a thousand letters
Call a hundred times a day
Or try to drown my sorrow at the bar
I could go down to the church
Get on my knees and pray
But it still won't change the way things really are
Won't bring you back again


I can love you for all I'm worth
To the ends of the earth
But I just can't love you back

    I loved a girl and we broke up. Two years later she died in a car crash in alabama. I never stopped loving her and I still do. When I heard this song for the first time it hit me like a ton of bricks. Every word holds a feeling I felt at one point or another. It will be a favorite of mine forever. I love you samantha but I just can't love you back.

    The song can mean different things for different people. She could have died, she could have left him- people can interpret the way the feel. "I Can't Love You Back" goes through all the ways a man wants to love his woman except for the fact that the woman is not returning. The chorus plays: "I can love you with all my heart, but the hardest part is, I just can't love you back." He can't love her back because she is not there to love back.

    Met the love of my life in 1980. He joined the marines, our lives went seperate ways. Could not even allow myself to think of him thru the years, it hurt too much. I found the courage to look for him in 2011, found his obituary online. He died in 2007. I am changed. Not the same person I was. Devastated. Lost. He came to me in dream, so real. Told me he was sorry, he loved me. Woke this morning hearing this song. He still speaks to me in many ways. I look to god for peace.
