"I Can't Have You Blues" as written by and Barry Alan/gibb Gibb....
I can't have you blues
I got the I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you...
Nothings the same, need my fix of you
A crack in the mirror, pictures split in two
I can't believe you slipped away
I been drinking too much cause I'm trying to forget your face
And if I always try to do, all the things you want me to
I've been letting myself down to an early grave
And if I always try to do, all the things you want me to
I've been letting myself down to an early grave
Nothing stays the same, in this game
I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you...
Nothings the same, need my fix of you
A crack in the mirror, pictures blank too
I can't believe you slipped away
I been drinking too much cause I'm trying to forget your face
And if I always try to do, all the things you want me to
I've been letting myself down to an early grave
Nothing stays the same, in this game
I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you blues
I can't have you, I can't have you blues

    General CommentThis song could've easily been a hit back in '87, one of the best AIC songs in my opinion. It's def about an ex girlfriend and I listen to it alot now because my girlfriend just dumped me and I loved her so much. She had a psyco fuckin' dad though. I always fall for the chics with psyco dads.
    LOVE HURTS!

    General CommentSounds very much like Motley Crue. Must be from when they were still figuring out their sound.
