"If I Can't Have You" as written by Rick Mitra, Benjamin Stephens Adams and Mark Daniel Read....
Another picture on the wall
Another life I used to lead
Another me that was untrue
With every memory of you
Broken in my sleep

Another moment lost in time
You talked of love and I agreed
So many chances passed us by
And now we've lost the strength to try
Your love was never mine to keep
Oh, no

We can't hold on
We're losing track
So where's the road to take us back
And how did we forget what we believed

If I can't have you
And If the love has gone
And If you just can't find it in yourself to carry on
If you have to leave
Then take my life forever
'Cause I will never be with anybody else
If I can't have you

With every night I lie awake
With every day we grow apart
Is there a promise we can't break
We never learned from our mistakes
From the very start

We can't hold on
We're losing track
So where's the road to take us back
And how did we forget what we believed

If I can't have you
And If the love has gone
And If you just can't find it in yourself to carry on
And If you have to leave
Then take my life forever
'Cause I will never be with anybody else
If I can't have you

Don't look back on yesterday
'Cause that time has been and gone

Think of what tomorrow holds
Without you it feels so wrong
I can't carry on

If I can't have you
And If the love has gone (and If the love has gone)
If you just can't find It In yourself to carry on (can't find it in yourself)
And If you have to leave
Then take my life forever
'Cause I will never be with anybody else
If I can't have you
Oh no

And if I can't have you
