"If I Can't Have You" as written by Tom Wilson and Colin James....
Hey now listen you've been on my mind,
I think about you too much of the time.
I hear you calling but I don't know when,
My arms are open and my hair is thin.

If I can't have you.
If I can't have you.
I'm gonna find someone new.
I'm gonna find someone new.

I'll buy your flowers and I'll mow the lawn,
I'll even go shopping with your mom.
Your phone machine knows me more than you,
If you think about me now how bout a clue.

If I can't have you.
If I can't have you.
I'm gonna find someone new.
I'm gonna find someone new.

When I can't get a hold of you,
I'm just gonna find someone new.

Someone to spend their precious time with me,
Precious time, some one who will, share some laughs and stay with me,
Won't be too proud to wait for me.

If I can't have you.
If I can't have you.
I'm gonna find someone new.
I'm gonna find someone new.

It's gonna be east to find someone now.
If I can't have you…

    General CommentI really like these lyrics, just because it's like he's telling this girl that she's not the shit and that if she doesn't want anything to do with him, he'll just find someone new. I think it's cool, because sometimes people think that when someone likes them they'll just be around forever and wait until you want them, but this song is giving a different message. He just wants someone who is actually gonna give him the time of day, so if she won't, he'll find someone new. Don't you agree? Good lyrics :)

    General CommentI completely agree with you...he doesn't want to wait around forever for this girl to wake up and realize all that they could be together so he's moving on....something I should learn how to do!
