"Without You" as written by Gary F. Cherone, Michael Anthony, Edward Van Halen and Alex Van Halen....
Hey you, wake up, get yourself together
Yeah you, so you think you made it better
Cause you know it's coming at you
While your back is turned
Look too long and I can't help you
So clear your head, find a way home
Better make up your mind
First you say that you will
Then you say you won't
Well I'm just trying to figure
Try and figure you out

How long can this go on
Tell me what is wrong
And maybe there's a way
That we can work it out

There must be some kind of way
That we can make it right
But I, I just can't do it all
Without you, without you

Hey fool, wise up, better late than never
Yeah you, you know that nothing lasts forever
Nobody ever told you that your
Time is running out
Too bad and I can't help you

How long can this go on
Tell me what is wrong
And maybe there's a way
That we can work it out

There must be some kind of way
That we can make it right
But I, I just can't do it all
Without you, without you

The point I'm trying to make
You got to give more than you take
You gotta give, give more than you take
Gotta, gotta, gotta work it out

    General CommentTo me, this song suggests about a relationship of some sorts that has turned sour. I'd like to think that the lyrics are a guy talking to his girl about trying to salvage a relationship that's going down in flames... "How long can this go on? Tell me what is wrong." I don't know how many times I have used those two senteces over the past few years. Maybe i'm wrong... but this song just kicks complete arse regardless of what it's about! This song is another yet another example of the endless list of rock masterpieces
