"I can't do this" as written by and Tiffany Arbuckle Lee Matthew Bronleewe....
I woke up late
Guess I'm never really early
I hesitate
Only to fail
I get so tired
Of procrastinating
I need a change

[Chorus]
I can't do this
I can't do this
I can't do this by myself
I can't do this
I can't do this
Oh, God I need your help

I'm standing still
Moved so peaceful
I can't pretend
That I'm fine
I get so ill
Crazy, agitated
When I'm not really dying

[Chorus]

Press into me
(Press into me)
Breathe the air
(Breathe the air)
Bask in me
(Bask in me)
You'll be free
To do anything

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentHeard this song on a video on youtube, I'm not usually a big Christian music fan but this is actually pretty good although I find it slightly depressing.

    General Commenti feel this song is about self harm.. like the song "cut".. the whole song screams "i need help, i can't get over this depression and pain i have inside me". it doesn't really have to GOD she's crying to, just anyone.. like "oh god, why can't someone see me and help me?"

    General CommentI love this song. I seriously can never do something without God. He's always with me, even when I felt guilty of my worst sins. This song is awesome and I sort of agree with Khrysta.

    General CommentI agree with Khrysta.. The part of the song where it goes
    Press into me.
    (Press into me.)
    Breathe the air.
    (Breathe the air.)

    Could be talking about the razor on her skin and how you feel so much relief after cutting you are able to "breathe" again

    General Commentno, it's not a cry to anyone in general, considering this is a christian band and the song is on a christian mix cd, i'm gonna make the correct assumption that it's about god. i do think khrysta is right about the whole cutting part though. but the song really was written about god.
