"If We Can't Have You" as written by and Phil Wandscher Ryan Adams....
Hang a picture up on your wall
Tighten all the nails so it don't fall
In this picture, could have been a picture of my face
Something painful, went and took it's place
If he can't have you, guess that no one else will
Watch him think a while, smoke a cigarette and smile as I frown
If he can't have you, guess that no one else will
Watch him think a while, smoke a cigarette and smile as I frown

Drink your coffee in the morning,
And at night, go and drink your beer
All along you don't feel so welcome here
And I walk by, and you steer clear
You always said, it'd come passionate here
Don't like what you see, you don't like what you hear

If he can't have you, guess that no one else will
Watch him think a while, smoke a cigarette and smile as I frown
If he can't have you, guess that no one else will
Watch him think a while, smoke a cigarette and smile as I frown

    General CommentIndeed. Surprised that there are so few comments on this though - it's a great song. I think it's supposed to be about the speaker being in love with a girl who turned him down because she's hung up on a guy who doesn't love her back.
