"I Can Do It Without You" as written by Nicholas Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew Robert White....
None of the buildings even look the same,
And underneath them all the shops have changed.
I don't pretend they're in a lot more pain,
Stocking much too young for the professionals to stay in.

I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.

I'm in tunnel to the north again
Everybody has to talk on the train.
And if you've got nothing that's clever to say,
Nobody's listening to you anyway.

'Cause I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
But it wouldn't be very good.

La la la, la la la la la la la la la, etc.


What you want here?
It doesn't matter!
I don't think that it can be done without you.
What you doing?
It doesn't matter!
But everything that's done is all about you

We convince each other nothing has changed
Nobody else will ever write the same
We're out of ?? thought the stage is not blame
For your protection all the names have been changed

I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
But it wouldn't be very good.

    General CommentWow, these are messed up... you know there's an insert that comes with the CD?

    None of the buildings even look the same,
    And underneath them all the shops have changed.
    Over the town there are a lot more cranes,
    Stacking blocks for young professionals to stay in.

    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.


    On returning to the north again
    Everybody has to talk on the train.
    And if you've got nothing clever to say,
    Nobody's listening to you anyway.

    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
    But it wouldn't be very good.

    What you wanted,
    It doesn't matter.
    I don't think that it can be done without you.
    What you're doing?
    It doesn't matter!
    When everything that's done is all about you
    It's going on without you,
    It's more or less about you,
    It's going on without you.

    While we convince each other nothing has changed
    Nobody else will ever act the same
    The adaptation for the stage is now playing,
    For your protection all the names have been changed

    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
    I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it without you.
    But it wouldn't be very good.

    General CommentYeah, being dumped after 5.5 years, I can relate a lot to this song. Nothing much to explain I guess, the song is pretty clear.

    General CommentI think it's also about being away from Leeds for a long time, and everything is really different to how they remembered.

    General CommentI agree with you rhiannon, its definately got something to do with how Leeds has changed over the last 15 or so years.

    The line "On returning to the north again" gives this away.


    "Stacking blocks for young professionals to stay in." - Google Images search "Opal Tower Leeds" and you shall find out which monstrosity that they are referring to
