"Can't Get Along (Without You)" as written by and Richard Archer....
Well I walked out, 'cause I had some plans,
Yea I walked out, destiny in my own hands,
I thought I'd get by without you oh I,
Thought I'd survive without you

I got drunk, I did not know why,
I got drunk, I was dying inside,

Can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
No something is wrong,
I can't get along without you.

I picked fights, with men twice my size,
I picked fights, they punched out my lights,
Took smack, so I could get high,
I got hooked, and I nearly died,

I slept rough, I lived on the streets,
Slept rough, newspaper for sheets

Can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
No something is wrong,
I can't get along without you.

I got a train, and I headed home,
I got a train to the town I was born,
I went back, to the place where we'd meet,
I broke down and cried in the street,

Because I realized what I'd done wrong,
I fucked up I loved you all along

Can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
Girl, believe me baby,

Can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
I can't get along without you,
No something is wrong,
I can't get along without you.

I really need you baby!

    General CommentHe thought that his relationship was getting him nowhere, he wanted to follow his plans and make something of himself but he realised that there was no way he could do it without her.

    I saw Hard-Fi live 2 days ago and this song was amazing, first time I'd heared it but from intro to letting the crowd do part of the chorus to the end this song was friggin brilliant.

    General CommentJust found something which may be the actual meaning of this song (Richard Archer is the HF lead singer)...

    Richard Archer was dragged back to his hometown of Staines, crushed by the lack of success his former band Contempo had seen and the death of his father after his struggle against cancer. "I moved back to Staines because I ran out of money and it was quite a shock," he says. "There's no record shops, there's no decent pubs, there's no venues, there's no decent clothes shops. Look around, it's quite pleasant but if you're a young person living here then you're into a certain type of music - chart house - and a certain fashion, and if you're not into that there is nothing here for you. Here, you can't get home if you're out in central London after eleven. There's no night bus, there's no late train, you have to get a cab if you can find one and that'll charge you eighty quid to get home from central London. A lot of people live like that."
