"Can't Have You" as written by and Jonas/bianco....
You warned me that you were gonna leave (leave, leave)
I never thought you would really go (go, go)
I was blind but baby now I see (see, see)
Broke your heart but now I know ( now I, now I know)

That I was being such a fool (oooh)
And I didn't deserve you (oooh)

I don't wanna fall asleep
Cause I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene
But I'm dyin' without your love
Begging to hear your voice
Tell me you love me too
Cause I'd rather just be alone
If I know that I can't have you

Looking at the letter you that you left
Wondering if I'll ever get you back
Dreaming about when I'll see you next
Knowing that I never will forget

That I was being such a fool (oooh)
Now I still don't deserve you (oooh)

I don't wanna fall asleep
Cause I don't know if I'll get up
And I don't wanna cause a scene
But I'm dyin' without your love
Begging to hear your voice
Tell me you love me too
Cause I'd rather just be alone
If I know that I can't have you

So tell me what we're fighting for
Cause you know that truth means so much more
Cause you would if you could, don't lie (don't lie)
Cause I give everything that I've got left
To show you I mean what I have said
I know I was such a fool
But I can't live without you (without you)

I don't wanna fall asleep
Don't know if I'll get up
Don't wanna cause a scene
But I'm dyin' without your love
Begging to hear your voice
Tell me you love me too
Cause I'd rather just be alone
If I know that I can't have you

Yeah!

I don't wanna fall asleep (don't wanna fall asleep)
Cause I don't know if I'll get up (don't feel like gettin' up)
And I don't wanna cause a scene
Cause I'm dyin' without your love
Yeah!
Begging to hear your voice (let me hear your voice)
Tell me you love me too (tell me you love me too)
Cause I'd rather just be alone
If I know that I can't have you

    General Commentwow this is so great.
    this is one of the first times
    when you actually here that nick means what he's singing
    when he sings it.

    "i don't want to fall asleep, cuz i don't know if i'll get up"

    wow those are some deep lines.

    General CommentWow this definitely shows how much more mature and grown up they have gotten. There are a few lines that just like, made me go, "Wow," and I could just sit there. I never really knew they could be so deep (ha-ha)
    but I mean like this is one of the best on the album.

    >That I was being such a fool
    That I didn't deserve you

    > I don't wanna fall asleep
    'Cause I don't know if I'll get up
    And I don't wanna cause a scene
    But I'm dying without your love

    >'Cause we know that the truth
    Means so much more

    >To show you I mean what I have said
    I know I was such a fool
    But I can't live without you

    General Commentthis is one of the jonas brother's truly heartfelt and serious songs
    I admire them for their lyrical abilities
    yet a lot of their songs can be a bit low key and not so serious

    out of "A little bit longer" this is probably one of the best songs

    It basically discusses their feelings about a girl who they're truly in love with
    you never really know if you'll be here tomorrow, so they're scared to fall asleep because they may never see her again
    They apologize for acting like they don't care, because deep inside, they can't live without her

    General CommentThis is actually my most favorite Jonas Brothers song. I don't know if anybody else notices this, but in the second verse when Nick sings back-up, it sounds like R&B.

    It's inspirational and a truely awesome song. :D

    General CommentI honestly think it's absolute genius where they say,

    "I don't wanna make a scene. But, I'm dying with out your love."

    I just think that line is so deep. It's kind of difficult for me to explain where i'm coming from, because I know the line before it seems much deeper, but let's put it this way...

    We all know it's a big deal if someone were literally dying, so when he says, "I don't want to make a scene." I think it means that he doesn't want the person to see him in this situation/he doesn't want to burden him.

    So, I actually think it has a much deeper meaning than what I just said, and there's something else to it, but it's kind of hard for me to explain.

    :]
