"You Can" as written by Tim James and Antonina Armato....
Mmmmm

Take me where I've never been
Help me on my feet again
Show me that good things come to those who wait
Tell me I'm not on my own
Tell me I won't be alone
Tell me what I'm feelin' isn't some mistake
'Cause if anyone can make me fall in love
You can

Save me from myself, you can
And it's you and no one else
If I could wish upon tomorrow
Tonight would never end
If you asked me, I would follow
But for now, I just pretend
'Cause if anyone can make me fall in love
You can

Baby, when you look at me
Tell me, what do you see?
Are these the eyes of someone you could love?
'Cause everything that brought me here
Well, now it all seems so clear
Baby, you're the one I've been dreamin' of
If anyone can make me fall in love
You can

Save me from myself, you can
And it's you and no one else
If I could wish upon tomorrow
Tonight would never end
If you asked me, I would follow
But for now, I just pretend
'Cause if anyone can make me fall in love

Only you can take me sailin' in your deepest eyes
Bring me to my knees and make me cry
And no one's ever done this
Everything was just a lie
And I know, yes I know

This is where it all begins
So tell me it'll never end
I can't fool myself
It's you and no one else
If I could wish upon tomorrow
Tonight would never end
If you asked me, I would follow
But for now, I just pretend
If anyone can make me fall in love
You can

Show me that good things come to those who wait

    My InterpretationI think this is his best song--maybe because I can relate to some of it. This is just my interpretation. It may not fit with other parts of the song, but...

    The first stanza in particular hit me really hard the other day. I'm dealing with a lot of personal issues right now, and it's made me wonder if any man will ever love me enough--despite how messed-up I am--to "help me on my feet again" and give me what I've wanted for so long. "Take me where I've never been"... I've never felt that way for anyone, or vice versa, and I want it so badly. And "show me that good things come to those who wait" is a beautiful line. So many people wait for years to find love, and it gets discouraging when it doesn't come. You want to know that the pain is worth it.

    "Save me from myself" is knowing that you're not helping yourself out of this difficult situation--in my case, depression and not being able to love myself. Only a loved one can make you feel validated and help you realize your potential.

    "No one's ever done this / Everything was just a lie" is my absolute favorite part of the song. Over the last few months, I've basically stopped believing in love because it all seems like a lie; like a fantasy that will never be real.

    So, to wrap it up: I think the main theme of the song is that he wants to experience love, to know that it's real, and he knows this person can make that happen as well as pull him out of his doubt.

    Sorry if it seems like I'm just venting about my own life. I just hope my thoughts bring new insight to someone else.

    General Commentafter three years of closing my doors, i found the person that i can spend my life with.
    the thing is, he is committed. :(

    "If you asked me, I would follow
    But for now I'll just pretend"

    sometimes, love feels so right, but doesnt mean pain doesnt come along with it.
    you want to tell that someone how you are deeply in love. but there are things that tells you that you cant.
    or you can, but you may not get that love you want. so you just need to stick around, and hope that you're waiting for something that eventually will be yours.
