"Just Can't Have It" as written by Tor Erik Hermansen, Amund Bjorklund, Espen Lind, Mikkel Eriksen and Johnta Austin....
Just can't have it, just can't have it
Said I just can't have it, just can't have it
Just can't have it, just can't have it
No I just can't have it, just can't have it

It's been about 20 days now
And the truth is that I really miss you in my life
I heard that bouncing back was easy
But I can't seem to get you off my mind

And I know that you can't hear me, but I think about you every day
And I have the shortest memory, but I can't forget the pain
That I felt when you went away

I can't have it both ways
I'm sorry that I said goodbye
People say I did the right thing
They don't have to cry
I can't love you for all the things that you are
And then hate you for all the things that you're not
I want you to go and want you to stay
But I can't have it both ways
No I can't have it both ways

You used to put the s in selfish
Most time the only one you cared for was yourself
But then you go and put the a in affection
And you could make me forget about everything else

And I know that you can't hear me, but I think about you every day
And I have the shortest memory, but I can't forget the pain
That I felt when you went away

I can't have it both ways
I'm sorry that I said goodbye
People say I did the right thing
They don't have to cry
I can't love you for all the things that you are
And then hate you for all the things that you're not
I want you to go and want you to stay
But I can't have it both ways
No I can't have it both ways

Hating, hate is overrated baby
So are all the mistakes we make in life
Just to keep our pride

I can't have it both ways, I really want it that way
But I love it this way
I can't have it both ways, I can't have it both ways
I really want it
And I love you and hate you
You're gone and you stay
I'll fight you tomorrow, but want you today
It's all the same
And I just can't have it both ways

I can't have it both ways
I'm sorry that I said goodbye
People say I did the right thing
They don't have to cry
I can't love you for all the things that you are
And then hate you for all the things that you're not
I want you to go and want you to stay
But I can't have it both ways
No I can't have it both ways

Just can't have it
I can't have it both ways
Said I just can't have it, just can't have it
Just can't have it, just can't have it
No I just can't have it, just can't have it
I can't have it both ways

    General Commenti love this song, SO much. it's something a lot of girls can relate to.

    "I can't love you for all the things that you are
    And then hate you for all the things that you're not"
    that's possibly my favorite part of the song.
    i believe that it means she loves him and certain aspects about him SO much, but it's hard to love someone when there are things that are missing.
