Can’t stand the birdsong, can’t stand the TV
Can’t stand the radio jammed on your frequency
Can’t stand my music, It’s every barre
Cuts another scar

Can’t stand the questions, X times and add Y
There are no answers that could ever satisfy
Can’t spit the words out to buy cigarettes
I’m seeing stars
And stepping out in front of cars

Can’t stand my sentence, pure solitary
Can’t stand my freedom, freedom is misery
The cage is open, but I’m too conditioned
To go too far

Can’t stand the ocean, it keeps calling to me
Can’t stand this city, and everything it’s done to me
I can’t stand still, a kiss of death
Brushes my arm
I’m stepping out in front of cars

Every back street and every corner turned
Rolls a ghost scene on automatic replay
Taken back, breaking back again
Powerless, condemned to watch the scene unfold

Can’t stand your sweet voice, whispering softly
Can’t stand this silence, why can’t you talk to me?
Can’t stand my telephone, nobody calls
But it’s always charged
I’m stepping out in front of cars

Can’t face my loved ones, though they’re all there for me
Can’t face the death wish of my own company
Time, it stands still, when I step out
In front of cars
So I can wonder where you are

    General CommentHopefully this takes care of the apostrophe problems. A few details changed as well.

    Can’t stand the birdsong, Can’t stand the TV
    Can’t stand the radio jammed on your frequency
    Can’t stand my music, its every bar
    Cuts another scar

    Can’t stand the questions, X times and add Y
    There are no answers that could ever satisfy
    Can’t spit the words out to buy cigarettes
    I’m seeing stars
    And stepping out in front of cars

    Can’t stand my sentence, pure solitary
    Can’t stand my freedom, freedom is misery
    The cage is open, but I’m too conditioned
    To go too far

    Can’t stand the ocean, it keeps calling to me
    Can’t stand this city, and everything its done to me
    I Can’t stand still, a kiss of death
    Brushes my arm
    Im stepping out in front of cars

    Every back street and every corner turned
    Rolls a ghost scene on automatic replay
    Taken back, breaking back again
    Powerless, condemned to watch the scene unfold

    Can’t stand your sweet voice, whispering softly
    Can’t stand this silence, why can’t you talk to me?
    Can’t stand my telephone, nobody calls
    But it’s always charged
    I’m stepping out in front of cars

    Can’t face my loved ones, though they’re all there for me
    Can’t face the death wish of my own company
    Time, it stands still, when I step out
    In front of cars
    So I can wonder where you are
