"Can't Shake You" as written by James Thomas Slater, Tom Gossin and Stephanie Bentley....
I still change the station
Every time they play that song
Can't drive past your house
So I take the long way home
Your black leather jacket
Still hangin' in my closet
I wish that I could give it away
Oh even though you're gone, somehow you stay

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do
I can't shake you

I didn't wanna be here
But my friends all love this bar
I don't wanna see you
But I'm wondering where you are
And why am I still keepin'
The shirt you used to sleep in
It's been sitting there for over a year
Oh, even though you left me, you're still here

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do
I can't shake you

I can't shake you
No matter how hard I try
I can't shake you
I can't shake you
And I don't know why

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do

I can't shake you
I can't shake you
No no, no no
I can't shake you

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, it hits home for me. It's clearly about a breakup. And whether it happened just the other day or a few years ago, you cannot get him out of your mind. You want to get rid of all of his things, but you can't bring yourself to do it. You've had previous breakups that were easy to get over, but this guy really sticks. You've tried everything to get over him, but at the same time.. you don't want to be over him. Nothing you do will "shake him," and it's really difficult to accept it and move on.
