"Can't Take It" as written by and Alexander Greenwald....
Something strange,
Somehow I get the feeling
I'm where everyone knows your name
It's not much different but
It's surely not the same
You'll find peace in knowing now
I'm so sick and tired of hearing myself
Believe me, I never guessed
You had one up your sleeve
Well, there I go

So smile, you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
I can't take it anymore, Yeah
Can't take it anymore, Yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?

Left alone, I was stuck to go over
All the things that I've done wrong
Sure, I was stuck in a hole
But now we've got a song
After all the love is gone
Where did you get off saying
It's not so lame?
We've had it different
And I know we're not the same
Well, there I go

So smile, you've done your part,
But I'm waiting for someone to say
I can't take it anymore, Yeah
Can't take it anymore, Yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?

So smile, you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
I can't take it anymore, Yeah
Can't take it anymore, Yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?

Can't take it anymore, anymore
What's so wrong with being sad? Yeah

    General Commentto me, this song is about how somebody loses a relationship, and the guy is always complaining over how upset he is and sad and confused, and everybody gets sick of his complaining. "i'm waiting for someone to say i can't take it anymore, what's so wrong with being sad?" like they're asking him why can't he just deal with his saddness and keep it to himself.
    towards the end he starts wondering and thinking again so he gets mad at himself and says "well there i go"
    i always get pissed off at myself and wonder what i did wrong when i lose somebody special.
