Your words are like knives
They peel the skin and pierce my soul
Your body will learn to love
And now your heart may still let go

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hope will keep you by my side
And I will blame myself
My sheets are stained with
Memories of your soft kiss
Now this is all I have
Deeper than I can let go
And I am aware

And I will blame myself
And I will blame myself
For holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side
And I will blame myself

Can I have you?
Can I have you?
Why can't I have you?

    General Commenti see this song differently. it suppose its because of stuff that is currently happening in my life atm.
    i think its about a girl, but shes led the guy on.

    she was only involved in the physical stuff...her heart never had any say in it.

    and i will blame myslef for holding on to what I hoped would keep you by my side.

    he thought he could make her see past the physical stuff. he thought that maybe she will fall in love with him. he blames himself for being so stupid. for believing that such a thing could have ever worked to his favour.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Can I have you?
    Can I have you?
    Why can't I have you?
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    shes moved on. shes over him. he's heartbroken. why cant he have her? he loves her. what will she get from any other guy? she never cared at all and now she gone and he has to deal with what has happened to his heart.
