I CAN'T PLAY THE SONG (c) 2002

Looking at your picture, lying on my bed
Wishing I was pulling close the real you instead
I don't know what I said or did, but girl I'm missing you
And I like to hear my music
But there's nothing I can listen to
'Cause I can't play the songs I used to play because of you
The lonesome feeling start before the intro's halfway through
Everyone reminds me of the things we used to do together
And I can't go to places that I used to take you to
'Cause everywhere the faces there they all look just like you
Until your heart comes back where it belongs
I can't play the songs

Everywhere I'm driving, I go a different way
I can't turn on my radio, afraid what they might play
My friends all drive me crazy cause you're all they ask about
And why I live in silence but they just don't understand
Without you, I can't play the songs I used to play because of you
The lonesome feeling start before the intro's halfway through
No one can replace you cause once I tried and even when I try to go with someone new
You are so deep in my head
I looked into her eyes but then I say your name instead
Until your heart comes back where it belongs
I can't play the songs

There's nothing left that I can do cause I'm so lost in love with you
No where to turn, no place to run
You know you are my only one

I can't play the songs you used to sing along with me
'Cause everyone is always bringing back the memory
Until your heart is back where it belongs
I can't play the songs
Girl, won't you please come back to me.
