I Just Can't Take It Anymore

Just Can't Take It Anymore





by Chuck RitenouR

Verse 1:

When you don't wanna go, cause you can't make it thru the night

And you don't want no one to know you don't have the strength to fight.

when your whole world seems to crumble and it cuts you to the core.

but you think you can make it, I just can't take it anymore.

Verse 2:

When its 4am on Sunday morning, and you are still running down the road.

and you're weak and weary and you just can't shake the cold.

when you know all the songs, but your hands won't make the chords.

you know but just can't say it, I just can't take it anymore

Chorus:

Standing at the twilight, your memory seems to fade

and everything you've cherished is everything you gave away.

You're at the end of your rope dangling inches from the floor

all I'm trying to say girl, is I can't take it anymore.

Verse 3:

Is there anybody out there, anyone who feels the same.

Is there anyone who feels, feels there's no one else to blame.

You want to wade across the river, but you're still standin' on the shore

Well I've got one foot in the water, I just can't take it anymore.

manthy,

It is lyrics that I wrote just a few minutes ago. I have been in the same band with 3 very excellent musicians for the last 3 years. One is experiencing health problems that has effected his playing and has him thinking of calling it quits. I remembered looking into his eyes and the words flowed.

This is beautiful! Voted as such. I'll be following you too. Is it rock? country? Seems to have a bit of soul in it. I like it. :)

Hey Chuck,

Love your lyrics. I was smiling and bopping my head slowly as I read them. LOL. Nice work.

Thanks for sharing.

Take Care,

N.E.

Reminded me of one of my own songs (which, okay, lots of things do that)...anyway, the title is "I'd Rather Die". I'd written it to/for (sort of) my about-to-be 6th ex-wife, who wanted me to consider counseling toward reconciliation after I left a note on the kitchen table and ran like a rabbit.

The chorus:

I'd rather die with some dynamite blowing up right in my face

Have somebody shoot me and improve the human race

Drown inside a stagnant pool of chemical toxic waste

Before I'd ever again consider sharing living space

With your face...with your face

Actually played that song for her once, later. She loved the song, hated that it was about her...:)

Must have been the right decision. Been hooked at the hip for 15 years now with #7....

Voted up and a bunch.
