Keep You
by Sugarland



We said, goodbye, tried a hand at magic
But we couldn't make us disappear
Not a day goes by I don't wish i had you
So in a way I'm glad you're still here
It's a bittersweet victory
Lovin' the ghost in front of me

Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide
What do I gotta do
What do I gotta do to keep you
What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me

I wrote a couple of notes one in love, one in anger
They're lying there dying in the dresser drawer
Lived louder than my voice
Struggled through a stranger
He loved me 'til I loved you even more
It's a bittersweet victory

Knowin' someone else wanted me
Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide
You get used to the pain
And numb to the sting
'Til you can't feel anything

You tried to explain, but I couldn't hear it
As if your words were my tears
Flowin' freely, warm and quiet
From the edges of my eyes, in my ears
Then all that disappears

Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide
Now I can't laugh, can't cry
And I can't run, can't hide

What do I gotta do
What do I gotta do to keep you
What do I gotta do to keep you from doing this to me
