About I Can't Stop

"I Can't Stop" is a song by English musician Gary Numan, released in 1986 as the second single from his eighth studio album Strange Charm. It was written by Numan, and produced by Numan and the Waveteam. "I Can't Stop" reached No. 27 in the UK and remained on the charts for four weeks. A music video was filmed to promote the single. The nightclub performance footage was shot at Kadek TV (adjoining Shepperton Studios), while the footage of Numan flying his Harvard plane was filmed at Duxford Aerodrome. Speaking to Sound on Sound in 1986, Numan said: "The flying sequences were done with a minicam attached to the engine cowling of the plane and pointing into the cockpit. I had a trigger in one hand to start the camera shooting."

I've been there and seen it
I've been up and down
And I've been fighting for so long.

I can't stop for all your stories
I can't stop for all you young hearts.

Been up on the power
Been down and ashamed
I'm sure I'm guilty of something now.

I'm back and I'm proven
I'm back and I'm strong
And I've been waiting for so long.
