I Can't Do This Anymore

by Brett Matthew West

I Can't Do This Anymore

Baby close that suitcase you've been packing
Where have I heard those words before
Must have been the last time that you left me
All alone with the slamming of a door

Well, if you leave me I'll go crazy
Cause I can't make it without you
And, leaving me should be so easy
After all that I have put you through

What's he got that he can give you
Tell me what it is that you need
I know that I can not have you
But my heart don't wanna set you free

Like a fool I thought that I could lose you
Without your love I'm not me
How can I wrap my love around you
When you're holding on to some old used-to-be

Now, these ain't tears that I'm crying
And, my heart ain't broken over you
You're right here beside me
And, love will find a way to see us through

Too late I know how much I need you
So many times I wasn't there
Even though I lost your love forever
You'll never know how much I care

I watch you as you're leaving
And, my back's against the wall
Up here on this mountain
My heart's about to take a fall

Loving you to me came so easy
Losing you will be the end of me
You're everything I ever wanted
How can I be a memory

I can't do this anymore
Since you walked out my door
It's tearing me apart
The pain has gotta stop

No, I can't do this anymore
