Steve Earle

'm trying hard to let you go

But it's more than I can do

And every day or two

I wind up right back where I started

I'm trying not to let you know

That I'm still in love with you

I can't just sit home blue

'Cause there ain't no rest for the brokenhearted

Just because you won't unlock your door

That don't mean you don't love me anymore

No matter what you do

Because you know it's more than I can do

You told me that I got to stop

But it's more than I can do

And that ain't nothing new

'Cause we both know that I'm crazy about you

You said you're gonna call the cops

But I ain't gonna run

Because you're the only one

There ain't no way I could live without you

You left me just when I needed you

So l ain't even close to through with you
