Don Covay - We Can't Make It No More Lyrics

You walked outta my life
Now, you want back in, baby
Lord, I wish you were to stay
Where you been, girl
You turn me on and off
Like a neon sign, baby
You blew the fuse
Now the light won't shine, girl

We can't make it no more
We can't make it no more
Cause the love we has died
Ashes won't start a fire
We can't make it no more

You want me at home
Twiddlin' my thumbs, baby
Listen, but now I know
Where you comin' from, girl
Like a leading lady in Hollywood, baby
You played the scene
And you played it good, girl
(Hoo!)

We can't make it, no more
I can't take it, no more
Now you made your choice before
Now it's mine for sure
We can't make it, no more

Dat-dat, dat-dat
Dat-dat, dat-dat
Dat-dat

Dat-dat, dat-dat
Dat-dat, dat-dat
Daa

Just like two lovers in a fairytale, baby
The beginnin' was good
But the ending failed, girl
We can't make it, no more
We can't make it, no more
Cause the love we had has died
Ashes won't start a fire
We can't make it, no more

Oh baby, now
(We can't make it, no more)
We can't make it, no more
(I say, now)
I said we can't make it, baby
(I said we can't)
No we can't
(Make it no more)

Lord, I tried to do
But I, need some hope
(We can't make it no more, baby)

A-we can't make it, no more
(We can't make it no more, yeah (girl)

We can't make it no more
(We can't make it no more)

The love we had has gone
(We can't make it no more).
