Lyrics
Don't know why I'm surviving ev'ry lonely day,
When there's got to be no chance for me.
My life would end.
And it doesn't matter how I cry,
My tears of love a waste of time.
If I turn away

Can't let go and it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it all so easily to you my love,
To dreams that never will come true
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

[Chorus]
Am I strong enough to see it through?
Go crazy is what I will do,
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby,
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby,
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!

And it doesn't matter how I try;
I gave it all too easily to you, my love.
To dream and never will come true

[Chorus]

(If I can't have you)
