If I Can't Have You lyrics

Sara Bareilles

  Printer Friendly Version

You tell me that you're leavin'
You say that time will slow the bleedin'
Of this heart that I've placed into your hands
I held it out to you
Now you give it back, what am I supposed to do?
Oh, I had a feeling this day would come and leave me reeling
I just want to run back in your arms again
But they're no longer there
To hold me safe inside, to hold me anywhere

Ooh, if I can't have you
Then I'll have to find a way to get through
Though I don't want to
I have to do my best to recall
That I'm thankful that I held you at all

I miss you every morning and in the evening rain
Tonight, it's pouring, and I'm alone again
I count the seconds between the thoughts of you
I'm getting better, baby, I'm almost up to two
Oh, you had your reasons, and I know
Some folks are seasons, they got to come and go
But I'm still tender (Still tender), I miss the summertime
When I could feel your love and I could still feel mine

Ooh, if I can't have you
Then I'll have to find a way to get through
Though I don't want to
I have to do my best to recall
That I'm thankful that I held you

You gave me everything that I will need to walk this long road
(Show me the way to get back)
Gave me a sense of pride that I will carry with me
All the way back home

Ooh, if I can't have you
Then I'll have to find a way to get through
Though I don't want to
I have to do my best to recall
That I'm thankful that I held you at all

I'm thankful that I held you
(I'm thankful that I held you)
I'm thankful that I held you
I'm thankful that I held you, held you, held you
(I'm thankful that I held you)
I'm, I'm, I'm (Thankful that I held you)
(I'm thankful that I held you)
