    I Can't Give You What Need

    I can't give you what you need
    I'm already somebody's everything.

    It's tempting to make love to you
    I couldn't endure the pain
    It would bring.

    I know you want to lay me down.
    It would mess up the friendship
    We have found.

    We can't really call it love
    It's more like lust.

    We have to do the right thing
    Cause God is watching both of us.

    There something you have to realize
    I wouldn’t want to look at her
    With guilt in my eyes.

    As bad as we want to get it in
    And put it down
    It would be better if you just
    Stop coming around.

    Right now I need you to go
    Cause I'm not strong enough
    To tell you no.


    (The Chorus)
    I can’t give you what you want
    Cause I’m already somebody’s everything.
    Even though I love the joy you bring.

    I see you everyday
    Let’s take a brake for now
    And sort these feelings out.

    It might sound crazy
    But I ain’t tryna lose my baby.

    (The Bridge)
    Lets fall back and take this in
    Gather our thoughts and start over again.


    (2nd verse )
    I Can't Give You What Need

    Ok I get it
    This is the end.
    We can’t be lovers
    At least let us be friends.

    Do you think walking away
    Is that easy?
    Well it’s not I tried
    Trust and believe me.

    You started catching feelings
    Now you want to call it quits.
    Honestly this is some bullshit.

    You’re the first person I call
    When I get home.

    Your voice is the last that I hear
    When I hang up the phone.

    When I’m alone
    I get in my zone.

    I Close my eyes and see your face
    Then I start to moan.

    I Can’t get enough of
    Your mental stimulation.
    We haven’t really touched
    It’s just sexy convocation.

    I can’t believe you want
    To do this to me.
    You said our love would last
    For all eternity.

    I’ve gotten so close to you.
    We are more then friends.
    So I be damn
    If it’s coming to a end.



    (The Chorus)
    I can’t give you what you want
    Cause I’m already somebody’s everything.
    Even though I love the joy you bring.

    I see you everyday
    Let’s take a brake for now
    And sort these feelings out.

    It might sound crazy
    But I ain’t tryna lose my baby.

    (3rd verse )
    I Can't Give You What Need

    We‘ve accumulated feelings
    Like a snowfall.
    Like a soldier when we alone
    You have me standing tall.

    Don’t know how we got
    To this place where are.
    We have to pump the breaks
    Befor we go too far.

    I can’t lie
    I have a lot of fun with you.
    In all reality
    I’m not the one for you.

    I’m not going to make a fool of myself.
    Cause I love my baby
    The way I never loved anybody else.

    Not trying to hurt your feelings
    Just don’t want to lead you on.

    Don’t want to see you cry
    Don’t want to leave your heart torn.

    I refuse to be like
    Other men in your life.
    You’re a good woman
    One day you’re make a good wife.


    (The Chorus)
    I can’t give you what you want
    Cause I’m already somebody’s everything.
    Even though I love the joy you bring.

    I see you everyday
    Let’s take a brake for now
    And sort these feelings out.

    It might sound crazy
    But I ain’t tryna lose my baby.

    (4th verse )
    I Can't Give You What Need

    I guess I have to leave you alone.
    I’ll wait for God
    To send me a man of my own.

    I’ve shared everything
    I’ve been through.
    I wish I had a man
    Just like you.

    Someone who’s caring and attentive
    You make me sick.
    Your love is so addictive.

    I have to be patient and wait on God.
    I never been here befor
    This is so hard.

    Do me one favor please
    Stay my friend.
    Be there for me
    Until my new life begins.



    (The Chorus)
    I can’t give you what you want
    Cause I’m already somebody’s everything.
    Even though I love the joy you bring.

    I see you everyday

    Just doesn't do anything emotionally.

    Use more imagery, appeal to all of the senses.
