Cheap Trick – I Can’t Take It

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Alone/Confined/Depressed/Isolated/Restless/Solo

From their 1983 album, Next Position Please. The song did not chart but the video was in pretty heavy rotation on MTV.

I Can’t Take It

Well I saw you today and realized
How I missed my peace of mind
I feel your breath in my ear
But late at night it’s you I always think about
That little girl inside of you I once knew
I should have known better
Still the smell of you was on my face
But you were too busy
To notice me last night
Now I can’t take it alone
I can’t make it alone
I can’t take it
I can’t make it alone
Oh no, ooh, oh no
Then I tell myself I’ll put you down
Don’t want to see your face around
Don’t call me up anymore
When I hear your voice it’s in my ear
You’re kissing on the phone
It makes it all come clear
Now I can’t take it alone
I can’t make it alone
I can’t take it
I can’t make it alone
Oh no, ooh, oh no
I try to tell myself
Don’t need you anymore
Don’t want you hanging around my door, oh no
Now I can’t take it alone
I can’t make it alone
I can’t take it alone
I can’t make it alone
I can’t take it alone
I can’t make it alone
If it’s wrong or right
I can’t take it, I can’t make it alone
You know how I tried
I can’t take it, I can’t make it alone
I try tell myself don’t need you anymore
I can’t take it alone, I can’t make it alone
Oh baby, my pretty baby
I can’t take it alone, I can’t make it alone

  1. Yay, Cheap Trick! The only Cheap Trick song I know is the one they did for a famous 80s movie that I know forgot the title for (Top Gun? Ghostbusters?),. Anyways, I like “I Can’t Take It”, thanks for the recommendation!
