can’t do it today lyrics – gary allan

trying to keep a candle burning in a hurricane,
that? s what it? s like when you love me and you leave me this way,
like a dove crying out when he? s lost the will to fly,
yeah, shackled down to the earth by your long chain of lies,
well,

i’ll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn? t shine,
let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
but i just can? t do it today,
i can? t do it today,

well i can see you dancing in that strangers arms,
my world hasn? t stopped turning but it? s falling apart,
every breath that i take? s a little closer to sane,
yeah, they say that time is a healer but it? s still a long, long ways a way
yeah,

i’ll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn? t shine,
let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
but i just can? t do it today,
i can? t do it today,

don’t wanna do it today,
well there? s a part of me that wishes i could just forget,
but i haven? t found the mercy yet,
ain? t no mercy yet,

i’ll forgive you tomorrow if the sun doesn? t shine,
let you back into my life when the oceans are dry,
take you back when every shade of the rainbow turns gray,
but i just can? t do it today,
i can? t do it today,

i just can? t do it today,
i just can? t do it today,
don’t wanna do it today,
can? t do it today,
not gonna do it today
