Libertines, The - Can't Stand Me Now Lyrics

An ending fitting for the start
You twist and tore our love apart
Your light fingers threw the dark
That shattered the lamp and into darkness cast us

No, you've got it the wrong way round
You shut me up, and blamed it on the brown
Cornered the boy kicked out at the world
The world kicked back a lot fuckin' harder now

If you want to try
If you want to try
There's no worse you could do
Uh oh oh

I know you lie
I know you lie
I'm still in love with you
Uh oh oh

Can't take me anywhere (I'll take you anywhere)
Can't take me anywhere, (Wouldn't take you anywhere)
I'll take you anywhere you want to go

Oh, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me now

Have we enough to keep it together?
Or do we just keep on pretending
And hope our luck is never ending now
You tried to pull the wool I wasn't feeling too clever
And you take all that they're lending
Until you need amending now

If you want to try
If you want to try
There's no worse you could do
Uh oh oh

I know you lie
All you do is make me cry
All these words they ain't true

I can't take me anywhere, I can take you anywhere
You can't take me anywhere, I will take you anywhere
I'll take you anywhere you want to go

Oh, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me
No, you can't stand me, no you can't stand me

No oh oh
You can't stand me now
Oh oh oh

    Do what ever drugs you want and have a good time but don’t let them get hold you and if you can’t do that don’t play the game there 100%

  16. Mago traco

    Bueno, ahora estoy en mi cama saltando mientras juego Apex. Vino a visitar mi tio Vladimir. Siempre que viene me deja un buen regalo o propina jugosa. Así que si sumamos al momento esta canción, pues es historia escribiéndose sola. Un salu2, disfruten de The Libertines, propaguen esta canción como un virus en esas mentes tan humanas y endebles. Compartan lo bueno!

    When band members fall out, accept it and write a track out of respect. Good call I'd say. Honest, just like the Libertines always were.
