SONGWRITING

Can’t Be

By: Laura Alford

Don’t know much
But I know
This one thing
Can’t be a dreamer
Without dreams.
Can’t be a dreamer
Without dreams.
Can’t be a dreamer
Without dreams.

Don’t know music
But I bought
A six string
Can’t be a singer
Without notes to sing
Can’t be a singer
Without notes to sing
Can’t be a singer
Without notes to sing

Don’t know why,
But when push
Comes to shove
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.

Can’t be a dreamer
Without dreams
Can’t be a singer
Without notes to sing
Can’t be a writer
Without words to say
Can’t be a player
Without games to play
Baby that’s why
When push
Comes to shove
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.

Don’t know how
But I can’t be afraid
Can’t be a writer
Without words to say
Can’t be a writer
Without words to say
Can’t be a writer
Without words to say

Don’t know the rules
But I got schooled today
Can’t be a player
Without games to play
Can’t be a player
Without games to play
Can’t be a player
Without games to play

Don’t know why,
But when push
Comes to shove
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.
Can’t be your lover
Without your love.

Can’t be a dreamer
Without dreams
Can’t be a singer
Without notes to sing
Can’t be a writer
Without words to say
Can’t be a player
With no games to play
Baby that’s why
When push comes to shove
Can’t be your lover
Without love.

(Repeat chorus)
