I Just Can't Be Free

Verse 1

Starin' out my window your reflection's all I see
Rain just keeps on fallin', see your eyes lookin' back at me
Our moments spent together, my need for your embrace
I can't erase your memory, can't forget your face

Chorus

Baby, you got my number
I never knew how it could be
But now these nights go on forever
And without you, I JUST CAN'T BE FREE
I JUST CAN'T BE FREE

Verse 2

My arms that reach to hold you find just emptiness instead
I want you and I can't escape these blues inside my head
I hunger for your touch, feel the need for skin to skin
And your memory is why I long to be with you again

Chorus

Baby, you got my number
I never knew how it could be
But now these nights go on forever
And without you, I JUST CAN'T BE FREE

Bridge

We loved those lazy mornings
Shared the laughter and the fun
Playin' out our fantasies
With nothing left undone
Can't break these chains around my heart
It's you who holds the key
But these nights go on forever and without you
I JUST CAN'T BE FREE
(just won't set me free) (inst)

Verse 3

Baby, can't live without you, you're in my heart each day
And your body dances in my dreams at night when you're away
I'm wrapped around your finger, there's no place that I can hide
You've conquered my resistance but, you know, I loved the ride

Chorus

Baby, you got my number
I never knew how it could be
But now these nights go on forever
And without you, I JUST CAN'T BE FREE

Outro

I JUST CAN'T BE FREE, just can't be free
I JUST CAN'T BE FREE, yeah!...
