I can't write a song
I can't sing a note
I can't leave my home
I can't stay here alone

I can't write a song
It just takes too long
Because you have to write words
And they have to rhyme

I can't sing about love
I wouldn't know where to start
I can't open my arms
With a broken heart

I can't sing about Jesus
But I've been prayin' for a verse
Or maybe a hookey chorus
That everyone would sing

Then I would be famous
And that would be alright
And I might even ask you
If you'd stay for the night

And you might say, "yes."
And we would get married
And I'd hold you in my arms
And you'd hold me back

If I could write a song
I'd make it the greatest
With full string arrangements
And choreographed changes

On big stages
With backup singers
And back stages
For V.I.P.s

Oh, maybe it's easy
Maybe I'm wrong
Maybe you'd love me
Without a song
