      About "I Can't Write That"

      Lyrics for Jeff Bates - "I Can't Write That"

      I make my living with paper and pencil
      And an old guitar
      I use melody and words that rhyme
      To tug at other's hearts
      But mine is still too tender
      To put her on a page
      'cause I'd have to remember
      The day she went away

      I can't Write that, I'd have to sing it
      And if I sung it, I'd have to live it
      And if I lived it, it would kill me
      'cause she ain't ever comin' back
      And that's too sad, I can't write that

      I know memories last forever
      Whenever you put 'em in a song
      But I can't take the chance that this one would be a big one
      And they'd play it on and on
      'cause when it comes to her love
      I get choked up and break down
      These feelings are just to much
      To share with you right now

      I can't Write that, I'd have to sing it
      And if I sung it, I'd have to live it
      And if I lived it, it would kill me
      'cause she ain't ever comin' back
      And that's too sad, I can't write that

      She ain't ever comin' back and that's too sad
      I can't write that
