LYRIC

We started out as lovers do
Thrilled with everything that’s new
We started out as lovers do
Thrilled with everything that’s new
Thinking we were both so clever
That there’d never be a never
Because our love would last forever
Each held in the other’s thrall

We tried to love, we tried to live
We tried to trust and to forgive
We tried to love, we tried to live
We tried to trust and to forgive
When we hit the stuff that mattered
Saying things that left us shattered
Taking blame so we felt battered
Couldn’t be ourselves at all

You cannot see when you’re inside
You cannot see so much to hide
You cannot see when you’re inside
You cannot see so much to hide
Two people who don’t fit together
They stay on board in spite the weather
Believing things will soon get better
Love’s illusion I recall

CHORUS

You can’t have it all
You can’t have it all
You can’t have it all
But you can be free
