Till I Can’t Take It Anymore

Written by Clyde Otis and Ulysses Burton;

revisions by Debra Milligan


I won’t fight it anymore

Unpack my bags and close the door

I’ll never leave you

 

Yes, I lied right from the start

Can’t convince your foolish heart

Not to believe me

 

There are other loves I’ve known

who quickly got outgrown

and there are others I simply ignored

 

But you do your thing so well

I’ll dream of heaven and live in hell

Till I can’t take it anymore

 

If I had one ounce of pride

I’d stand up or step aside

But I still love you


You accept the crumbs I drop

cause you’re a fool and can’t stop

or rise above me

 

Here I’m speaking for myself

for you and no one else

 

We’re beggars knocking

on each other’s door.

 

We do our thing so well



We’ll dream of heaven

and live in hell

 

Till we can’t take it anymore

 

While I’m making up my mind

You’ll be praying all the time

Praying that I won’t be letting you go

 

We went too far to turn around

can’t pick ourselves up off the ground

 

We’ll have to take it some more

 

While I’m making up my mind

You’ll be praying all the time

Praying that I won’t be

letting you go

 

We’ll somehow make it out of hell

cause our love knows too well

 

that we’re knocking

at heaven’s door.
