You’ve Got It

This impossible power
A strength that I can­’t see
There’s no way
That I can let you go
Why did I mis­take sex
For anoth­er sense
Then wanted someone else
To try to tell you no

I think you under­stand
Oh that you’ve got it
I try hard but I can­’t
Oh do without it

I think you under­stand
That you’ve got it

This impossible power
Has broken into me
And stolen all the sense
That I had before
Why did I just take
And nev­er under­stand
The love you’ve giv­en me
Could’ve learnt me more

I think you under­stand
Oh that you’ve got it
I try hard but I can­’t
Oh do without it

I think you under­stand
That you’ve got it

What made you think
That I’d be true to you
I needed to
Prove it to myself
That I could let you go
What made you think that
I’d be a fool for you
You knew that I was lying
There was some­thing
I was hid­ing

I think you under­stand
Oh that you’ve got it
Well I try hard but I can­’t
Oh do without it
