Can't Get Loose (Adamson Barry)

I see myself, but don't see me Two burning eyes that don't agree While in the shades there's someone Following my every little movement from the score I call a friend, who's never there Too tired for love, too tired to care While in the shade there's someone Ridiculing every little moment I adore I fold and fall down on a knee And ask a God that I can't see If maybe He or She will call on me The days they pass with no relief My head all swollen up with grief Then somethin' awaketh me from sleep I can't get loose to using you, but that's what I'm a gonna do Havin' fun in heaven while you're crucified I can't get loose to using you, but that's what I'm a gonna do Watching Lillie's flower while your hands are tied Did you just hear what I just heard Or have I simply gone beserk Cos in the shades there's someone Laughing at my whimsical intentions to be free Two burning minds that don't agree One, praying, hoping desperately While in the shade there's someone Wallowing in what I know will never happen now I crash and fall down on my knee And beg a God that I can't see If maybe He or She will call on me The days just pass with no relief My head all swollen up with grief Then somethin' awaketh me from sleep I can't get loose to using you, but that's what I'm a gonna do Havin' fun in heaven while you're crucified I can't get loose to using you, but that's what I'm a gonna do Watching Lillie's flower while your hands are tied
