I Can't Stand Still Lyrics

by Don Henley

I know you love me
You know I love you too
You know I always will
No matter what you do

Say you haven't got another lover
Say you only want to make the scene
Then you try to keep it under cover
What does that mean?

And baby, I can't stand still
While he's holding you
I can't stand
While he's kissing you

So we got a little problem, baby
How to put together love and work?
If I could figure out that one, darlin'
I could save us from a world of hurt

I remember when we walked together
Making love on a summer night
Guess we thought that it would last forever
We were all right

But baby, I can't stand still
While he's holding you
I can't stand still
While he's touching you

I can take it if you need some freedom
Understand it if you miss your friends
Don't you ever try to think of me?
So, you never tell me where you've been

Say you haven't got another lover
Say you only want to make the scene
Then you try to keep it under cover
What does that mean?

And baby, I can't stand still
While he's holding you
I can't stand still
While he's kissing you

Baby, I can't stand still
While he's holding you
I can't stand still
While he's touching you

Baby, I can't stand still
While he's holding you
I can't stand still
While he's touching you

Baby, I can't stand still
Baby, I can't stand still
While he's kissing you
Baby, I can't stand still
While he's touching you
