Can't Shake You

I still change the station
Every time they play that song
Can't drive past your house
So I take the long way home
Your black leather jacket
Still hangin' in my closet
I wish that I could give it away
Oh even though you're gone, somehow you stay

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do
I can't shake you

I didn't wanna be here
But my friends all love this bar
I don't wanna see you
But I'm wondering where you are
And why am I still keepin'
The shirt you used to sleep in
It's been sitting there for over a year
Oh, even though you left me, you're still here

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do
I can't shake you

I can't shake you
No matter how hard I try
I can't shake you
I can't shake you
And I don't know why

And every other time a love said goodbye
I'd just shake it off, shake it off
Pour another drink so I don't feel a thing
I'd just shake it off, break it off
Erased all your numbers, blocked all your calls
Tried another lover, built up my walls
Told myself it's over, don't know what else I can do
I can't shake you
I can't shake you
No no, no no
I can't shake you

Song facts

Tom Gossin: "The song is about dealing with a break-up where you are still living in the same town and running in the same circle of friends. There's no communication but you're suffering inside. You want to know what the other person is doing but you don't want to look like you want to know. You go to the places where you used to hang out and hope that they don't walk in with someone else. The song is about not being able to shake somebody and realizing that maybe you have found the person that you need to work things out with."
