Can't Stand Me Now Lyrics

"An ending fitting for the start
you twist and tore our love apart
your light fingers through the dark
that shattered the lamp and into the darkness cast us..."

"No you've got it the wrong way round
you shut me up and blamed it on the...

    As said, it is well known what the song is about. These two had and luckily still have such a strong bond, it's something rare to find. "I'm still in love with you", words full of meaning put in between some harsh verses; shows how their love remains extremely deep even after having been challenged so hard.
    That's honestly the kind of connection I aspire to find in my life.
    Still a relevant song to this day.

    It is a well known fact that this song is a documentation of the breakup of pete and carl's relationship due to pete's heroin addiction "you shut me out and blamed it on the brown" a truly brilliant honest song about such a tragic subject !

    This song is part of probably the greatest break up record of all time. It is about the love-hate relationship between band memebers Pete Doherty And Carl Barat. This is also the beginning of the end of one of the greatest rock bands of our generation:
    "An ending fitting for the start
    you twist and tore our love apart"

    During the song they are both arguing but still saying they love each other:

    Carl:"Your light fingers through the dark
    that shattered the lamp and into the darkness cast us...:

    Pete:"No you've got it the wrong way round
    you shut me up and blamed it on the brown
    cornered the boy, kicked out at the world...the world kicked back
    alot fuckin' harder now"

    And the chorus best sums up that love-hate relationship:
    "If you wanna try, If you wanna try
    there's no worse you could do (oh oh oh)
    I know you lie (I know you lie)
    I'm still in love with you (oh oh oh)"

    "Can't take me anywhere (Cant take you anywhere)
    Can't take me anywhere (wouldn't take you anyway)
    I'll take you anywhere you wanna go"

    "YOU CAN'T STAND ME NOW
    YOU CAN'T STAND ME NOW
    CAN'T STAND ME NOW
    CAN'T STAND ME NOW"

    Pure genius.
