Can't Keep
Pearl Jam Lyrics

I want to shake
I want to wind out
I want to leave
(this) mind and shout

I've lived
all this life
like an ocean
in disguise
I don't live for
you can't keep me here

I want to race
with the sundwon
I want a last breath
I don't let out

every being
the bad feelings
it's just me
I won't wait
for answers
you can't keep
me here

I want to rise
and say goodnight
want to take
a look on the other side

I've lived
all these lives
it's been wonder
full at night
I will live for
you can't keep
me here.

Can't Keep (tradução)

Não Pode Manter

Eu quero balançar, Eu quero sair fora

Eu quero sair dessa mente e gritar

Eu vivi toda essa vida

Como um oceano em disfarce

Eu não vivo para sempre

Você não pode me manter aqui

Eu quero correr com o pôr-do-sol

Eu quero um último hálito que eu não deixei de fora

Perdoe todo ser

Os maus sentimentos, apenas eu

Eu não vou esperar por respostas

Você não pode me manter aqui

Eu quero subir e dizer boa noite

Eu quero dar uma olhada no outro lado

Eu vivi todas essas vidas

Foi maravilhoso à noite

Eu viverei para sempre

Você não pode me manter aqui

I love how this song builds but never really explodes. They pull it back just in time. Its' strength lies in its' restraint. A younger PJ might not have pulled that off. 


For me the bass line emphasizes this the best, it's incredible.

Jovana Kocić

Quite a sexy song may I say


pop gun The old PJ finds chunks of young PJ in its stool


you can almost feel the water of the ocean touching you... epic song

+pop gun Great on the mark comment.


Song is great, and really meaningful. I'd fancy myself a philosopher, and I really like the deep aspects of most of their songs. Every time I hear this song, it brings up goosebumps at one part or another.

Best darn song from best darn rock group.


I got into Pearl Jam through this album and it's songs. And going through their other albums this is still my favourite. Great music with lyrics that provoke thought. We need more of this!!!
