Can't Stand Me Now
The Libertines Lyrics


An ending fitting for the start
You twist and tore our love apart
Your light fingers threw the dark
Shattered the lamp and into darkness it cast us

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 a lot fuckin' harder now

If you wanna try
If you wanna try
There's no worse you could do
Uh oh oh

I know you lie
I know you lie
I'm still in love with you
Uh oh oh

Can't take me anywhere
I'll take you anywhere
You can't take me anywhere
I can't take you anywhere
I'll take you anywhere you wanna go

But oh, you can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now

Have we enough to keep it together?
Or do we just keep on pretending
And hope our luck is never ending now
You tried to pull the wool, I wasn't feeling too clever
And you take all that they're lending
Until you need amending now

If you wanna try
If you wanna try
There's no worse you could do
Uh oh oh

I know you lie
All you do is make me cry
All these words they ain't true

I can't take me anywhere
I can take you anywhere
You can't take me anywhere
I will take you anywhere
I'll take you anywhere you want to go

But oh, you can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now

You can't stand me now (you can't stand me now)
You can't stand me, no, you can't stand me now
You can't stand me now, you can't stand me now
No, you can't stand me now

No oh oh
You can't stand me now
Oh oh oh

A true shame that Pete and Carl couldn't work it out. During their too-short time together, they produced some of the greatest music in rock history. PLEASE COME BACK LIBERTINES!

Bellephus

The boys are back.

Pete Doherty is so incredible and so under-rated. The immense talent of the Libertines is under-rated in general. I love this band so much.

Bobby Jack

he was a junkie fuck

Dave not Doug

@CMcc As WC said - : "Democracy is the worst form of government – except for all the others that have been tried." I would agree that our government, and society, leaves a lot to be desired. But at least you, and I, can say that without fear of arrest (and worse). Long live our miserable, reactionary, class-based, self-serving democracy.

Should've been a defining moment in UK music but his actions didn't fit the establishments script so he was whitewashed, which is an experimental version of what we call 'cancelled' in todays Western 'democratic' society
