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

This is the kind of band that will get a cult following in 30 years and kids will say they were born in the wrong generation

Never got to see them live together as they werent on my radar back then. But I saw Pete live with only him and an acoustic guitar and it was absolutely incredible. Met him briefly before the show started at a bar, he was hammered but still played and sang perfectly.

It's been almost 20 years since the early '00s indie/garage rock got popular. A revival is right around the corner, so I think you're right. there will be a new generation of young'uns getting into guitar rock and discovering the Libertines for the first time.

I take it you've never been to 1 of their concerts then? Most insane thing I've ever experienced 🤩👌

Remember kids - if a stranger offers you heroin... Say thankyou because drugs are expensive.
