Can't Stay Away From You
Gloria Estefan & The Miami Sound Machine Lyrics


"Time flies when you're having fun"
I heard somebody say
But if all I've been is fun then baby let me go
Don't wanna be in your way

And I don't wanna be your second choice
Don't wanna be just your friend
You keep telling me that you're not in love
You wanna throw it all away
But I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me, that's true
There's just some things I can't control

Your love is slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

Hold on to every bit of hope that's all I ever do
Hoping you might change
Your mind and call me up
To say how much you need me too

And though you're leaving me no other choice
Than to turn and walk away
Look over your shoulder, I'll be there
You can count on me to stay

'Cause I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me, that's true
There's just some things I can't control

Your love slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

When my boyfriend went back to Greece in 1989 and told me that he wasn’t coming back, I listened to this song over and over again. Turns out he couldn’t stay away from me either. He came back, and we were married 2 years later. Just celebrated our 28th anniversary a couple of weeks ago. :)

In my opinion, this is her best slow song/ballad. It should have hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100, the kind of song that should have won a Grammy. It's very beautiful and sad at the same time. I think everyone can relate to this song. Loving someone who doesn't feel the same way is something that most people have probably experienced in life.

Yes I can totally relate to her! I’ve been feeling this way for the past month or so.
