More Than I Can Do
Steve Earle Lyrics

I'm trying hard to let you go
But it's more than I can do
And every day or two
I wind up right back where I started

I'm trying not to let you know
That I'm still in love with you
I can't just sit home blue
'Cause there ain't no rest for the brokenhearted
Just because you won't unlock your door
That don't mean you don't love me anymore
So I'm never gonna let you go no matter what you do
Because you know it's more than I can do

You told me that I got to stop
But it's more than I can do
And that ain't nothing new
'Cause we both know that I'm crazy 'bout you

You said you're gonna call the cops
But I ain't gonna run
'Cause you're the only one
There ain't no way I could live without you

You left me just when I needed you
So l ain't even close to through with you
So I'm never gonna let you go no matter what you do
Because you know it's more than I can do

Love love Steve Earle ...‼️👍👍🔥🌟👌


That awkward moment when you realize the uptempo, happy sounding song you're singing along with is about a stalker.

Michael Hall

@Skybluewarrior I think it's about someone who refuses to accept when a relationship is over and that things end and no longer is this love but persecution. One person can't be in the relationship it has to be mutual. But it took me years to figure this song out. because it seems so happy . Great song by the great Steve Earle.


Overkill? He sings about someone who does'nt care about if she's calling the cops. It's pretty obvious if you listen to the song.

Stalker...... I don't get that from the song that's overkill , it's about someone so in love they just can't give up , Stalker ???? That's twisted and weird and shallow on your part , probably a reason you see it the way you do bless your heart

Tim Fergel

Yes, it reminds me of a couple of bad trailer park romances that I was told about. Nobody involved were upstanding people to begin with.

Old Joy

DShiflet01 I think about that every time I listen to this song

Pasquale Pape

Another great Steve Earle number and very Beatlesque.
