lyrics

It can't be done
Though some have tried
To beat the odds, to turn the tide
I know you thought you were the one
But it can't be done

It can't be had
This promised land
You can't keep everything that falls into your hand
You walked for forty years
Well, that's too bad
It can't be had

The bright side says you're lucky you survived
But it seems joy is in the journey that's arrived
And if you knew you'd lose the race
Would you still run?
Would you still run?

It can't be won
I wish I'd known
I was okay living my days out on my own
Well, that's a lie, but this is truer than the sun
It can't be won

So let's just call this mess another lesson learned
There's no reaping, there's no keeping what we've earned
And if I knew I'd have to leave
Why did I come?
Why did I come?

It can't be done
Though I have tried
To beat the odds, to turn the tide
I guess I thought I was the one
