Why Can't I Have You
by The Cars
#RIPRic

I was surfing social media last night while watching the new Ken Burns documentary on country music on PBS when I saw the sad news that Ric Ocasek, the frontman of The Cars, had been found dead in his New York City townhouse at the age of 75. The Cars were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.

"Why Can't I Have You" is from "Heartbeat City," The Cars' fifth studio album. It was written by Ocasek and was the fifth single off of the album. It peaked at no. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., and was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange.

Ric Ocasek - rhythm guitar, lead vocal; Ben Orr - bass, backing vocals; Elliot Easton - lead guitar, backing vocals; Greg Hawkes - keyboards, backing vocals, Fairlight CMI programming; and David Robinson - drums, Fairlight programming.

"dreamy lips set in motion flashing
breathless hush pounding soft lasting
glossy mouth taste untamed moving
carousel up and down
just like you

oh baby
just one more time to touch you
just one more time to tell you
you're on my mind
baby, why can't i have you
you're breaking my heart in two
you know what i'm going through
oh baby, why can't i have you

candy smile all the while glinting
your eyes like mica lethal pout hinting
felt the pressure tight and warm softly striking
i tripped and stumbled
i cling forever
i go all night

oh baby, just one more time to touch you
just one more time to tell you
i'm not so blind
baby, why can't i have you
it's breaking my heart in two
you know what i'm going through
oh baby, why can't i have you"

Enjoy!
