I can't draw tonight baby,

I don't know what's wrong.

I can't paint tonight baby,

it won't come from your song.

I can't create tonight baby,

my expression is dead,

I can't sing tonight baby,

though things dance in my head.

Visions of color, and lovely designs,

trying to capture it, something's not right.

I know I'll break down if I try any more,

so tonight and for now, I'm an artist, not quite.

I can't play tonight baby,

I've been avoiding the thought,

I can't win tonight baby,

my dreams can't be caught.

I can't see tonight baby,

through my mind's cloudy mist,

I can't be tonight baby,

your music assist.

I've wanted to be there,

to keep up my skill.

But that won't be happening,

it won't come just by will.

I can't draw tonight baby,

I don't know what's wrong.

I can't paint tonight baby,

it won't come from your song.
