“How Can I?”
Artist: Steve Hackett
Albums: Please Don't Touch (1978)

The local radio
Says sorry time to go
But I don't sleep too well
Where are those Southern Belles

Tryin' to get a telephone line
Through South Caroline
Your call may bring somebody down
For miles around
I'm watching her eyes again
I won't use no fountain pen

The lady isn't here
The message wasn't clear
She left an hour ago
Screamed from the floor below

Mother nature never gives in
She wants you to sing
But how can I go on
Just singing this song
My car's out of gas again
Hurry home to see my friend
Mmm

Money won't help you to win
A new look at things
Loving can bring
You down so you fall
Then why do you still try
To get up at all
Your good and bad side showing through
Problems are a part of you

You must love someone else
Or face life by yourself
You may expect a call
She's waiting in the hall

See the garden grows and it grows
Nobody else knows
And you can wear just any old thing
The show can begin
I'm falling asleep to dream
No more hills to climb it seems

Money won't help you to win
A new look at things
You never give in
So why don't you sing
But how can I go on
Just singing this song
My car's out of gas again
I'll be home to see my friend
