Stories Behind The Songs: Megan O’Neill on Without

Artist: Megan O’Neill

Song: Without

‘Without‘ is a sassy break-up song – directed at someone who is always halfway out the door and just not putting in the effort when you clearly are. I think we’ve all felt that at one stage or another in our lives so we pulled some inspiration between the three of us (co-writers – Jeff Cohen and Victoria Banks) for this one.

I feel like this is probably the most straight modern country track on the album – fun loving and a good one to dance to!”

Without is taken from Megan’s current EP Ghost Of You which can be purchased here

Lyrics

SAVE YOURSELF

CAUSE WE BOTH KNOW YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO CARE FOR ANYONE ELSE

BUT TIME, IS ALL WE GOT

AND YOU TOOK MINE WHILE I WAS TRYIN’ TO MAKE THIS SOMETHING THAT IT’S NOT

FOOL ME ONCE, FOOL ME TWICE

OUR BED OF ROSES WAS A BED OF LIES, AND

CHORUS:

IF I CAN’T HAVE YOU

YOU CAN’T HAVE ME

‘CAUSE IT’S ALL OR NOTHING AND THERE’S NOTHING IN BETWEEN

IF YOU’RE HALFWAY IN

I’M HALFWAY OUT

BABY WE CAN’T SHINE IN A SHADOW OF A DOUBT

I CAN’T LIVE WITH A LOVE YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT

WE ALL HAVE ONE

THAT ONE WHO HURTS THE ONE WHO SCARS THE ONE WHO SHOWS YOU WHO YOU ARE

BUT I’M STILL YOUNG

AND THANKS TO YOU AND ALL THESE TEARS I’M SO MUCH WISER THAN MY YEARS

FOOL ME ONCE, FOOL ME TWICE

YOU DON’T GET TO FOOL ME FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

CHORUS

FOOL ME ONCE FOOL ME TWICE

I GAVE YOU MY PAST BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE MY PRIDE

CHORUS

I CAN’T LIVE WITH A LOVE, I CAN’T LIVE WITH A LOVE

I CAN’T LIVE WITH A LOVE YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT
