"Can't Shake You" is a song by Melanie Martinez. It was likely written for her original EP, which would have been an acoustic EP. This song hadn't been performed live or released to fans, although it was leaked on the December 29th, 2015 on SoundCloud.

Background

The leaker of the song said that this was originally intended for Cry Baby. However, it was more likely that, because of the sound, it was meant for her album that she had been writing before Cry Baby. The album would have been more acoustic pop oriented, and was completely finished before being scrapped.

Theme

The song is about Melanie not able to shake off a boyfriend. They no longer are completely in love, but Melanie just can't let him go. She's stuck to this relationship and can't simply get rid of it.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes love burns, sometimes it fades away
But in our case it lingers through the day
Just kickin' around
Just kickin' around

[Chorus]
And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when the spark has gone away?
And I can't shake you

[Verse 2]
I go, you stay, but things stay the same
We're two dreamers too afraid to change
Just stickin' around
Just stickin' around

[Chorus]
And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna waste another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you

[Bridge]
Cause when I count my blessings
I'm second guessing
You're on my mind and in my clothes
Under my skin

[Chorus]
And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you off, oh-oh, oh-oh
The love we have is lost, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I can't shake you
I don't really wanna wait another day
What's the point when this love has turned to gray?
And I can't shake you
