You Cannot
words and music by erin mckeown

you cannot cage me i revolt
you cannot contain me i bolt
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold

at the beginning
at the wilderness
the wildness was obvious
from the moment you saw me
you should have known
in the dirty snow
holding my own

you cannot cage me i revolt
you cannot contain me i bolt
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold

i wouldnt dare me so dont
you cannot will me i wont
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold hold

hold hold

i cant help pinching an audience
this naughtiness
is glorious
you love me because of this
this wildness
is tenderness
with every bite of my teeth
i’m showing you best
how i love you back
without bitterness

you cannot cage me i revolt
i you cannot contain me i bolt
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold

i wouldnt dare me so dont
you cannot will me i wont
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold

you cannot cage me i revolt
____i wouldnt dare me so dont
i you cannot contain me i bolt
____you cannot will me i wont
i am not caught because
what i got got
you cant hold hold hold
