    Lyrics:
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I'm in Toronto and I got this view
    But I might as well be in a hotel room, yeah
    It doesn't matter 'cause I'm so consumed
    Spending all my nights reading texts from you
    Oh, I'm good at keepin' my distance
    I know that you're the feelin' I'm missing
    You know that I hate to admit it
    But everything means nothin' if I can't have you
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I'm so sorry that my timing's off
    But I can't move on if we're still gonna talk
    Is it wrong for me to not want half?
    I want all of you, all the strings attached
    Oh, I'm good at keepin' my distance
    I know that you're the feelin' I'm missing
    You know that I hate to admit it
    But everything means nothin' if I can't have you
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I'm trying to move on
    Forget you, but I hold on
    Everything means nothing
    Everything means nothing, babe
    I'm trying to move on
    Forget you, but I hold on
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you, no
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
    I can't write one song that's not about you
    Can't drink without thinkin' about you
    Is it too late to tell you that
    Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

    That was a great performance. Shawn can perform the same song over and over and each time is always something different and special. It's why I love watching him perform live, it's such an experience. The guy is crazy talented and inspires me more than you'll ever know. We just covered "If I Can't Have You" on my channel, hope you will watch it. I can't wait to hear what Shawn comes up with next.

    His voice is so pure and I love how this man actually sings during every performance. He won’t be one of those lip syncers ever cuz he too passionate and those people who say that he does that have no life cuz he doesn’t.

    En serio lo amo tanto y me pone orgullosa al ver como a crecido, todavía recuerdo como era antes parecía un pequeño bebé con miedo al pararse en frente de todos y cantar por primera vez en un escenario, recuerdo su aspecto y me da mucha felicidad ver todo lo que a conseguido por su esfuerzo y el apoyo que a tenido, porque pienso que se lo merece ya que es un ser hermoso, inteligente, tierno, amistoso y con un corazón gigante, es una persona que se merece esto y mucho más, se que seguirá creciendo en su carrera y tendrá todo el apoyo tanto de su familia, fans, y amigos. En serio me llena de orgullo y no puedo creer que esa persona tan pequeña con miles de inseguridades, que veía cantar covers se convertiría en ese famoso y bello cantante canadiense del que toda chica está enamorada, quién diría que ese pequeño chico de Toronto algún día se convertiría en el exitoso ídolo de millones de personas en el mundo , entre ellas yo, Shawn eres tan lindo, no puedo evitar quererte y aunque no entiendas este comentario ya que está en español, lo escribiré porque no puedo evitar decir esto sobre ti eres maravilloso, nunca lo olvides, por más terrible que te sientas, recuerda siempre que eres increíble y que mereces todo lo que as conseguido :'3
    Atentamente: Nati 6 3 6
