Maren Morris’s Single — “I Can’t Love You Anymore”

Sending out a thought, a note, a lyric, on a cloud of perfect notes, with a clarity that achieves true romance is a special gift that Maren Morris has always had. Her single, “I Can’t Love You Anymore” puts that talent on display yet again. The track is off of her latest album (on the Columbia Nashville label), Humble Quest, and it is a reminder that sometimes the more seemingly simple song can achieve the greatest performance.

It’s a song that allows Maren Morris to share, rather than just sing. Since she co-wrote it (along with Ryan Hurd and Greg Kurstin), it comes as no surprise that every note and every word is natural and inevitable. Look for the sweet, breezy song to hit radio airplay on September 26, 2022, and linger there, thoughtfully, for a nice long time.

If you feel like singing along, here are the lyrics:

Shoulda known what I was getting in
Fallin’ for a boy from Michigan
You love your mom like every Midwest kid
You like driving to Texas
You put up with all my exes
To deserve you, don’t know what the hell I did

I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you any more than I do now
You can try to talk me down
But I can say without a doubt
I can’t love you any more than I do now

Bring me coffee every morning
You’re fun even when you’re boring
And you like me even when I’ve been a bitch
You watch me while I’m gettin’ ready
You lighten up my heavy
You’re so good lookin’ it kinda makes me sick

I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you any more than I do now
You can try to talk you down
But I can say without a doubt
I can’t love you any more than I do now, aye, aye

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

You’re the angel to my devil
The pot to my kettle
To some I might be an acquired taste
You tell me I’m your favorite person
Hey, what we’ve got is working
And the years have only made it more that way

I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you anymore
I can’t love you any more than I do now
You can try to talk me down
But I can say without a doubt
I can’t love you any more than I do now

Heaven knows that I’ve attempted
Couldn’t even put a dent in
I can’t love you any more than I do now
