about

I Couldn’t Win
I Couldn’t Win was originally recorded by The Honeys, written by Andrea Croft and Gina’s former Flicker bandmate Bruce Begley. Our version is a tribute to Bruce who passed away in 2016. Bruce is one of the unsung legends of Australian music with a tremendous head for a melody and a world-weary perspective. Gina’s towering vocal is supported by backing vocals from her daughter Edie bringing a special magic to the chorus.

lyrics

I Couldn’t Win by Bruce Begley and Andrea Croft

Verse 1
I tried to call your name
It didn’t sound the same
Suddenly all my strength was gone

Verse 2
Felt just like yesterday
You were in my embrace
Now you’re a thousand miles away

Chorus
I couldn’t win
I couldn’t win, your love
I couldn’t win, your love

Verse 3
As sure as the stars are shining
And all of these years declining
So my hope is fading away

Repeat Chorus X 2
