Coverinfo

Bruce covered the song only once:
 
2000-02-27 - BRYCE JORDAN CENTER, PENN STATE UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY PARK, PA

Private soundcheck and warm-up for the upcoming second leg of the tour. "I Can Only Give You Everything", "With A Girl Like You" and "Love Is All Around" were soundchecked and are all songs known to have been performed by The Troggs - perhaps the band was preparing for a guest appearance that never happened.

Lyrics

I can't give you more that what I got
You can't expect to get what I have not
I can only give you love until the sun goes down
I've to leave a little
But I try and I try, oh baby, you know that I
Can only give you everything, no no no no no no.
How can I get you to understand ?
But after all, I am just a man
You you you you you you you are on my mind to stand until the shadows come
I've to leave with little flower 'cause the purple's gone.
But I try and I try, oh baby, you know that I
Can only give you everything, no no no no no no, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
I'll do anything you want me to do
But I don't wanna know it's like we'll act to
No no no no no no no, don't ever go and leave me in this world alone
'Cause I'll be like a little child if I was on my own.
But I try and I try, oh baby, you know that I
Can only give you everything, no no no no no no no, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
