Diana Ross – You Keep Me Hangin' On lyrics

Set me free, why don't cha, babe
Get out my life, why don't cha, babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep on coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

Hey, set me free, why don't cha, babe
Let me be, why don't cha, babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
Now you don't really want me
You just keep me hangin' on

You say although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again
And there ain't nothing I can do about it

Whoa oh oh, set me free, why don't cha, babe
Whoa oh oh, get out my life, why don't cha, babe
Set me free, why don't cha, babe
Get out my life, why don't cha, babe

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free
And now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else, hey hey

Why don't you be a man about it
And set me free?
Now you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
Go on, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night, please
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
