(Yeah, Oh, Yeah)

You always hated the way I live
You never wanted the things I had to give
But still there's something that keeps you holding on
Leavin' me is something only you can do
I'll never be the one to say we're through
But if you play the game
I'm gonna play the fool

(Chorus)
Your holding on to me like a keepsake
Holding on to me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go
Whoa, whoa-oowhoa
Oh, oh
Baby let me go

You keep my love in a little box
I tried to pick the lock
But you keep my hidin' out behind your closet door
Tell me why you got to treat me
So unkind, you keep me
Out of sight and out of your mind
Come on and open me up
I can't take it no more

(Chorus)
Your holding on to me like a keepsake
Holding on to me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go
Yeah, yeah-eahh
Oh, oh
Baby let me go

(Bridge)
When you try to touch my soul
Your fingertips are always cold
And my --- souvenir
You buried me like treasure
Then forgot you left me here

(Chorus)
Holding on to me like a keepsake
Holding on to me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go

Holding on to me like a keepsake
Maybe you love me but it's too late
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go
Whoa, whoa-oaahh

Oh, oh
Baby let me go

Oh, oh
Let me go
