Oh I tried and I tried but I can't say good-bye
Feel so bad baby
Oh it hurts me
When I think of how you love and desert me
I'm the broken-hearted toy you play with

You got me going
I need you baby
I can't let go
And I want you baby
I gotta have all your love
I can't let go

Though I'm just one of your lovers
And I know there are so many others
You do something strange to me baby

You got me going
I need you baby
I can't let go
And I want you baby
I gotta have all your love
I can't let go

Oh I tried and I tried but I can't say good-bye
I know that it's wrong and I should be so strong
But the thought of you gone
Makes me want to hold on

You got me going
I need you baby
I can't let go
And I want you baby
I gotta have all your love
I can't let go

You got me going
I need you baby
I can't let go
And I want you baby
I gotta have all your love
I can't let go

I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
