Push my back so I make sure
You're right behind me as before
Yesterday the night before tomorrow

Dry my eyes so you won't know
Dry my eyes so I won't show
I know you're right behind me

And don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight

You walk the surface of this town
The high heels above the ground
And high horses that we know
Keep us safe until the night

You know them all, I know it all
Stay put and play along
'Cause I'm looking for my friend
Now I got you, got you

Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight

I dry my eye, dry my eye
Dry my eye, dry my eye
Dry my eye...
Dry my eye, dry my eye
Dry my eye, dry my eye
Dry my eye...

Yeah,
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight

Let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go
Let me go, let me go

    I think in a round about way she is speaking for all women whom have been walked out on and abandoned in more than just the literal sense of the word, (i. E. Physical, mental, emotional, etc.) and how some of us have used our sexuality in order to feel wanted or whole. I think some of us, [women] weren't fortunate enough to grow up with a father that let us know that we were their little princess, and that our bodies are temples, and that we didn't need a man to validate us as women. I think the 1st verse she is talking about a woman smothering a man and clinging to him out of fear of him leaving. I think the 2nd verse is almost that of a prostitutes perspective on that particuler lifestyle and how she may have gotten to that point in her life.
