I know we’re past tense
Its been a minute since
We were a couple
And, walking and holding hands
Kisses and I love you’s
Doing what lovers do
Baby
But baby that was then
Cause now we don't
Talk no more
You’ve got a new man
And, it shouldn't bother me
But girl it's driving me, crazy
And everybody says
Boy why don't you just leave it alone
But I don't think I can

[Chorus]
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I
Don’t think I can let go (Don't think I can let you go)
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I (Can let go)

I’m holding on to hope
I know it's foolish though
Thinking that someday she might come back
Wish on it all the time
Knowin' it never may happen
But see I'm not a fool
'cause now we don't
Talk no more
You got a new man and
But, I'm gonna keep it safe
I've got the patience
That some lack...
But everybody says
Boy why don't you just leave it alone
But I don't think I can

[Chorus]
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I
Don’t think I can let go (Said I don't think that I can let you go)
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I (That I)
Can let go

[Interlude]
I don't think that I can let you go
I can't let you go
Oh no....
I don't think that I can let go
Let go...
And everybody saaaaaays... Hey
And I don't think I can

[Chorus (With Ad-Libs)]
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I
Don’t think I can let go (I don't think that I can let you go)
I sit up all night
Thinkin' bout ya
And I know it ain’t right, baby
But I don't
I don't think that I can let go

    The point of the song is,
    he loved a girl,
    she went away,
    he cant even let her go,
    hes so sad,
    he can't stop thinkin about her,
    noone else is supporting him thro it,
    they are tellin him to forget about her,
    i feel the same way,
    if my gf left i cant let go.
