Mariah Carey – Can't Let Go lyrics

There you are holding her hand
I am lost
Dying to understand
Didn't I cherish you right?
Don't you know you were my life?

Even though I try
I can't let go
Something in your eyes
Captured my soul
And every night I see you in my dreams
You're all I know
I can't let go

Just cast aside
You don't even know I'm alive
You just walk on by
Don't care to see me cry
And here I am
Still holding on
I can't accept
My world is gone
No, no


Do you even realize the sorrow I have inside
Everyday of my life?
Do you know the way it feels
When all you have just dies?
I try and try to deny that I need you
But still you remain on my mind

Oh no I just can't get you out of my mind
I never can say goodbye
And every night
I see you in my dreams
You're all I know
I can't let you go

Even though I try
I can't let go
Of something that I need so badly
You're all I know
I can't let go

    Used to be my favourite mariah song until the time came when it had so much relevence to my life. It sums up my life completely tho I hate to admit it. Even tho I ended it numerous times as he couldn't which I know she knows. I couldn't take the doubt she'd planted about me in his head. Didn't see the point in delayin the inevitable! But that's my only consolation. Retribution never comes.
