Lyrics:

LETTING GO BY HANGING ON

I never wanted you to go away
But now you say you're leaving on Sunday.
I promise I won't put up a fight
If you promise to stay one more night.
Pretend you still want me until the dawn
Maybe I can let go by hanging on.
Pretend you still want me until the dawn
Maybe I can let go by hanging on.

I don't plan on sleeping for a long time
I've got to find a way to keep you mine.
I promise that you won't see me cry
If you promise not to let me die.
I don't want you to want to be gone
I'll try to let you go by hanging on.
I don't want you to want to be gone
I'll try to let you go by hanging on.

I want to live in the moment tonight
Live in that moment the rest of my life.
I promise you'll only see me smile
If you promise to stay for a while.
I just don't want you to really be gone
I'll try to let you go by hanging on.
I just don't want you to really be gone
I'll try to let you go by hanging on.

I just don't want to let you go
I want you to keep hanging on.

I just don't want you to let go.
I want you to keep hanging on.

I never wanted you to go away……..
