WHEN WILL YOU LET GO? (Robert J. Purvis)


You say you wanna leave me

Well that's all right, believe me

Tell me why, why you never go


At times you can't abide me

Won't even sit beside me

Tell me why, oh why, I wanna know


CHORUS:

When will you let go (when will you let go)?

You turn your back on me yet still you hang around

When will you let go (when will you let go)?

You're making fun of me and wasting your own time

As well as wasting mine


Sometimes you say you need me

And you'd be lost without me

But baby, I, I've heard it all before


'Cause when I crave affection

Well I only get rejection

Baby, I, I don't love you anymore


REPEAT CHORUS


When will you let go (when will you let go)?

You turn your back on me yet still you hang around

When will you let go (when will you let go)?
