You always hated the way I lived
You never wanted the things I had to give
But still something keeps you holding on

Leaving me is something only you can do
I'll never be the one to say we're through
But if you play the game, I'm gonna play the fool

You're holding onto me like a keepsake
Holding onto me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go
Oh oh, baby let me go

You keep my love in a little box
I tried to pick the lock but
You keep me hiding out behind your closet door

Tell me why you have to treat me so unkind
You keep me outta sight and outta your mind
Come on and open me up, I can't take it no more

You're holding onto me like a keepsake
Holding onto me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go, yeah
Oh oh, baby let me go

When you try to touch my soul
Your fingertips are always cold
Am I just your souvenir?
You buried me like treasure
Then forgot you left me here

Holding onto me like a keepsake
Holding onto me like a keepsake
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go

Holding onto me like a keepsake
Maybe you love me but it's too late
Why won't you give my heart a break
And just let me go
Oh oh, baby let me go
Oh oh, let me go
