{guitar intro on overmuted G-chord}
Oh I try and I try but I can't say goodbye.

Feel so bad, baby.
Oh, it hurts me
when think of how you lovin' desert me.
I'm the broken-hearted toy you play with, baby.

You got me going (I can't let go)
I need you, baby.
I can't let go, and I want you, baby (and I want you, baby)
I got a habit you know: I can't let go.

Though I'm just one of your lovers,
and I know there are so many others,
you do something strange to me, baby, baby, baby, baby.

You got me going (I can't let go)
I need you, baby.
I can't let go, and I want you, baby (and I want you, baby)
I got a habit you know: I can't let go.

{intro replayed}
I try and I try but I can't say goodbye.
Know that it's wrong and I should be so strong
but the thought of you gone makes me want to hold on.

{guitar interlude}

You got me going (I can't let go)
I need you, baby.
I can't let go, and I want you, baby (and I want you, baby)
I got a habit you know: I can't let go.

You got me going (I can't let go)
I need you, baby.
I can't let go, and I want you, baby (and I want you, baby)
I got a habit you know: I can't let go.

I can't let go.
I can't let go.
{fade out}
I can't let go.
I can't let go ...
