It Won't Let Go

  • Sittin' on the floor on my bedroom cryin'
    Tears like rain on roof top
    Scars on my heart from the war I've been fightin'
    And I pray like hell but the pain won't stop

    And you know that the boy you love keeps lettin' you down
    And the boy you love is killin' you right now
    And the boy you love keeps runnin' around
    You got two eyes but you see you
    And it ain't blind but you don't leave

    I tried to walk away, I tried to leave him before
    Threw it all in an old suitcase got as far as a front door
    No it ain't no perfect love
    It's all that I've ever known
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    So tight that it won't let go
    It won't let go
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    And it won't let go

    Small town girl, small town options
    Like a rhythm from a kept song from the radio
    Your heart's kept the beat and the beat hadn't stopped
    But this ain't jackin' on aim
    Gotta lettin' go
    Ain't jackin' on aim
    Gotta lettin' go

    I tried to walk away, I tried to leave him before
    Threw it all in an old suitcase got as far as a front door
    No it ain't no perfect love
    It's all that I've ever known
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    So tight that it won't let go
    It won't let go
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    And it won't let go

    And you know that the boy you love keeps lettin' you down
    And the boy you loveit's killin' you right now
    And the boy you love keeps runnin' the round
    I tried away, I try o leave him before
    Got as far as the front door

    I tried to walk away, I tried to leave him before
    Threw it all in an old suitcase got as far as a front door
    No it ain't no perfect love
    It's all that I've ever known
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    So tight that it won't let go
    It won't let go
    My heart still holdin' on tight
    And it won't let go Writer/s: DANNY MYRICK, MICHAEL JAMES GOSSIN, TOM GOSSIN
