Can't Let Go

  • There you are holding her hand
    I am lost
    Dying to understand
    Didn't I cherish you right
    Don't you know you were my life

    [Chorus]
    Even though I try I can't let go
    Something in your eyes
    Captured my soul
    And every night I see you in my dreams
    You're all I know
    I can't let go

    Just cast aside
    You don't even know I'm alive
    You just walk on by
    Don't care to see me cry
    And here I am
    Still holding on
    I can't accept
    My world is gone

    [Chorus]

    Do you even realize the sorrow I have inside
    Everyday of my life
    Do you know the way it feels
    When all you have just dies
    I try and try to deny that I need you
    But still you remain on my mind

    No I just can't get you out of my mind
    I never can say goodbye
    'Cause every night
    I see you in my dreams

    You're all I know
    I can't let you go
    Even though I try
    I can't let go of something I need so badly
    You're all I know
    I can't let go Writer/s: WALTER AFANASIEFF, MARIAH CAREY
