Can't Let Her Get Away

Album: Dangerous (1991)
  • I thought she had to have it
    Since the first time she came
    Who knows the situation
    Mysteries do remain
    And now I wonder why
    I breakdown when I cry
    Is it something I said
    Or is it just a lie
    (is it just a lie)

    I try so hard to love you
    Some things take
    Time and shame
    I think the whole world
    Of you
    Your thoughts of me remain
    I'll play the fool for you
    I'll change the rules for you
    Just say it and I'll do
    Just make this thing come true
    (make a dream come true)

    If I let her get away
    Though I'm begging
    On my knees
    I'll be crying everyday
    Knowing the girl
    That got away

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get away

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get away

    I tried to mastermind it
    By saying let it be
    But every time I did it
    The hurt came back at me
    I told you that I need you
    A thousand times and why
    I played the fool for you
    And still you said goodbye
    (still you said goodbye)

    If I let her get away
    Then the world will
    Have to see
    A fool who lives alone
    And the fool who
    Set you free

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get away

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I've got the feelin'

    Can't let go
    Can't let go

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get away

    I can't let
    I can't let her get away
    I can't let
    I can't let her get awayWriter/s: MICHAEL JACKSON, TEDDY RILEY
