  • My heart starts breaking
    When I think of making up
    Plans to let you go
    I keep thinking maybe tomorrow
    I'm gonna let you know
    But when I think about leaving
    I think about losing
    The only love I ever knew
    Every time I think of you

    My heart starts aching
    My hands keep shaking
    And you know, you know, you know

    It would take a strong, strong man
    To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
    To ever let you go

    My heart's been hurting
    When I see you flirting
    Every night out on the floor
    I keep thinking maybe tomorrow
    You'l grow to love me more
    But whenever we're together
    I could leave you never
    Even though you treat me cruel
    Every time I look at you

    My heart starts aching
    My hands keep shaking
    And you know, you know, you know

    It would take a strong, strong man
    To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
    To ever let you go

    I tried to resist you
    When you're gone, all I ever do is miss you
    Anyone in love would know
    Anyone with half a heart
    Could never let you go

    But when I think about leaving
    I think about losing
    The only girl I ever loved
    Can't you tell me why do you hurt me
    I guess some people never see
    Especially a fool like me

    My heart starts aching
    My hands keep shaking
    And you know, you know, you know

    It would take a strong, strong man
    To ever let you go
    To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
    I'll never let you go Writer/s: MATTHEW JAMES AITKEN, PETER ALAN WATERMAN, MICHAEL STOCK
