  • Lookin' back over my years
    I guessed, I've shed some tears
    Told myself time and time again
    This time I'm gonna win

    But another fight, things ain't right
    I'm losin' again
    Takes a fool to lose twice
    And start all over again

    Think I'd better let it go
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Oh, oh, oh,)
    Think I'd better let it go (What you think about it, girl), let it go, baby (Oh, yeah)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Mmm, mmm, mmm)

    Tried to take control of the love
    Love took control of me
    Cause you lose all thoughts, sense of time
    And have a change of mind

    Takin' the bumps and the bruises
    Of all the things of a two-time loser
    Tryin' to hold on, faith is gone
    It's just another sad song

    I think I'd better let it go (What you say about it?)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Oh, oh, ho, whoa, yes)
    I think I'd better let it go), let it go, baby (Oh, baby)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Mmm, hmm, oh, ho, oh)

    Oh, ho, whoa, ho,
    Ooh, hoo,
    Oh, ho, oh,
    Ooh, ooh,
    Mmm, mmm,

    Tried to take control of the love
    Love took control of me
    Cause you lose all thoughts, sense of time
    And have a change of mind

    Takin' the bumps and the bruises
    Of all the things of a two-time loser
    See I try to hold on, my faith is gone
    It's just another sad song

    And I think I'd better let it go (Let it go, let it go)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (I think I'd better)
    Think I'd better let it go, let it go, baby (If I know what's good for you, girl)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (I couldn't stand this pain much longer)

    Think I'd better let it go, let it go, baby (Whoa, oh, yeah)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Ooh, ooh, baby)
    (Oh, sometimes, sometimes I just feel like I wanna say)
    (I wanna say, mmm, mmm, )

    Cause it looks like another love T.K.O.
    (Tired of gettin' beat up by love)
    Think I'd better let it go, let it go, baby (Before it's too late, yeah)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Hey, ey, oh, yeah) (Mmm, hmm, mmm, hmm, mmm, hmm, mmm, hmm, )

    Think I'd better let it go (Yeah)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (Hey, yeah, whoa, I think I'd better)
    Think I'd better let it go (Let it go), let it go, baby (Oh, yeah)
    Looks like another (Yeah) love T.K.O.
    (Oh, they say love is better the second time around)

    Think I'd better let it go (I can't stand on my feet)
    Looks like another love T.K.O. (I'm falling down, no, 'cause, 'cause, 'cause)
    I think I'd better let it go (Let it go, baby) Writer/s: Cecil Womack, Gip Edward, Jr. Noble, Linda Womack

  • Markantney from BiloxeMay 2021,
    He should have several other songs on this site, at least the following:
    Turn Off the Lights
    Joy
    I Don't Love You Anymore
    Close the Door
    You're My Choice Tonight (Choose Me)
  • Lady P from Florida Amazing voice but you life left a huge impression on me... you will forever live in my heart.
  • Dave from Easton, PaR.I.P. Teddy. You were so "The Man" and Thank God your music goes on even though the lights are out!
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThe original version was done by David Oliver shortly before his untimely death (no known cause- probably suicide) in 1981
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdMichael McDonald recently recorded this. It's not really "a sad song" like it says in the lyrics
