Rainbow Can't Let You Go Lyrics

Last updated: 01/26/2014 07:10:21 PM

[Blackmore/Turner]

[Intro-Rosenthal]

Day after day I keep waking up
To find that you're slipping away
Night after night
I can't fight the emptiness inside
Nothing I can say
Now I know you're turning me away
You're wearing a disguise
You don't have to hide cause
The truth is in your eyes tonight

I don't want to live a lie
But I don't want to say goodbye
And I can't let you go even though it's over
I just can't let you go
Though your love is growing colder

One look in my eyes and you're realize
That you got my heart in your hands
Won't you let me know sometimes more
Where did we do wrong?

I don't want to fight
All I want to do is try to understand
I'm reaching out for you baby
What can I do
I've been holding on so long

I don't want to live a lie
But I don't want to say goodbye
I can't let you go
Even though it's over
I just can't let you go
I feel your love is growing colder

I don't want to live a lie
But I don't want to say goodbye
I want you by my side
And I can't let you go
Even though it's over
I just can't let you go
I feel your love is growing colder
I can't let you go even though it's over

superb hard-rock type ballad | Reviewer: ratfink | 1/26/14

rainbow is an absolute study in late 70's hard rock. crimminally underrated by a million miles.always great musicians.genius guitar player since pre-purple days right up to the present.early 70's ritchie blackmore was already miles ahead of the pack.it was always about the song which is testimony to the talent and ideas that were developed at the time.fender strat and marshall amp continuing hendrix's legacy.study it all from a time that will probably never be surpassed or ever forgotten.

Possibly the best Rainbow song | Reviewer: Flash | 10/25/12

Listened to Rainbow in the 70s, 80s, 90s, yeah and the last 12 years. I always thought they were underrated and loved Dio and Joe Lynn Turner. This song was always my favorite although they had a bunch of kick-ass songs.

Amazing song | Reviewer: j24 | 1/31/10

After splitting with my girlfriend, this song reflects exactly how I feel, down to each word and im sure for so many others its extremely relevant.It sums up how I dont want to let go of the times we had and I want them back, but I know it will never be the same and im fighting a lost cause.

Rainbow are such an amazing band - Blackmore is a god.


Great song | Reviewer: Ed Hunter | 6/19/07

I think that this is one of the best love songs that I've ever listened
