Hollies I Can't Let Go Lyrics

Last updated: 08/20/2009 11:00:00 AM

(Taylor / Gorgoni)
Oh I try and I try but I can't say goodbye

Feel so bad, baby Oh, it hurts me
When I think of how you love and desert me
I'm the broken-hearted toy you play with, baby

You got me going I need you, baby
I can't let go, and I want you, baby
I gotta have you, you know, I can't let go

Though I'm just one of your lovers
And I know there are so many others
You do something strange to me, baby, baby

chorus

Oh I try and I try but I can't say goodbye
Know that it's wrong and I should be so strong
But the thought of you gone makes me want to hold on

chorus x2

I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go
I can't let go

Big British Explosion | Reviewer: Dave | 8/13/09

I was a young teenager in the US when the Hollies broke onto the music scene.
Although "I Can't Let Go" didn't chart as well as their big hits, to me it personifies the best of the British Invasion. Tight harmonies, a driving drum and bass line, and some strong guitar work, take me back to a point in 60's rock just on the cusp of psychedelia.
It was definitely a time of growing out of innocence, but still a kinder and gentler era.
