Don't Let Go (Album Version)

Don't Let Go (Album Version)

Eric Benét

[Verse 1]
Now the heat of love feels like it's starting to cool
I hear the bells, but they don't ring the way they used to
It's like breaking up is our next obvious move
But let's not move too soon, oh, no

See, the problem going 'round too often these days
People throwing in the towel once they pass the honeymoon phase
A stronger love awaits if we endure this pain
Or else we've been these years, cried these tears in vain (I'm saying)

[Chorus]
Don't let go (That's all I'm saying)
Don't let go (Ooh, girl let's stop playing)
Don't let go (Think of all the love we've been making)
Don't let go (Don't let it go)

[Verse 2]
I've worked your patience, girl and you've been working my nerves
We scream at each other, but we're not hearing one word
We've made mistakes that neither one of us deserves
Leaving much desired where I was concerned

I saw an old man and his wife early today
They were holding hands, his eyes locked in her gaze
Think of all the times they came so close to parting ways
In my mind, I could hear him say, "Stay, babe."

Don't let go (I could hear him say)
Don't let go (Don't throw the love away)
Don't let go (Aren't we worth it, baby?)
Don't let go (Don't let it go)

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
With some other girl, I could move on
Trading old problems just for new
To some other guy, you could belong
Going through changes we've been through

When another brother is trying to make a play
Don't you let go
When another woman jumps in my face
I will not let go
When the honeymoon starts fading away
I won't let go
If we're gonna make it I want to hear you say
I swear I won't let go.

[Chorus]
