You Keep Me Hanging On
by Lisa Stansfield

Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out my life why don't cha baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on
you don't really need me
You just keep me hanging on

Why do you keep comin' 'round
Playing with my heart
Why don't cha get out of my life
And let me make a new start
Let me get over you the way you've gotten over me

Yeah

Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out my life why don't cha baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on
you don't really need me
You just keep me hanging on

You say although we broke up
You still want to be just friends
How can we be friends
If seeing you only breaks my heart again

Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out my life why don't cha baby
Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out my life why don't cha baby

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul need to be free
Now that you've got your freedom
You want to still hold onto me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me love somebody else

Why don't cha be a man abouti
And set me free
You don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
So go on get out get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
'Cause you don't really love me

You just keep me hanging on

Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out my life why don't cha baby
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on
you don't really need me
You just keep me hanging on

'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on
