ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - You Keep Me Hangin' On

ARETHA FRANKLIN
"You Keep Me Hangin' On"

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

Set me free why don't cha babe
Get out of my life why don't cha babe
You don't really need me
But you keep me hanging on

Why do you keep a coming around
Playing with my heart
Why don't cha get out of my life
And let me make a brand new start
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me yeah

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

Get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
Because you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on

You say you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free
And now that you've got your freedom
You still wanna hold on to me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else

Why don't cha be a man about it and set me free
Now you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me - Hey, abusing me
Get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
Because you don't really love me
You just keep me hanging on
You don't really need me
You just keep me - hanging on

I wanna sleep that night
Go away!
