Lyrics


You see it all around you

Good lovin' gone bad

And usually it's too late when you

Realize what you had


And my mind goes back to a girl I left

Long years ago who told me


Just hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly

You're gonna lose control


Your baby needs someone to believe in

And a whole lot of space to breathe in


It's so damn easy

When your feelings are such

To overprotect her

To love her too much


And my mind goes back to a girl I left

Long years ago who told me


Just hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly

You're gonna lose control


Your baby needs someone to believe in

And a whole lot of space to breathe in


Don't let her slip away

Sentimental fool

Don't let your heart get in the way

Yeah, yeah, yeah


You see it all around you

Good lovin' gone bad

And usually it's too late when you

Realize what you had


So hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly

You're gonna lose control


Your baby needs someone to believe in

And a whole lot of space to breathe in


So hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly

You're gonna lose it

You're gonna lose control


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


So hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly

You're gonna lose control


Hold on loosely

But don't let go

If you cling too tightly to her

You're gonna lose control, yeah, yeah, yeah
