"Hanging on too long" as written by Francis Anthony Eg White, Aimee Ann Duffy and James Dearness Hogarth....
It was just my mistake
Thinking you cared
It was just my mistake
Thinking you'd be there
That you'd be by my side
And that you wouldn't lie
My mistake

It was just my false hope
Thinking we'd last, yeah
It was just my false hope
Forgot all your pests
All those girls you denied
Smashed up hearts hung out to dry

[Chorus]
I know it's wrong
Hanging on too long
I know it's wrong
Hanging on too long

But I beat 'em all
Hanging on too long

I was a fool for you
Right from the start, yeah
I was a fool for you
Hoping for a spark
For some kind of sign
That you would be mine

[Chorus]

My heart was clutching
To one fair right
My head was pumping
It could put up a fight

[Chorus]

And I need to move on
I'm hanging on too long

[Chorus]

    General CommentWrong lyrics in the seventh stanza.

    "My heart was clutching
    to what felt right.
    My head was hoping
    it could put up a fight."

    General Commentthis song is really starting to grow on me.
    it's obviously about a girl who finally realises that she won't be able to make her relationship work, that the guy she's with will never love her and care for her, and that she needs to move on. very nice song!

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. It's really moved me lately as it totally speaks about my own relationship.
