"Don't Let Go (Love)" as written by Milt Gabler and Bert Kaempfert....
What's it gonna be
'Cause I can't pretend
Don't you want to be more than friends
Hold me tight and don't let go
Don't let go
Have the right to loose control
Don't let go

I often tell myself
That we could be more than just friends
I know you think that if we move to soon
It would all end
I live in misery when you're not around
And I won't be satisfied 'till we're taking those vows
There'll be some lovemaking, heartbreaking, soul shaking
Oh, lovemaking, heartbreaking, soul shaking

What's it gonna be
'Cause I can't pretend
Don't you want to be more than friends
Hold me tight and don't let go
Don't let go
Have the right to loose control
Don't let go

I often fantasize
The stars above are watching you
They know my heart and speak to yours
Like only lovers do
If I could wear your clothes
I'd pretend I was you and lose control
There'll be some lovemaking, heartbreaking, soul shaking
Oh lovemaking, heartbreaking, soul shaking, oh yeah

What's it gonna be
'Cause I can't pretend
Don't you want to be more than friends
Hold me tight and don't let go
Don't let go
Have the right to loose control
Don't let go

Running in and out my life has got me so confused
You gotta make the sacrifice
Somebody's got to choose
We can make it if we try for the sake of you and I
Together we can make it right

What's it gonna be
'Cause I can't pretend
Don't you want to be more than friends
Hold me tight and don't let go
Don't let go
Have the right to loose control
Don't let go

    General CommentI love this song. I knew it reminded me of some movie. I kept catching that movie at the end and found out it was Set It Off. I still haven't caught that movie from the begining.

    General CommentThis song is so powerful. It has so much meaning and so much soul. I love how it takes about two friends becoming lovers and how they never want it to end. :)

    General CommentA Man's Secret Shame Song (One that he'll like but will never admit it for fear of persecution). I for one will say Don't Let Go is a 90's classic, a embodiment of RnB's better times with a sensual backing and guitar; moving rhythm, mood and emotion.

    Video clip is loaded with relics of the 80's/turn of the decade styling.

    Song meaning is pretty straight forward with no bits needing interpreting.
