Michael Bolton - You Keep Me Hanging On Lyrics

Set me free, why don't you, babe?
Get out my life, why don't you, babe?
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
You don't really need me
You just keep me hangin' on

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

Set me free, why don't you, baby?
Get out my life, why don't you, babe? (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
You don't really need me
You just keep me hangin' on

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


Set me free, why don't you, babe?
Get out my life, why don't you, babe? (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

You claim you still care about me
But your heart and soul need to be free
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, hey

Just let me be a man about it
Just set me free (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
You don't care a thing about me
You're just using me (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
Go on, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

You don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on

Set me free, why don't you, baby?
Get out my life, why don't you, babe? (Ooh-ooh-ooh)

Michael Bolton You Keep Me Hanging On Comments
  1. Doomsday Library

    This was a very emotional movie for me. it stuck with me for 15 days straight (I counted from the day I purchased the film and watched it at the same time, 10 seconds later). Up in my mind it stayed the entire time, listening to 'Keep Me Hanging On' the 1967 version Vanilla Fudge over 100 times, watching video clips. I also agree that is it is, in part, a love letter to a long gone Los Angeles but the undertone is melancholy and a sadness permeates throughout the film. This came out of QT's mind and I feel he has a longing to return to those days, even if for a brief moment during a 3 hour journey via cinema. He wanted the world to see and feel what he did as a kid but through the eyes of an adult man. QT with another brilliant script btw I mean what the fuck? 9 for 9. True Romance is in my top 3 all time films, you own the top and other spot btw. QT if you ever read this, I have an incredible idea to share with you. Tell me how to share it privately to one of your people ([email protected]). I saw Pulp Fiction in a movie theater with my father. I took him after I went to see it with my friends. Then I took a date a week later. You are my generations Einstein of Film and have a constant with me through the years into adulthood. Thank you sir.

  2. MadDuarte Br

    The best scene!

  3. Ron Allman

    This dude is the best Tex of any movie involving Manson


    Watch Mindhunter

  4. Ron Allman

    Fried Sadie

  5. Offend in every way

    “You are real, right?”

  6. The Wild One

    You know what would have been even better plot twist in this alternative universe? Hippies go to Polanski's house but Bruce Lee is also crashing there for a night..

  7. Graham Paterson

    My elderly parents visited me from Scotland, and wanted something to do one Friday evening. I had mentioned I wanted to see the new Tarantino film and my mother was enthusiastic since Brad Pitt was in it. My fathers never been one for cinema however we all went to a late night showing. My lass gave it a miss as she had had a long day at work and didn't relish a 3 hour movie stint. They were taken with scene and setting, music and references since they were teenagers when the film was set. Knowing what Tarantino was like I was rather dreading any sexual innuendo or extreme violence throughout as my parents are sensitive souls. When this scene played out my parents were roaring with laughter along with everyone else in the showing. It's something I will never forget and after 35 years I hadn't thought there would be any way we could further bond. In a strange way I want Tarantino to know that he's made a complete movie for everyone. Its damn timeless.

    Muffler noise grows louder and louder as the car drives further up the hill of Cielo Drive.

    Rick (holding a pitcher of frozen margaritas): Goddamn. Fucking private road. Damn property taxes up the butt. Goddamn.

    Rick grows closer to the window and puts out his cigarette. He opens the blinds.

    Rick: bunch of goddamn fucking hippies. What the fuck?!

    Rick moves quickly over to the door. He opens it fiercely. He looks from his porch over to the car.

    Rick: Hey, you! Yeah, asshole! I’m talking to you.

    He walks over to the car.

    Rick: What the hell do you think you’re doing brining that noisy hunk of shit around here at midnight?! This is a private road, all right?! Who are you, and who are you here to see?!

    The driver, Tex Watson, peels his head out the car window to talk to Rick.

    Tex: Nobody, sir, we just got lost and a little turned around.

    Rick: Aw, horseshit!

    Rick gets close to the window.

    Rick: you fucking hippies came up here to smoke dope on a dark road, huh? Next time you want to try that, fix your fucking muffler!

    Tex: Look, sir. We’re really sorry we disturbed you.

    Rick: Look, chief, you don’t belong here. Now take this mechanical asshole, and GET IT OFF MY FUCKING STREET!!

    Rick takes a gulp from his pitcher of frozen margaritas. He begins to walk back to his door. The car doesn’t move. The red-head girl in the passenger seat cocks her revolver. Rick pounds the hood.

    Rick: Hey! Dennis Hopper! Move this fucking piece of shit!

    Tex: All right. Well, just give me a moment to turn it around.

    Rick: Well, drive it backwards, numbnuts, but fucking drive it and drive it now!

    Tex: Okay. Okay. Stop yelling. Hold your horses, we’re leaving.

    The read head holds her gun tightly. She stares at Rick

    Rick: the hell are you looking at, you little ginger-haired fucker?!

    The car backs down the driveway. Rick takes a celebratory gulp of his pitcher of frozen margaritas.

    Rick: Hey! Come around here again, I’m gonna call the Fucking cops.

  74. Comeon Cameleon

    Perfect song. Perfect scene. Perfect cast. Makes me feel alive 🍺
