​Heart On A String

This song is by Candi Staton.

When I was out there, and all alone
I was searching for a friend
You saw my need and you came along
With your charm you took me in

Overnight, you capture my heart
Turn the smoke into a flame
I can't free my heart from you baby
'Cause you keep it hanging on your string
No I can't free my heart from you baby
'Cause you keep it hanging on your string

Your way old loving is my weakness
You made me yours body and soul
My mind tells me I to leave you
But my heart won't let me go
'Cause you tie me down to you in every way
Turn my pleasure into pain

No I can't free my heart from you baby
Cause you keep it hanging on your string
No I can't free my heart from you baby
'Cause you keep it hanging on your string

Every time I try to break loose
That's when you tighten up on your string
I can't hold up to what I'm going through
My heart is weakening from the strain

No I know if you untied me
I'd be bound to you just the same
I can't free my heart from you baby
Cause you keep it hanging on your string
I can't free my heart from you baby
'Cause you keep it hanging on your string
I can't free my heart from you baby
'Cause you keep it hanging on your string
