“Can’t Let Go” is a song by American singer and songwriter Anthony Hamilton from his third studio album, “Comin’ From Where I’m From”. It was written by Anthony Hamilton, James Poyser and Harold Lilly. The single reached number one on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in 2004. In this blog post, we will be discussing the lyrics of the song Can’t Let Go by artist Anthony Hamilton. The lyrics of the song are about a man feeling regretful for not being able to let go of his past and fully commit to his new relationship.
The chorus is “Can’t Let Go” with an instrumental outro, repeating six times before fading away at the end of the track. In my opinion Can’t Let Go deals with more than just letting go from old bonds or relationships in order to move forward in life, but also dealing with guilt that overcomes you when your own weakness prevents you from moving on. I think this idea can be exemplified by one lyric within the chorus: “I know it’s wrong/ But right now don’t seem so strong.”
