"You Keep Me Hangin' On" is a single by Kim Wilde. It was originally performed in 1966 by The Supremes. The song is the first track from her 1986 album Another Step. Wilde's version was a total re-working of the original, completely transforming the Supremes' Motown Sound into a 1980s power pop song. She and her brother, producer Ricki Wilde, had not heard "You Keep Me Hangin' On" for several years when they decided to record it. The song was not a track they knew well, so they treated it as a new song, even slightly changing the original lyrics. It became the biggest hit of Wilde's career, reaching #2 in the United Kingdom, as well as hitting the top spot in Europe and Australia. It also became Wilde's only major hit in the United States, spending a week at #1 in 1987. In 2006, she performed a new version of the song with the German singer Nena for her Never Say Never album.

She released her debut single, "Kids In America", in 1981 at the age of 21. The song was written by both her father and her brother, Ricky. Ironically, Kim had never been to America at the time. "Kids In America" was a huge success in the United Kingdom and around the world, being a U.K. #2 hit. Her debut album, 'Kim Wilde', (released on RAK records) came out in July 1981 and stayed in the U. Show more ...

You Keep Me Hangin' On - Kim Wilde

Keep me hangin' on -
Set me free
Why don't you
Baby?
Get off my life
Why don't you
Baby?
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on.
Set me free
Why don't you
Baby?
Get off my life
Why don't you
Baby?
'Cause you don'are really need me
But you keep me hangin' on.

Why do you keep a comin' around playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a brand-new start?
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me.
Set me free
Why don't you
Baby?
Get off my life
Why don't you
Baby?
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on.
Now you don't really need me
You just keep me hangin' on.

You say although we broke up
You still iust wanna be friends

But how can we still be friend;
When seeing you only breaks my heart again?
- And there ain't nothing I can do about it -

Get out
Get out of my life and let me sleep at night

'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on.
You say you still care for me

But your heart and soul needs to be free.
And now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me.
You don't want me for yourself

So let me find somebody else.

Set me free
Why don't you
Baby?
Get off my life
Why don't you
Baby?
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin on.
Why don't you be a man about it and set me freez
Now you don't care a thing about me

You're just using me
Using me.
Get out
Get out of my life and let me sleep at night

'Cause yov don't really love me
You just keep
Me hangin' on.
