The Box Tops

Maybe I'll write you a letter
Maybe I'll give you a call
Maybe I'll drop you a line
When I'm feeling better
Maybe I won't after all

Somewhere a river is flowing
Rolling on into the sea
Somewhere a flower is
That don't mean anything to me

Let me go
Let me go
Let me go,
Don't give me the answer
'Cause I don't wanna know
Just let my heart go on beating
A little bit longer
I'm so young
I'm so young

Don't pull me up
When you think I'm falling
I've been waiting so long to fall
Don't come to me
When you think you hear me calling
It won't be me in that call

(Repeat Chorus)
I'm so young
I'm so young
