I can't quit her
She's got a hold on me
She got her hand on my soul
I can't quit her
'Cause I see her face everywhere I go

In the city streets, in the country fields
In the back of my mind, I know it can't be real
For a woman to possess all the tenderness she had

But the hands of time
Keep tickin' on my back
'Cause it's been so long
Since I had her back beside me
Yeah, I know

I can't quit her
'Cause in my darkest night
She comes on like a light
I can't quite her
Try as I may, with all my might

She had a woman's touch, a young girls eyes
And in seconds flat, I was proselytized
Turned around and made to feel sweet love

But the hands of time
Keep tickin' on my back
'Cause it's been so long
Since I had her back beside me
Yeah, yeah

True love is somethin' ev'ry young boy knows about
And he fights his whole soul all the best to find some
I was a young boy 'till I held her in my arms
Now I find that I'm strung out behind some, hey

I can't quit her
She got her hand on me
She got a hold on my soul
I can't quit her
'Cause I see her face everywhere I go
I can't quit her
Woo, ooh, yeah, I know

You know, I see her face everywhere I go
I need her, I need the little girl
