Your front brake master cylinder piston is sticking. Typically it means a 
new master cylinder. Some folks have had success with rebuilding instead of 
replacing. Changing the brake fluid once a year usually prevents this.

If you're lucky there's something wrong with the lever pivot point, but it's 
not likely.
