"Letting You Go" as written by and Tom Petty....
I used to think that when this was all over
Yo might feel different 'bout me
Yeah I always knew, one of these days you' d come around
Now I wonder if dreams are just dreams

Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I'm having trouble
Letting you go
Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I'm having trouble
Letting you go

Baby look out your window
It's raining on your summer home
You by the fire keeping warm and dry
There's no one as honest as those in pain
Oh honey can you see me?
Will you let me inside?

Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I'm having trouble
Letting you go
Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I 'm having trouble
Letting you go

It's a restless world, uncertain times
You said hope was getting hard to find
But time rolls on, days roll by
What about the broken ones?
What about the lonely ones?
Oh honey I'm having trouble letting you go
It's off in the distance somewhere up the road
There's some easy answer for the tears you've cried
And it makes me unhappy, makes me feel different
Do you get scared when you close your eyes?

Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I'm having trouble
Letting you go
Whoa oh, whoa oh oh
I'm having trouble
Letting you go

    General CommentHe can't make up his mind if he wants to go or not. He's vacillating and will not or can not make up his mind. Many times a man and woman enter into a relationship and one is a hell of a lot more in love than the other. Unfortunate,yes,but it happens all the time. Somebody is going to get hurt and it will last maybe forever. Machismo takes over sometimes and a man feels like I'm not going to let anybody nail me down. Years later he might look back and say," she was the one", but by then it is usually way too late. Petty meant for a lot of his songs to be heart breakers,no pun intended, and I'd have to say he did a pretty good job.
