"If You Really Love Her, Let Her Go" as written by and Chris De Burgh....
Please give me one more chance,
I'm begging you, just one more chance,
If you'll listen
This is not some movie romance,
Or everlasting love at a glance,
Won't you listen
She is a part of me now,
She's the very heart of me now, so
If you really love her, let her go.

She's your daughter and I know that you care,
But like a lost bird in the cold night air,
She is lonely
Thinking back to the days you were young,
When the pain of loving was so very strong,
Weren't you lonely?
She is no longer a child,
She's a woman with love in her eyes, so
If you really love her, let her go.
Oh she is like a bird,
Yearning for the winter wind,
If you let her go,
She'll come again in springtime,
But if you make her stay,
And hold her freedom in your hand,
In the morning you will wake,
And she'll be gone away
She is no longer a child,
She's a woman with my love in her eyes, so
If you really love her, let her go,
If you really love her, let her go,
If you really love her, let her go

    General CommentA father won't give his daughter's hand in marriage. He's trying to persuade the father that it is serious - "this ain't no movie romance", and that he really loves the daughter and will take care of her.

    The father has to realise that the daughter isn't a child any more - "she's a woman with love in her eyes".

    If the father really loved her then he'd do what was right for her, not what he wanted to do - otherwise she'll rebel and he'll loose her altogether - "in the morning you will wake and she'll be gone".

    Great song

    I wonder how many times this has actually happened.
