"But I Can't Let You Go" as written by and Robin Wiley....
I can say that we are through
And I will almost mean it
But simple words just can't undo
All the ties between us
Part of me will hang on
Long after your gone
Though it's the right thing for you I know
I can watch you leave
But I can't let you go

I will be your friend
I will dry your tears
Though I won't be the one you give your love to
Through the years
And I will do my best
Not to let you know
That I can watch you leave
But I can't let you go

I will smile and say I'm fine
Anytime you ask me
I wish for you a love like mine
But one that makes you happy
You'll always own every part
Of this broken heart
Though I would die before I'd let it show
I can watch you leave (I can watch you leave)
But I can't let you go

I will be your friend
And I will dry your tears
Though I won't be the one you give your love to
Through the years
And I will do my best
Not to let you know
That I can watch you leave
But I can't let you go

And I will do my best
Not to let you know
That I can watch you leave
(I can watch you leave)
But I can't let you go
(Can't let you, can't let you, can't let you go)
Can't let you go

    General CommentI wonder if this is the right interpretation. It seems to me, she loves someone that much, that she'd rather be friends if he doesn't love her, than losing him. She can't let him go, not because she doesn't want to. She can't let him go, because something doesn't feel right inside when she tries to forget him. It's like he's a part of her.
