"Let Me Go" as written by Sean Garrett, Bjoern Daniel Arne Yttling, Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson and Shondrae L. Crawford....
One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you're not something I deserve

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

I dream ahead to what I hope for
And I turn my back on loving you
How can this love be a good thing
When I know what I'm goin through

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

And no matter how hard I try
I can't escape these things inside I know
I know,
When all the pieces fall apart
You will be the only one who knows
Who knows

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

And you love me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know who I am
And you love me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know who I am

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who trys to hide his dark side but he can't "escape these things inside". He wants the girl to let him go b/c she is a better person than him. -> "your not something I deserve" He feels that the girl wouldn't love him if she knew everything he keeps secret.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who has kept a part of themself hidden from the person they love.. A part of them that they fear the other person can't/won't accept, and they would rather go without that person in their life than risk that person finding this.. thing out about them. They love the person with all of their being so they feel they have to let them go.

    General CommentLove this song! I think this is the best 3 Doors Down song I have heard in a very long time. I think it's about a guy who is torn between two different things. One more kiss could be the best thing, one more lie could be the worst. I was in a situation like this and it's hard to explain. There's just something about him that you like but you don't know what. And there's the mystery of what one more kiss would be like. However, everyone on the outside sees him as someone that doesn't deserve the girl, and there's the mystery of how one more lie could ruin it all. And she loves him, but doesn't know the true him. He's torn between what it's like now, and what it could be. He doesn't know if he should stay or leave. That probably made no complete sense to any one you! But I just don't know how to explain it!

    General Commenti think this song is about he loves this woman but knows somethings wrong between them and yet doesnt want to believe it........so he is asking to be let go before hurting even worse if he sees the truth and that she supposedly loves him but if she did she would know him and what it would do to him


    im prolly way off on it but its my interpetation

    General CommentI can actually see alot of different possible interpretations for this song - I agree with all of the above thoughts, but also think it might be a sort of fantasy he's living in -

    "In this world there's real and make-believe
    This seems real to me

    You love me, but you don't know who I am..."

    Sort of like saying, you love me even though you haven't met me. Then: "I dream we head to what I hope for
    And I turn my back on loving you..." Is saying there is something standing in the way of following his heart.

    Of course, it's probably not the original sentiment behind the song, but an interesting way to look at it.

    General CommentPersonally, I think this song is about a relationship where one of them, lets say its the girl, has a secret that she's been hiding from the guy. She feels really guilty about it, and she wants to tell him, but she doesn't think that he will still love her once he finds out. So she keeps the secret, lives a lie, just to keep him with her.

    "I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand "
    I see the secret as an addiction of some kind that she's hiding from him because she knows how disappionted he would be. The life she leads is one of addiction, and where she stands is with him. She is torn between the two.
