"Having To Let Go" as written by and Ryan Alan/kamerman Dunson....
This winter is rising
And you're not here
Sweetly leave.
Scarlet red.

(So sweet so sweet!)

This winter is rising
And your not here
Sweetly leave.
Scarlet red.

The moon is dark
And I
I can't sleep

The moon is dark
The moon is dark
And we can't sleep

These conversations kill
You put me down for the last time
These conversations kill
These conversations kill
And you had me at point blank range
Square between the eyes
You let me go your feelings change
But I can't help mine
I can't help mine.

I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go

This winter is rising
And you're not here
This winter is rising
And you're not here

so just leave
Lets just leave
Don't pull us out
Don't pull us out.

These conversations kill
You put me down for the last time
These conversations kill
These conversations kill
And you had me at point blank range
Square between the eyes
You let me go your feelings change
But I can't help mine
I can't help mine.

(It just hurts my pride to say
You're alive)

I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go
I'm having to let go

and I was sweetly
Rejected
Oh I sweetly
Sweetly fell
Fell through your hands
And I was sweetly
Rejected
Oh I sweetly
Sweetly fell
Fell through your hands
And I was sweetly
Rejected
Oh I sweetly
Sweetly fell
Fell through your hands
And I was sweetly
Rejected
Oh I sweetly
Sweetly fell
Fell through your hands

And there's a melody
That I long to hear
And that a melody
That goes like this,
Like this

    General Commentoh my f-ing god why hasnt anyone commented, damn this song is soo amazing. i think it is about a guy that had this girl and they liked each other but she changed her mind on him and he still liked her. its all about letting go and moving on.

    General CommentYeah really... this song rocks. I went to their show last night and it was awesome. The line "these conversations kill" is so amazing, it reminds me of my ex. Such an amazing band...

    General CommentThis song is so amazing!
    To me hes talking about a break-up and the things that come with it like having weird conversations with the person and that we might still love. And they might not love us back.

    Having to let go - We we re recorded this song... because that last recording of this song for the old cd was rushed... it was my fav song on (Having to let go)... This song was a song i wrote to Summer about just ending things... and it was a good way to end the cd by prolonging the song out and just making it all ambient and melodic... During this time of my life.. we were done dating.. but we would still visit almost every month.. and even though she was with other guys.. including the guy shes with now.. i would still come and stay a weekend with her.. and we wrote the song about just letting go of everything and ending it on good terms.. and moving on with life.
