I didn't let go 'cause you hurt me
I didn't let go so you'd stay
I did let you go 'cause I love you so much
And it kills me to see us this way

Love saved my life when you found me
A debt I can only repay
By closing the doors, now I'm savin' yours
And I know that you want it this way

Sandman take me much further than sleep
We'll ride down that river of tears
Where only the stars and the angels will weep
As I jettison all of my years

Long are the nights I lay cryin'
Wasn't because you weren't true
I hope you can finally be happy my love,
'Cause I'd give up my own life for you

Sandman take me much further than sleep
We'll ride down that river of tears
Where only the stars and the angels will weep
As I jettison all of my years
Oh, I jettsion all of my years
Oh, I jettison all of my years

    General CommentI've always wondered if there's some definitive answer as to whether the narrator is being dramatic about the end of the relationship or literally committing suicide...I hope it's the latter, which seems fucked up to say, but it just seems like the whole point of the song to me.
