I've fallen victim to my greatest fear
The calendar marks that I lost a whole year
Three-sixty-five, barely alive
Grace took her good natured time to arrive
Oh my God, this year has dealt me a horrible hand
I'll try and explain, but you won't understand
Well wait, what's today's date?
There's plenty of time left to procrastinate, or plan my escape

Let me go
Let me go

The Autumn leaves join in a bittersweet chorus
A hymn so inspired as if to inform us they're leaving soon
She sends a kiss that we just barely miss
Before Winter sets in and exposes our sins

Let me go
Let me go

I want to be where nobody knows me
I'll be behind the perfect disguise
I'll drive away, I'll dissapear
I want to be anywhere, but here

Spring-time, ever changing
My life's re-arranging
So it seems I'm going down now
Tears fall on the ash, my heart's fading fast

Let me go
Let me go

While I wait for the New Year
To introduce new fears
While I'm wishing that I could be
Anywhere, but here

    General Commentthis is my favorite song by MFH. I cant believe no one has commented yet! But i think it is obviously about someone who does not like where they are, and they have had a bad year, and they just want to leave everything behind. Could be wrong, but it's something along those lines

    General Commentthis has become my new favorite song...i wish that more people would hear them cuz by the looks of it, not many have

    But after listening to this song about thirty times in a row on a nine hour drive...i think this song is about a couple who had been together for a year and didnt want it to get too serious because she was going to be leaving at the begining of fall (for college or something like that)...however they got attatched and fell in love with eachother and wanted to make it work...then she left at the end of summer and as the months passed, she lost interest as he still felt the same and he knows that she has lost interest and he wish they could just let go and get away from it, but everything around him reminds him of it and he wants to go somewhere where no one knows him so he can just start over.

    That is just my two sense

    General Commentwow this song is like the story of my life, well most of it.
    I live in a small town, where everyone knows each other (and are related to each other as well)
    for me instead of the relation ship thing, as one of the people said above me (which I agree with), it's more of a friendship thing. Pretty much I had a best friend who had said some things that ended our friendship and she put me as the villain (blah blah blah). Anyway, now most every thing around my town reminds me of it and all of my other mistakes that I've made (nobody forgets anything in my town). So I want to go some place where nobody knows me and start over new.
