She doesn't close the door
As she visits the bathroom
The sound of flushing water
Comes a little bit too soon
I wonder what she's doing
As she hums a little tune
A sharp ?? smoke
Drifts across the room

She thinks I don't know
She thinks I don't know
Oh, but I know

Her phone rings once again
In the middle of the night
"Hello," I answer,
As I fumble for the light
I reach across the bed
And it's then I realize
She hasn't come home
She's not coming home tonight

But I won't let her go
No, I won't let her go
I won't let her go

Cause I can't let her go
I can't let her go
I can't let her go
I can't let her go

One night as we're driving
To some place I'm not sure where
There's a strange sort of tension
Hanging in the air
And she turns to me and says,
"Honey I swear
That I don't care about you"

She thinks I don't know
She thinks I don't know
Oh, but I know

And then when we get home
We just sit there in the car
I simply stare ahead
And wonder how we got this far
I try to imagine
The breaking of my heart
But I feel nothing
And that nothingness leaves a scar

But I won't let her go
No, I won't let her go
I won't let her go

Cause I can't let her go
I can't let her go
I can't let her go
I can't let her go

When we were young
Oh, we were young
And we were everything
When we were young
Oh, we were young
And we were everything
When we were young
Oh, we were young
And we were everything
When we were young
Oh, we were young
And we were everything

But I won't let her go
No, I won't let her go
No, I won't let her go
I won't let her go

Cause I can't let her go
I can't let her go
No, I can't let her go
I can't let her go

I can't let her go

    General CommentOne of my favorite Get Set Go songs. I can't believe I'm the first to comment on this song! This song is totally the estranged feelings I had with my last girlfriend. We were together for a couple years, and near the end this is exactly how I felt. I knew she didn't care about me much anymore, and we'd often kind of just sit in awkward silence when we were together, but despite her feelings toward me and the inevitability of our near end, I couldn't let go of her. I still loved her, and wanted everything to be okay. And now that she's gone, I too have a scar on my heart, so in that sense I can't let her go because of the hurt she left me, and because I still have those feelings of longing for what we had. Get Set Go is the most underrated band I know. I often consider Everclear to be the most underrated, but then I realize Get Set Go deserves that crown. Many of their songs have amazing lyrics. They have the best tunes for when you are depressed or angry. Their upbeat songs about crummy feelings or situations makes them very unique, and they deserve much more fame. One of my absolute favorite bands, and again, this song is pure quality.
