Oh my love
help me open my heart again
tear it open let the rain fall in
wash this hardness underneath my skin
oh my love
let me hear your voice come through
I wanna know the love inside of you
make this dark heart believe in what is true

I know that in the dark there's a fear of letting go
I know that in my heart that I fear what I don't know

and this feels like I'm letting go
and this feels like I'm letting go
I'm letting go

it's hard to trust
when your hearts been broken times before
you pull the curtains and you lock the doors
swear you'll never go out anymore

I know that in the dark there's a fear of letting go
I know that in my heart that I fear what I don't know

and this feels like I'm letting go
and this feels like I'm letting go
I'm letting go

well I'm stepping out
I can't see there is no sound
a seeming void becomes a solid ground
A sight I lost becomes a faith I've found

and this feels like I'm letting go
and this feels like I'm letting go

I'm letting go, I'm letting go
I'm letting go, I'm letting go
I'm letting go, I'm letting go
letting go, I'll let it go

    General CommentYeah, I think it's about mistrust of love after a bad relationship. For him it's hard to open himself again and let love in. This song is amazing, I heard it for the first time on One tree hill show and I love it!

    General Commentmy first posted lyrics! hah..

    i love this song. it has a lot of meaning to me right now.
    i think it's about letting go, obviously, but letting go of believing that love is always going to end in heartache, it's about learning to love again. i need to do that.

    We're all scared of love. Of falling in it, losing it, getting hurt, not knowing what'll happen. Even if we don't admit we are, we all are. This guy has met someone who's causing him to slowly let go of these fears. To believe in love. To start over again, despite those fears.

    My OpinionWe all put up barriers to guard our hearts from pain; but pain is a part of love. No matter how much two people love each other, they will inevitably hurt each other. Whether you're starting a new relationship or renewing an old one, you have to trust yourself and the other person not to walk away from one little tear in your relationship. To be able to fully let go and reveal who you are, is to be vulnerable--a feeling most of us aren't comfortable with. It's a beautiful experience when you find that one person who your willing to be vulnerable for, its necessary for a successful relationship.
