"I Cannot Let You Go" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular Kato Adland....
With sleight of hand and force of will
Closets full of odd-sized shoes to fill
I better be a gifted kid
To undo some of the deeds you did

In 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
You're gonna be alone, gonna be alone, it's gonna be late
Forgive you anything
I try to shake it but it just won't do
And it's all coming back to me now
So we'll pretend or make up something new
You can push me away but I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go

The rubber band is wearing thin
Bursting as reality kicks in
All hope should be at long last lost
But you'll defy all sense at any cost

In 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
You're gonna be alone, gonna be alone, it's gona be late
Forgive you anything
I try to shake it but it just won't do
And it's all coming back to me now
So let's pretend or make up something new
But there's no getting back to the start
I try to shake it but it just won't do
You can push me away but I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go, I cannot let you go

In 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
You're gonna be alone, gonna be alone, it's gonna be late
Forgive you anything
I try to shake it but it just won't do
And it's all coming back to me now
So let's pretend or make up something new
But there's no getting back to the start
I'll be a father, you can be the son
Till I can't even tell us apart
I tried to shake it but the deal is done
You can push me away but I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go (let you go)
Try as I may I know I cannot let you go (let you go)
I cannot let you go

I cannot let you go
I cannot let you go
I cannot let you go
I cannot let you go
