Well if the dawn chorus brings the magpie song and I'm not there, you make it on your own
And if the full moon fills the night sky and I'm not there, you wander off alone, I'm not coming home
The sunrise may be beautiful in the desert, girl, but you won't ever know 'cause if you've got a right to love me, I've got a right to let you go

Yes, and if you got a right to love me, I got a right to let you go

You gather like dust in the morning light and like dust you recline
I fought for shadows of beauty in dreams of life, but I could not draw the line
Now you say, "Look at me, baby, I'm wasting away", but you're just wasting time
And you say your truth is changing now, oh but that's your truth, girl, not mine

And if you got a right to love me, I got a right to let you go

You sent back all the sacred scents of time for an echo of the past
You tore down forests of fear with spears of love, but you tore them down too fast
Now I'm questioning the depth of your love, because you won't ever ask
Though every inch of time we've spent is tied around my neck, I’m coming home at last
Girl, you should know

That if you got a right to love me, I got a right to let you go
