"Let Me Go" as written by Casey Beathard and Tom Shapiro....
They were sitting on his tailgate
And she was lovin' on his rough neck
and she was talking about running away
And he was puffin' on a cigarette
Just thinkin' (huh)
How am I gonna say goodbye?

He said, girl you got it good here
and you don't need to mess with
A guy going nowhere
She said how's about Texas?
He got up and shook his head
Then he said, ain't you been listening?
It's never gonna work out
And I think it'd be a good time now to

Let me go
You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't
Let me go

He said other than a dreamer
I ain't nothin' but a drifter
You could do a lot better
Then leaned over and he kissed her
He said you got another year of college
And a good momma and a daddy
And me, I got $93 in this old '82 Chevy

So let me go
You don't need me baby
Stop holding on the way you are
Don't you know I'm no good for you
And it'll only break your heart
If you don't
Let me go

She said, nice try
But you can't hide behind those shades there on your face
Ya see I don't think you're all that tough
I just think you're scared of love
And I think I won't take up that much space

(So)Let me go
Take me with you baby
It's so cold outside your arms/I belong where you are (DEPENDING ON SONG VERSION)
We both know that you're not as strong as you think you are

So let me go
Take me with you baby
I belong where you are
Don't you know I'm so good for you
And it'll only break your heart
Down the road
If you don't
Let me go
With you baby

Let me go
With you baby
Just let me go

    General CommentFirstly, whoever added this lyrics, they're butchered — but I digress. It's about a guy who has a girlfriend who he doesn’t think he deserves. She's totally enamored by him, and knows he's the best thing she could ever ask for. He loves her more than anything also, but thinks she deserves all the things in life he cant give her. So he hesitantly decides that it'd be better if he broke it off with her so she can focus on all the great things she has right at her finger tips, never thinking that even with everything he can see she has, he's the only thing she really cares about. She then explains to him that she knows exactly why he's saying the things he's said and that he needs her more than he actually wants to admit. That in the long run, it'd be worst for the both of them if they didn’t have each other.

    Any-who, I figured since no one had posted anything I'd lay my opinion down. At least this is what it means to me.

    General CommentThis is a great song, but I do think that Jason Michael Carrol sings it better. Maybe that's because I heard it from him first, but anyways the lyrics are wonderful and I love the way it ended, with the girl explaining that her life really will be better with him in her life instead of breaking it off.
