Put your hands in the water
Watch them go under
Put your hands to the light
Watch the light come through
And I will let you go
And I will let you go

Put your time on the table
See who'll sit down with you
Give your love to the ones
Who offer you bruise
After bruise, after bruise
And I will let you go
And I will let you go
And I will let you go

How we play fight
As we dance slow
The smile you make
Saying yes meaning no
Is so grey, so faint
The words stray in your mouth
With an ache

I'm standing in water
With the light on my shoulder
The weight of the doubt
Turned me to glass
I'm through living in question
Dreaming the answers
No more paving the present
With pain from my past
And I will let you go
And I will let you go
And I will let you go
And I will let you go

    General CommentThe most beautiful sad song I've ever heard. It's pretty self explanatory. Let go of the one you loved so you can go forward. Stop looking back through the pain for your answers. Let them go so you can find what you're looking for...

    General CommentBeautiful song about letting go of someone, so you free them and yourself too. There's a reason for everything, and letting go when things don't work out, is the way forward. Clever song!
    This reminds me of quote:
