I know that I have got to let you go.
Because I feel like I'm Ted Hughes and you're Sylvia, and I'm dragging you down.
Because I put on love songs, and you put on break-up songs.
And if I kiss someone new, will you just say "don't worry."

Maybe you're just letting me go like a mother letting their baby fall asleep.
You know like when you understand that you've got to do something you do not want to do.
Like I know that I have got to let you go.

This means I'll have to sell off all my clothes,
And find me some new friends that you don't know,
Forget about the things that you had said,
And stop eating food the way it was prepared.
This means I'll take some photos off my wall,
That is all, that is all, that is all.

But how can I really say how I feel when I've sworn not to say that I love you in song?
I need to find a better way of saying that we've been through whole wardrobe changes together,
Or maybe I'll say our skin cells died and over five years we grew back as new people,
But I've sworn not to say that I love you in song
