"The One You Should've Let Go" as written by and Zach Williams....
[Chorus]
Come out my love, I’m not the one that you were looking for
I’m not the shoulder you should cry on
I am the one you should’ve let go
Come out my love, I’m not the one that you were looking for
I’m not the shoulder you should cry on
I am the one you should’ve let go

Out my door, on the street,
You then walked, next to me
Through the cold, through the heat
Coming down in my sleep
Grab my arm, whispered deep
How I’m alone, when I think
You’re my slow wearing seek
I’m your crush

[Chorus]

See it by see it
See the streets, see it crushed
All my songs, all my dreams
Yeah I ponder what you think of me

As you said, do you play
Do you risk for a break
On my throne, this is me
I’m your crush

[Chorus]

So our, little babies can sleep
And all of the plans that we’ve made
Are just like a rose on a grave, whoa
So our, little babies can sleep
And all of the plans that we’ve made
Are just like a rose on a grave, whoa

[Chorus]

    General CommentHahaha, pretty sure this song speaks for itself. The person in question seems to think they love this person, but really, they're only fooling themselves.

    General CommentSuper self- explanatory. The singer is letting the person know that they aren't good for them. While this person loves them and has tried making plans for their future - the singer is trying to tell them that it's wishful thinking. He/She isn't the person they should be with, they aren't right for each other.

    While he/she thinks of that person - it's not quite the way they think of them. Almost like being a female with a male best friend or vice versa, and having one fall for the other without them feeling the same way.
