Tell her that you love her, if you really love her
But if your heart just ain’t sure, let her know

Growing by the hour, love just like a flower
But when the flower dies, you've got to say goodbye
And let her go

Let her go [x2]

Tell her that you’ll be there, if you’ll really be there
Separation’s supposed to make the heart grow fond
But it don’t

So tell her that you love her, if you really love her
But when your heart just ain’t sure, let her go

Let her go [x4]

[Scat singing]

    General CommentHe's not scat singing. At the end he says "or you can keep her, it's ok, it's up to you, make your own choice" -- according to the Pitchfork album review, this song was recorded as the "upbeat single" that the label wanted, and Mac was not very happy about it. I'm guessing that ending phrase is his rebellion to that, undermining the main advice of the song
