Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

I still recall the words you said to me
It's what you did not say that sets me free
Now how can I find peace of mind when you keep coming back again?
It's not okay for you to play this game of seesaw with my head

Now it hurts too much
And it hits too hard
And I won't play this part

Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

So now I say the things I want to say
Sometimes it's better letting go this way
I'll always know
Down in my soul
We really had so far to go
I've given all I had to give
And now it's time for me to live
And I won't look back
And I won't regret
Though hurts like hell
Someday I will forget

Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

To say that you've been thinkin
Cause I know it's just the drinkin

It's funny how we seem to end up here
I never thought I'd see this soul disappear

Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

And this is letting go
This is letting go
This is letting go
This is letting go

Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

Don't call me
Don't write
Don't show up in the middle of the night
You know that
We needed
Some time and space to breathe

To say that you've been thinking
Cause I know it's just the drinking

    General CommentI totally agree with you fairy princess about this song Me and my guy broke apart and he would still try to be with me and then he would be so nice and then he would be back to "his normal self" and I couldn't handle all his games anymore.

    General CommentThis is an excellent song for after a breakup, there's no way around that. I love how it's at first all about her, and how she is trying to let it all go. It's not till the line "don't say that you've been thinking, cuz I know it's just the drinking" that you realize it's actually a conversation with her ex. That adds a whole new spin on the song. I listened to this song after I did call, write, and even show up at 3 am. He kept pulling me back and I kept running just as hard back to him, only to be cut off again. This song summed it all up and made me realize what an idiot i had been being and that we were better off without each other.

    General CommentI'm a guy, and this gives me the perspective of the girl breaking up with the guy.. as this have happened to me
    I used to be very mad about that.. i think deep inside i'll always will, i was crazy about her
    "I'll always know
    Down in my soul
    We really had so far to go "
    I knew that so i was very upset.. But i guess some things are just not meant to happen, so i won't call you, don't write, and we'll never show up in the middle of the night.. As this is "letting go".. I hope you find happiness
