Today I had to make the hardest decision
To set you free
To let you be
For as they say
If you love it let it go
and if it was meant to be
It will come back
Well I hope you come back
I hope we were meant to be

the path you chose i long and narrow
and the turns are killer
the lights will dim
and those eyes that shimmer will die
as I die here in silence waiting

the city light seem so beautiful
and full of promise
but they only bring me pain
as another innocent is swept up
to the lies
to the descet
but you must do what you say you must
and I can only sit back to watch you suffer alone
Just as I am alone

    General CommentThis song is sweet. Mikey I'm glad you set me free. Actually this song is awesome. It's about my best friend finally letting go. I'm so proud of you, you grew up so fast. This is Bcoyle, roadie #1, out.

    General CommentThis song here is about wanting to party and have city life fun. Which I can tell you is fun, but it is empty and you come up empty. Being Single if fun but if love appears in front of your face you shouldn't just forget it. Love doesn't come everyday and you can't find it at the local store. Millions of people are searching for it, so if you find it cherish it and hold it high and when it gets tarnished just polish it off.
