"Let Me Go" as written by Sean Garrett, Bjoern Daniel Arne Yttling, Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson and Shondrae L. Crawford....
One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you're not something I deserve

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

I dream ahead to what I hope for
And I turn my back on loving you
How can this love be a good thing
When I know what I'm goin' through

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and make believe
And this seems real to me

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

And no matter how hard I try
I can't escape these things inside I know
I know
When all the pieces fall apart
You will be the only one who knows
Who knows

You love me but you don't know who I am
I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand
And you love me but you don't know who I am
So let me go
Let me go

And you me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know who I am
And you love me but you don't
You love me but you don't
You love me but you don't know me

    General Commentthis song was actually supposed to be on the spiderman 2 soundtrack-- thats what they wrote it for. if you've seen the movie, you can obviously see how the lyrics go along with it....meaning the kind of double life peter parker was leading... all the other ideas are valid as well but i just figured i'd let you know...

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who trys to hide his dark side but he can't "escape these things inside". He wants the girl to let him go b/c she is a better person than him. -> "your not something I deserve" He feels that the girl wouldn't love him if she knew everything he keeps secret.

    My InterpretationOne more kiss could be the best thing
    One mre lie could be the worst

    He's been lying to her, I feel like, trying to protect her from the parts of himself he thinks is going to hurt her more than bring them closer. One kiss from her could change the whole aspect of the relationship, and one more lie from him could do the same thing in a much more negative thing. By him begging 'let me go', he's trying to protect himself from the hurt he knows is going to happen if he breaks her heart, like her pain is going to hurt him. That's why

    This seems real to me

    is so important because he knows their love is real but

    You don't know who I am

    he's trying to keep the parts of himself that he's scared of her knowing to himself.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy and a girl who care about eachother. i think the guy's undecided though, like he's torn between two sides of him, so he feels he doesn't deserve the love of the girl, because he knows that deep inside he can never be worth her love because he's just not what she thinks he is.

    MemoryThis song seems to be about a guy who's not necessarily a good one or the guy this girl thinks he is. She loves who she thinks he is, and he doesn't exactly want to show her who he really is. He just wants to end their relationship because he knows that eventually she will figure him out and won't be happy with what she finds. He's just trying to keep either of them from becoming so close and then getting hurt.
    When I first heard this song, it reminded me of the relationship I was in at the time. In this case, he just became way to attached way to quickly and already said that he loved me, even though we had just met a week ago. And although I knew form the beginning that we weren't really in sync and never would be, I continued dating him. So the line "you don't know who I am" started out for me as "you just really don't know me that well", but turned into "I'm hiding the fact that I already know this isn't working, and I'm a terrible person for not ending it now".

    General Commenti think this song is about he loves this woman but knows somethings wrong between them and yet doesnt want to believe it........so he is asking to be let go before hurting even worse if he sees the truth and that she supposedly loves him but if she did she would know him and what it would do to him


    im prolly way off on it but its my interpetation

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who has kept a part of themself hidden from the person they love.. A part of them that they fear the other person can't/won't accept, and they would rather go without that person in their life than risk that person finding this.. thing out about them. They love the person with all of their being so they feel they have to let them go.
