Let Her Go


I remember when she was mine and I was hers
we were happy and loved each other so.But those days are gone now and she
no longer loves me or maybe
she never really loved me at all.

This painful truth that I wish so much
to be a lie is true. That my love now
loves another and still I cannot let her go.

I know she is not lonely and I know
That someone else is now holding her
at night, no she is not lonely so why
can't I let her go.

How do I fade her memory from my
mind when I still care so much. I can't
forget how much I loved her and
how much I love her still today.

There is a pain in my heart when it beats
because it still beats her name. And so
lonely are the nights and I alone with
my empty arms that still long to hold
her. She has already let me go so why
can I not do the same with her.

Maybe I am a selfish lover, that I
would have her all to myself and to
hell with any other. Did I maybe hold
on too tightly, or maybe not enough
that she would find another lover
And leave me. It hurts so much
but i cannot let her go.
