about

I wrote this one back when I lived in California . . . by myself. It 's good when the saddest songs are made up . . .

lyrics

LETTING GO

I don't know how to say good-bye
So I'll wait and I'll try to hide
Hide the feeling of nothing left
Of faded romance and emptiness

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show

But I can't go on forever pretending
And you deserve something real
Life is full of unhappy endings
I can't just change how I feel

I don't know how to set you free
The usual words don't sound right to me
You deserve more that just a line
More than words I could hide behind

Love, I'm trying to treat you right
But making love's just an alibi
I hold you close, but I'm letting go
And trying hard not to let it show
