Let You Go

I watched you run downhill
And crash into the ground.
You went through hell and back,
And I couldn't save you.

Don't try to find me here;
I left a long time ago
For the life I now know.

You know I'd hold my breath
Before I let you fall.
You're such a part of me,
And I hope you know
I still care, but I have to move on
And let you go.

Tear down your masquerade,
And show us what you're worth.
Your life is a charade;
I know you can do better.

I haven't seen you in years,
But I doubt you've changed
How you play your games.

You know I'd hold my breath
Before I let you fall.
You're such a part of me,
And I hope you know
I still care, but I have to move on
And let you go.


The author's comments:
We all know of that one person we wanted to save, just to find that no matter what we do, they will retain their self-destructive behavior. This song was written to help such brave humanitarians remember that we cannot control another person's actions and have no other option than to let go.
