A Good Time for Letting Go

I wish I could go back
Do you remember all the good times and the laughs?
Now I'm sittin' here alone
Wishin' we still had that
But I can't lower my standards anymore
Tryna talk to you, it's become a chore
And I can't handle that
No matter what you say, it'll never be the way it was before

Chorus:
My heart's tellin' me to fight for you
My conscience is tryna tell me what to do
And my head's tellin' me to let go of you
It's taken me a while but I thought it through
I've held on for as long as I could
Fought for you like a good friend should
But you were always givin' less than you took
I've finally figured it out
And it's never or it's now
And I think I know
Right now seems like a good time for lettin' go

I'm tired of wastin' my energy
If you want me back, you can fight for me
But forgiveness
It ain't somethin' I can guarantee
Once in a while I'd get my hopes up
But then you'd go again and mess it up
Your ego started showin'
There's only one thing left to say, and I think you know it

My heart's tellin' me to fight for you
My conscience is tryna tell me what to do
And my head's tellin' me to let go of you
It's taken me a while but I thought it through
I've held on for as long as I could
Fought for you like a good friend should
But you were always givin' less than you took
I've finally figured it out
And it's never or it's now
And I think I know
Right now seems like a good time for lettin' go

Bridge:
I gave you chance after chance
Honey, try and understand
I can't spend my life waitin' for you
I got other plans
I was only gettin' hurt
And as time went on it just got worse
I'm done tryna figure it out
Tired of you pushin' me on the ground
It looks like a good time for lettin' go now

My heart's tellin' me to fight for you
My conscience is tryna tell me what to do
And my head's tellin' me to let go of you
It's taken me a while but I thought it through
I've held on for as long as I could
Fought for you like a good friend should
But you were always givin' less than you took
I've finally figured it out
And it's never or it's now
And I think I know
Right now seems like a good time for lettin' go
A good time for lettin' go
