I am afraid of letting go
Even though I know I’ve held on far too long
In this world, I fear change
It may seem a bit strange
Yet the idea of forever is a comfort to me

{I don’t what to let go
Even though I know I have to
Letting go means I’m only one step closer to goodbye
And at the words goodbye, I know a part of me will die}

I want to know that there was once a time this was all real
I want to know it wasn’t just a dream
I know this is how I feel
It will take time just for me to heal
But let me know that this is real
Every good thing must end,
Yet I hope we can stay friends


I’ve held on too long,
And tonight will be the last night I that I hold on to you
And tonight will be the last night that I will cry for you
And tonight will be my last night I will spend with you
You’ll always hold a special place in my heart,
I never wanted for us to be apart


I’ll face my fears,
I won’t hold on for what seems like years
Because I can’t take this pain
Because there is no gain
To holding on to what hurt me
I’m letting go.

Because letting go after a break up can be harder than saying goodbye.
