Letting Go

 A child
 That hides behind a chair
 Almost afraid to grow
 Without you there
 Whisper words that make you see
 What you've come to mean to me
 A voice
 That rises from the heart
 The hunger that seizes me
 And tears my soul apart
 And serving only to renew
 How I came to feel for you
 Through your love I'd seen forever
 We became as one
 I never saw you turn away
 My love was blind
 You call me when your storm is over
 Crying over love that I can give you
 When the night is the colder
 Holding on to me
 Cos it's so hard letting go
 And it's so hard not to cry
 With your face that lies, you memorize
 The reason why
 And when love is gone
 Then one of us will know
 It's so hard letting go
 Foolish that I still believe
 That love should never die
 It makes me cry to witness where the story ends
 All the lovers in the world will
 Echo all the words that I will leave you
 When the night is lonely
 Only goes to show
 That it's so hard letting go
 And it's so hard not to cry
 And I kneel for yesterday
 When you were mine
 And when the love is gone
 Then one of us will know
 It's so hard letting go...
