Letting Go (Holding On)
The hardest part of love is letting go
I started to let go of youFor I knew I couldn't hold on.
You kept on walking away from me,Your stride was just too strong.
I said goodbye to the times we shared
And the memories we made.
I watched you grow more distant...
I watched our friendship fade.
I wiped away my tears for you.
I knew they would hurt you to see.
I tried to keep a brave face on
So that you wouldn't feel guilty.
The fire that once burned in my heart
Smouldered to just a flame.
Now I keep the hope alive;
That you would return to me again.
I started letting go of you,
But find myself holding on..
You'll have to push me far away
If you truly want me gone.
