Letting Go

words and music by Kim Townsend
© 2001 (ASCAP)

I woke up alone and missed you so hard
I’m still not used to just me
the years that we’ve spent building an us
have faded away like a dream

Sometimes I doubt that there’s life after you
I can’t picture loving again
you crowd my thoughts though I try to move on
old feelings come rushing in

For such a long time I’ve held on so tight
it’s the hardest thing I’ve had to do
Now I’m letting go with all of my might
‘cause I’m better off without you

A dog cries next door and I know how he feels
my heart would cry too, if it could
I lie here resisting this strong urge to call
which I know I’ll regret if I do

Where will I go what will I do
what if there’s nobody else
to love me enough to get over you
and I’m forced to do it myself
