about

This is a sad song about trying to do what's right but knowing deep down you don't want to end a destructive relationship.

lyrics

Watch the stars falling out of the night
You said
When they are gone
We should go too
It felt so poetic
I thought you were so romantic
Now I have to let you go
I can’t keep you with me, so…

There’s something I can’t resist
In you
We’re sad and alone
A knot in my soul
I thought I could stay with you
Keep your head above the water
Now I have to let you go
I can’t keep you with me, so…

You say I was wrong to love you
Even now I’m too scared not to

I never thought I would leave
You, but
When I held a light
You closed your eyes
Falling on a bed of thorns
You are taking me down with you
Now you have to let me go
If you loved me, you would say… so
