View Full Version : "Let Go"

If you've talked to me online lately..You know what's wrong with me! LOL. I know the songs I've written lately were a little..uhh..well, not so up-tempo! With the exception of "I'd Rather Be". LOL! This one kinda reflects what's been going on in my "teenage blues" life lately, ha, but not the ending..k? Be sure to "Give me everything you've got, alright?" It's appreciated! :)
<br>Let Go
<br>You clasp your hands and hit the ground
<br>After five long years of being dragged around
<br>By the only man that you had ever loved…
<br>A hollow cry escapes your lips
<br>The salty tears on your fingertips
<br>Eyes to the sky, praying to the heavens above…
<br>It hits you in the morning the moment you rise
<br>Pictures of him forever imprinted in your mind
<br>Never knew the sadness he would bring
<br>Thought you’d be together, joined by a ring
<br>You thought wrong, ‘cause girl, it ain’t so
<br>He’s gone. Out of reach…Got to let go.
<br>A lump in your throat at the sound of his name
<br>A broken heart, aching from never-ending pain
<br>Going completely out of your mind…
<br>The smell of his cologne still lingers on the air
<br>Reminding you of times when he was there
<br>Questions of how one could ever be so blind…
<br>He said that you two could
<br>Last forever and he would
<br>Love you ‘til, the day that he dies
<br>You thought what you’d found was
<br>That infamous river of love
<br>But it was only a stream of lies
<br>You awake to find you can’t take anymore
<br>Get up and walk through the bathroom door
<br>And you notice the bottle of pills by the sink…
<br>You clench the bottle with all of your might
<br>Say a prayer and look up into the light
<br>Take them and fall into an eternal sleep…
<br>It used to hit you in the morning, the moment that you’d rise
<br>Pictures of him with you, stayed imprinted in your mind
<br>But you never knew the sadness he would bring
<br>Thought you’d be together, forever, joined by a ring
<br>You thought wrong, as the tombstone now shows
<br>You’re gone. Out of reach…Just couldn’t let go.

<br> Well Allen told me I had to get on here and read this song. I'm not very good at this computer stuff and I lost Allen's password so I had to make my own name(MrBurton) but I couldn't get it to work so I'm finally here! The song is Great! It took me by surprise too. And thanks for the support. We all did really good this weekend. Keep up the good work and go for your dreams.
<br>Best Wishes
