Let Her Go

Well, you only need the light when it's burning low,
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow,
Only know you love her when you let her go,

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low,
Only hate the road when you're missing home,
Only know you love her when you let her go,
and you let her go...

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
Yet dreams come slow and they go so fast 

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe someday you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies 

Well, you only need the light when it's burning low,
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow,
Only know you love her when you let her go,

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low,
Only hate the road when you're missing home,
Only know you love her when you let her go,

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Because love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
Because you loved her too much
and you dived too deep 

Well, you only need the light when it's burning low,
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow,
Only know you love her when you let her go,

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low,
Only hate the road when you're missing home,
Only know you love her when you let her go,

and you let her go.
