I Can’t Let Go lyrics

They say nothing lasts forever
Well, I wish that that were true
Cause this aching in my heart won't go away

They say everything must change
They say that time will see it through
Well, I've listened and I've waited for that day

But I wake up with this anger
And the pain won't let me be
And the smile I share
Is only there for show

If I hang on to this heartache
Then my soul will not be free
So I keep trying
But I just cannot let go

I can't let go
I need it to remind me
I can't let go
Oh, I just repeat the past

And though your arms are saying yes
I feel my heart keeps saying no
I want to love you
But I can't let go

I have lived through bad beginnings
And I've seen unhappy ends
So I close the book
Before the story starts

I'm just a witness to my lifetime
And I'm a stranger to my friends
I'm a trafficker
Of broken, damaged hearts

Now you ask me to start over
But it's easier said than done
'Cause the memories are strong when they arise
And when heartache comes a'calling
I won't even try to run
'Cause it's all that makes me know that I'm alive

I can't let go
I need it to remind me
I can't let go
Oh, I just repeat the past

And though your arms are saying yes
I feel my heart keeps saying no
I want to love you (I want to love you)
I want to love you (I want to love you)
Oh, I want to love you
But I can't let go (I can't let go)
No, I can't let go (I can't let go)
Would you help me?
Help me to let go.
