Had To Let You Go

There were warnings on the rise of the storm about to blow
Follow everywhere in time
Follow everywhere I go

And I had to let you go

Over hills and under water
From sea to shining sea
There were dreams left long forgotten
And I had to set them free in me

And I had to let you go

Believe me now and listen
Hear the love in every word I say
It?s easier to die than to leave tonight this way
But you?d only be my sacrifice
I?d only be your cause of pain
But to know that you?re not mine
Feels so strange

And I had to let you go
