Song Description

A parent has mixed feelings about letting a child grow up. The parent has a hard time letting go.

Lyrics

LETTING GO

VERSE 1
My sweaty hands they grip your bicycle seat
I guide your wheels on down the drive
My world keeps getting a little smaller
A fading snapshot, a 3 x 5

PRE-CHORUS
I have a hard time letting go

CHORUS
I?d like to keep you here forever
Save our world in a small glass jar
That I can take out any time I want or need
I?d always have you here with me

VERSE 2
You learn to ride away without my hand
Your eyes wide on the path ahead
Forgotten now are your bloody knees
My knees ache with the changing weather

PRE-CHORUS
I have a hard time letting go

CHORUS
I?d like to keep you here forever
Save our world in a small glass jar
That I can take out any time I want or need
I?d always have you here with me

BRIDGE
How far will that new bike take you?
And will your new bruises burn?
What will life be like without training wheels?
And will you know just where to turn?

PRE-CHORUS
I have a hard time letting go

CHORUS
I?d like to keep you here forever
Save our world in a small glass jar
That I can take out any time I want or need
I?d always have you here with me

CHORUS
I?d like to keep you here forever and ever and ever
Save our world in a small glass jar
I want to be able to take it out any time I need
I?d always want to have you here with me
I?d always want to have you here with me
