Never written a break up song before. And this one? Ain't about anybody I know.

lyrics

HOW CAN I LET YOU GO?

how can i let ya go?
so many days we been together
you want out
we need to talk you say
oh i HATE those words
can’t we try again
cuz baby this is
killing me

how can i let you go?
where did we go wrong, sugar?
somethin’ about yr face…
hiding’ the truth
you fell outa the sky
a direct hit
can’t we try again
cuz baby
this is killing me

a river of feeling
burns through my soul
where do we begin r end?
a mountain top
a cloud
a divining rod
a shotgun
i just can’t stop
i just can’t stop
loving you

how can i let you go?
yr everywhere i look
i am shook
w breaking up
it ain’t in my love book, baby
throw me a lifeline
in the nick o time
cuz baby this
is killing me

a laugh on a bus
an eye with a wink
a tourist on a island
postcard away from here
i’ll write you a letter in my mind
but i won’t send it
cuz i can’t stop
i just can’t stop
loving you

how can i let ya go?
