Smash Cast - 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
And 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)
Won't you help me?
Help me to let go.

    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 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.
