Let Her Go Lyrics

You only need the light when it's burning low,
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow,
Only know you love her when you let her go.

Only know you've been high when you're feelin' low,
Only hate the road when you're missin' home,

    we dont appreciate someone enough until they're gone,sometimes only their absence makes us realize how special that special that person was,and how much you needed them,and that person became a part of you,because life's dreary and sad without them.Maybe because love just happens and you dont take notice of how dependent you've become,and you'll only see clearly how much you love that when they're actually gone.

    In the whole song he’s saying “you only need the light when its burning low you only miss the sun when it starts to snow”. He’s saying you only appreciate something until its gone. When it says “starting from the ceiling to the dark same old empty feeling in our heart”. He’s saying that you don’t miss something till it’s gone.

    After a brake up he gets depressed over it and realizes that you “only lover when you let her go. Realizing that he feels sad about everything. Everything he touches dies saying that hes depressed and can’t seem do anything right. He sees her when he falls asleep he can’t get her out of his head he can’t let go.

    Don't take things for granted. If you love someone make sure you let them know before THEYRE gone.

    We only appreciate things when we don't have them. We take things for granted. He loves the girl but didn't realize it until it was to late and she was gone.
