Let Me Go Lyrics

One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you're not something I deserve

In my head there's only you now
This world falls on me
In this world there's real and...

    To me it seems as if people are torn between love and reality. Some people have certain things going on we may not know about and we feel are necessary to have to do in order to survive outside of love for one. The girl dancing to take care of the baby or him in real life touring being around women just to live a certain lifestyle as an entertainer.You don't want to her him ..her (visa versa) so if they can understand you have to let go.

    Honestly, I think the video for the song describes what the song could mean. In the video, it shows a young couple who are deffinitely in love with one another. The woman in the relationship happens to be a stripper to raise money to live. Her boyfriend doesn't know this though. Hence, "You love me, but you don't know who I am." She knows that she could find another job to raise money, but she doesn't. "I'm torn between this life I lead and I where I stand" She knows she could do better in life than becoming a stripper, and she believes that her boyfriend deserves more than that. She still doesn't tell him. "In my head there's only you now. And this world falls on me." She realizes that she is indeed in love with the boy, but the pressure of her life puts a strain on things because of what she does for a living. "In this world there's real and make believe, but this seems real to me" She cannot believe she has fell in love and somewhat doesn't want to believe it. "So let me go, just let me go" She doesn't want to become the one who hurts him, so she wants him to let her go. No matter what happens though, she knows he is the only person who matters to her. But she knows when he finds out what she does, he will never be able to look at her the same. "And no matter how hard I try, I can't escape these things inside" She can't escape that fact that she has lied to him. "When the pieces fall apart, you will be the only one who knows" Once he fins out she is a stripper, everything is going to end between them. Hence, "When the pieces fall apart." At the end of the video, the boy drives passed the girl house, and notices her holding a baby. He's torn between believing if it is his, or if it is someone she had sex with as a stripper. It's truly a very sad song, because not everyone can control what they have to do for a living and end up losing the people they love and care the most for.

    If you watched the music video it seems to be more about the girl who is messed up. The guy is rather normal and really loves her but she has psychological issues and he just can't understand her. He doesn't understand why she is seemingly throw ing herself away. He wants her to be better, and she loves him too but she just cannot have him in her life, and she needs him to let her go. She isn't okay with herself and has other things in her life the guy doesn't know about.
    (my last relationship I was that guy)

    I think it's a song about how a guy realizes he messed up to much but still really loves the girl he's with. He just really thinks the girls needs to see what he does and when she does she should leave him or let him go.

    The song could be about a guy (the singer) who's not very good psychologically, he may think he's not enough to her. She loves him, but she doesn't know about his problems that are inside. He wants to break up with her, but also has her in his mind all the time; he wants her to let him go, but he doesn't seem to want to go.
