Let Me Go Lyrics
anonymous Nov 18th, 11:22am report
It's about a couple that has been in a rough situation lately and the girl have thought of giving him up because he deserve someone better, but the boy on the other hand wants to hold on. The boy can let go of the bad past for her, but the girl hold on to what she think that is better for them. A fast decision indeed or so I think the easy way out to stop all of the problems because she doesn't want to hurt her anymore. It's soooo clear and so I can really say that the girl really love the boy. She loves the boy to the point that she wants somebody to love him in the ways she couldn't. Because she's hurting the boy so much and in her mind she thought that the boy deserves a love that is much better than the love she can give to him. A love for him that doesn't need to change anything or in other words a love that will not create problems.
That's my interpretation. All I can say is that people tends to make quick decisions. For all I know relationship is build from the challenges they face together that makes their bond stronger, but once someone makes a quick decision of making a stop of the problem... There will be a gap between the couple.
Please don't think of getting out of the relationship. Yes you'll think someone will love him/her better than you, but think of why did he chose you with the knowledge that he/she knows there will be always someone better? He/She chose you nevertheless and I believe that is what matters the most. Choosing to love you nevertheless.

The song should be about a girl who truly does love the boy who also loves her very much. Yet, she knows she cannot give him the love he deserves. She probably had problems in the past and cannot move past it. She loves the boy but she knows it's selfish to keep him by her side but he deserves more. She wants him to find his own happiness and forget about her. She will continue with her life and wants him to be happy.

I think the song is about a girl who is all about self-destruction and self-sabotage. She's in a loving relationship with a man but she doesn't think she deserves him. She thinks she hurts him too much and is constantly trying to fix herself for him. She doesn't see that he loves her and this is why she wants him to let her go. She wants him to move on because she thinks he deserves better than her. She thinks that he deserves happiness and she deserves to be alone or be with someone who will hurt her as equally as she hurts them. Self-destruction and self-sabotage suck.

I think this song portraits two person who love each other immensely ... but somehow there came a gap between them and both of them thought the other half don't love them as they used to therefore she said him to go and love someone else who will love him more but she doesn't know that no one can love him more than her. ... he don't want anyone else .... he just want her

I think it’s about someone who truly loves her in ways she doesn’t understand because she just wants to move on, chase the feeling of butterflies that she misguidedly mistakes for love, and hook up with other guys. So, to appease her guilty conscience and because she thinks she can do better, she is telling him to let go and find someone who loves him in the same way. She’s incredibly superficial and doesn’t understand yet that having someone who loves you and doesn’t give up on you is rare in this world. And most people just look for instant gratification and take the easy route of giving up rather than working through problems and building something that actually shows you’re capable of love and willing to work hard to make it last. Love isn’t effortless, relationships actually take work and are built on mutual respect and value- butterflies don’t last for anyone. She says she wishes he would hurt her more so she can feel better about herself? So he was good to her. She is right then- someone would love him better than her. She’s a selfish, self-important child and he can take comfort in the fact that she will someday be on the receiving end of her own song.

i think it is saying the girl wants her boyfriend to break up with her so she wont feel more guilt than she already has.

I think this song is about a dead relationship.It didn't work out. The girl doesn't love the guy anymore, but he still loves her. The girl is telling him that he shouldn't be holding on to her because someone will love him since she couldn't. She wants him to move on and get over her. She hurt him so much by not loving him and she feels guilty so she wishes he would hurt her more than she hurt him. This is my opinion so no hate please!
