If I Let You Go Lyrics

Day after day
Time pass away
And I just can't get you out my mind
Nobody knows
I hide it inside
I keep on searching
But I can't find
The courage to show
To letting you know
I never felt so much love before
And once again
I'm thinking...

    It's about a guy deciding about whether or not tell a girl how he feels about her and what would happen if he doesn't.

    in my opinion, the meaning is you are really like someone, yet you cannot show it.

    You will have so many reasons for this.You cannot show your feeling because internal or external reason.
    You can personally too shy, or you cannot show it because your status/condition.

    my experience, this kind of feeling is suck.
    It is right that you have to choose, you have to show it or leave it.
    In my experience I choose to let it go. It is hard, but I never chase a man.

    It's about liking/loving someone so much but can't explain to them. First verse is saying how they think of them everyday but doesn't have courage to letting them know.
    So thinks about taking the easy way out (letting go)
    The chorus is saying if they let go (give up) then they will never know what their life would be like with them.
    Basically, it's a 'what if' story

    Someone who loves this girl . She understands him like no other and he hides it fo whatever reason but doesn’t let her go because he can’t stand the thought of being away from her outand not knowing
    Again he says he’s shy and proud at the same time and thinks of taking the easy way out
    Wor ld apart could be literal or inhis his mind.

    Don’t le her go

    for me this is love song that never telling her that you love for him/her is over, maybe on her lifestlye is differrent in each other, but she/he decide to let it go because he/she is shy.

    To me, this song is about a guy chasing a gal but it is not working out. He contemplates that giving up would be the easier path but he considers that it would be painful thinking about their possible future (what my life would be holding you close to me)

    This song is not about depression or suicidal thoughts.

    In my opinion, it’s about a guy who has a feeling for someone but he can’t tell it to her. It says they are worlds apart. Possibly they are far away from each other or their worlds are totally different. Perhaps they have differences in personalities, likes, dislikes, etc.

    It talks about love. Listen carefully and you will get the meaning of this song.

    In my opinion, its talking about depression.

    Depression worsens by time.
    Most people are not able to express it, some hide it behind a smile.

    Sometime, they are surrounded by love, yet still feel lonely.

    And, then those suicidal thoughts..

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
