The Art of Letting Go

(Originally sung by: Mikaila/ Cover by: Diane de Mesa)

 

Put away the pictures, put away the memories

I put over and over through my tears

I've held them 'til I'm blind, they kept my hope alive

As if somehow that I'd keep you here

Once you believe in a love forevermore

How do you leave it in a drawer

 

Now here it comes, the hardest part of all

Unchain my heart that's holding on

How do I start to live my life alone

Guess I'm just learning, learning the art of letting go

 

Try to say it's over, say the word good bye

But each time it catches in my throat

You're still here in me and I can't set you free

So I hold on to what I wanted most

Maybe someday we'll be friends forevermore

Wish I could open up that door

 

Now here it comes the hardest part of all

Unchain my heart that's holding on

How do I start to live my life alone

Guess I'm just learning, learning the art of letting go

 

Watching us fade, what can I do

But try to make it through the pain

Of one more day without you

 

Where do I start to live my life alone

I guess I'm learning, only learning

Learning the art of letting go
