When I thought I had your heart
To keep forever
Now I live with how it is
Nothing lasts never
I’m never in a place for too much time
I try to leave my troubles far behind
Everything I did, I did for you
Now there’s nothing left for me to do

I’m never gonna fall in love again
The way I love you
You know it’s so damn hard letting go
Standing here holding my heart in my hands
Yes I am
Trying to live every day the best I can, yeah
You know it’s so damn hard letting go . . . of you

Every day’s a brand new start
Of a pain never ending
I can’t erase this lonely heart
It keeps on remembering
Every day I live, I live with you
And with all the things we’ll never do
Heaven holds a place for souls like mine
Trying to leave my troubled past behind

You know it’s so damn hard letting go
Standing here holding my heart in my hands
Yes I am
Trying to live every day the best I can
You know it’s so damn hard letting go
You know it’s so damn hard letting go . . . of you.
