Hanging On To My Letting Go

Okay, by popular demand I worked on yesterday's lyric some more. It's time to let it ferment a few days but I wanted to let you in on the next phase of the process since I let you in on the beginning. Bitchitude suggested a slight change in the punch line which I liked and tried three different ways. So I thought I'd use a slightly different one at the end of each successive chorus. I added a refrain at the end of each verse to avoid writing a bridge and to help the chorus make more sense. Call it a prechorus if you want. I'm giving it lots of air around the lines to invite more interesting musical ideas. If you have any thoughts or input, let me have it. Anything could happen.This lyric, as it is, may be unrecognizable in about a week. Aymiee, I promise to work on the "Singing silently through a pane of glass" lyric while I wait for this one to fester.


PLEASE LET ME GO
copyright 2005 by Bud Buckley


It took too long to find you,
I did me over and you found me
The price so high I was blind to
The cost of letting you astound me
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could, I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
So I beg you, Please let me go

We left home behind
To find a new place
And life was kind
To our searching embrace
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
Don't make me beg, just let me go
Feel me begging to just let me go

Before you, life was more hard
Than the face I showed you
But together we starred
A love story overdue
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
Feel me begging to just let me go

OUTRO:
Don't make me beg, don't make me beg, don't make me beg, just let me go
